Afriqiyah Airways has taken delivery of the first aircraft to be painted in its new livery - an Airbus A320 .

The 2013-build aircraft (MSN 5448) is powered by CFM International CFM56 engines.

It was delivered to Sabha International airport on 29 January, sporting the new colours selected to replace Afriqiyah's former 9.9.99 logo.

The new design features a black tailfin adorned with three blue stripes, representing the neck markings of the Turtle Dove - an international symbol for love and devotion.

The Libyan flag carrier has a further three A330s and ten A350-900s on order with Airbus.
