Afriqiyah Airways may invest in Senegal Airlines

The management of Afriqiyah Airways have reportedly held preliminary talks with their counterparts in Senegal Airlines regarding a possible Libyan investment into the struggling operator.

Libyan Deputy Prime Minister of Technical Affairs, Abdul Salam Algadi, told Senegalese Television that Afriqiyah could make "generous resources" available to the Senegalese carrier in the near future, adding:

"We are aware of the difficulties facing the Senegalese airline. We just want to assure you of our support for the re-launch of Senegal Airlines, in a win-win partnership ... Senegal will soon have a competitive airline."

According to the report from ch-aviation, the Libyan carrier has been looking to re-establish its sub-Saharan African network, abandoned following the reolution in 2011.
