Libyan consolidation approved by government

Posted 11 October 2010 · Add Comment

Libya's two state carriers, Afriqiyah Airways and Libyan Airlines are expected to be merged next month, following government approval.

Analysts are questioning whether the Afriqiyah brand is retained for long haul routes after the merger.

Last year the two airlines were grouped together under the Libyan African Aviation Holding Company (LAAHC), an organisation set up to develop the country’s air transport. 

At the present time both carriers have Airbus aircraft on order.
