Libya is seeking to buy 22 new aircraft to overhaul the fleet of flag carrier, Libyan Arab Airlines. The carrier is already in talks with the world’s major aircraft manufacturers, including Airbus and Boeing, about the order, which would be worth up to US $1 billion. "Libyan Arab Airlines seeks to renew and upgrade its fleet with the state-of-the art new planes. Libya has allocated $1 billion to that purpose,” Hussein Dabnoun, chief executive, Libyan Arab Airlines told Reuters. "Libya's policy on buying the new planes focuses on accompanying the purchase of the jets with a deal over maintenance, spare parts and training pilots," he added.
