(Corrects first paragraph to say resumption of service is linked to new aircraft and second paragraph to say contract was extended in story originally published Nov. 20.)
Air Libya will resume regular passenger flights to the southern desert city of Kufra on Nov. 22 after adding a new aircraft to its fleet, said Mohamed Elobeid, the airline’s vice president for commercial services.
Elobeid also said by phone the airline had extended its contract with Waha Oil to transport company personnel, which was a service that had required the use of three of the four aircraft it had in its fleet. He said the airline had taken delivery of an aircraft leased from Turkey and had acquired two others that will arrive by the end of November and mid-December.
