Libyan Airlines takes delivery of its first A330 Airbus

Libyan Airlines, the national carrier of Libya, has taken delivery of its first A330-200 becoming a new operator for the type.

The carrier already operates seven A320 aircraft, with three A330-200 and four A350-800 aircraft on order.

Accommodating a two-class configuration of 24 business and 235 economy seats, the aircraft is  powered by GE CF6-80 engines and will be deployed in the Middle East, around Dubai and Jeddah, as well as on Asian and European trunk routes.

“We are pleased to welcome Libyan Airlines as a new operator of the A330 family aircraft. Libya has great potential and its fleet is comprised of predominantly Airbus aircraft,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “With the A330-200, Libyan Airlines will benefit from the aircraft’s low operating costs, proven reliability and great passenger appeal.”

The A330 Family, which spans 250 to 300 seats, and includes Freighter, VIP, and Military Transport/Tanker variants, has now attracted more than 1,200 orders, with around 900 aircraft flying with more than 100 operators worldwide. Ever since the original version of the A330-200 entered service, the hallmark has been its very efficient operating economics. Thanks to the introduction of numerous product improvements, it still remains the most cost-efficient and capable aircraft in its class operating today, and the family achieves average dispatch reliability above 99 percent.
