Air Libya is to almost double its fleet size in the coming weeks, according to Libya Herald.
Mohamed Elobeid, Air Libya’s vice president, said that until recently Air Libya had four aircraft, three of which have been providing a dedicated service to Waha Oil for almost a year. The fourth was used as a charter service for other purposes, but was kept on standby for Waha Oil if needed.
Last week, however, Air Libya took delivery of a 737-400 aircraft on a minimum six-month lease. The company now hopes to provide three flights a week to Kufra — on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays — in addition to its passenger services to other destinations.
At the end of this month, Air Libya will be expanding its services still further with the arrival of a recently purchased RJ100 aircraft, a newer version of the BAe 146. The company has also purchased a second RJ100 which is due to arrive four weeks later, taking the total fleet size to seven.
