Airline to operate A330 for first time

Libya’s national carrier Libyan Airlines is expanding its fleet with the delivery of a new A330-200 aircraft from Airbus.

The arrival of the aircraft marks the first time the Libyan carrier has operated an A330. It has a further three A330-200 and four A350-800 aircraft on order with the French aircraft manufacturer.

The airline currently operates seven A320 planes.

During the Paris Airshow in June, Airbus won $68.7bn-worth of business, covering orders for 466 aircraft. At total of $29.4bn-worth of preliminary agreements for 225 aircraft orders were made and $39.3bn of firm orders were placed.

In mid-June, the new Tunisian-based airline Syphax Airlines signed an agreement to buy three A320neo airplanes.
