Libyan Airlines has taken delivery of its first Airbus A330-200, one of four ordered by the flag-carrier as part of a long-haul fleet renewal.
The A330s are being fitted with General Electric CF6 engines and configured in a two-class layout, with 24 business and 235 economy seats.
Libyan placed the order in January 2008 and the agreement included four A350-800s - the airline is one of the customers which still intends to take the -800 version.
The Tripoli-based carrier operates seven Airbus A320s.
Airbus says the A330 delivery makes Libyan Airlines a new operator of the type, adding that the twinjets will be deployed on routes to Asia and Europe, as well as used for Jeddah and Dubai services.
