The vice CEO of the Libyan Airlines aviation company, Abdel Atti Al-Meshyakhi, disclosed that the airliner's income has decreased by over two thirds due to the sharp drop in the number of international flights.
In a press statement, Al-Meshyakhi added that the reasons behind the decrease of income also include the clashes at Tripoli airport in 2014, when Libyan Airlines lost a number of its aircraft, lack of equipment, having no enough space at the airports, shortage of services, and the current security unrest in Libya.
"We expect that the proceeds of the Libyan Airlines company will experience a hike soon by the end of 2017 given the current efforts being exerted by the relevant aviation authorities and state authorities." He explained.
Libyan Airlines is troubled by a group of setbacks including a division in the administration into one in the east and another in the west. It is also burdened by the expanding of employment intakes in the eastern division, adding to the already weak income of the company, which was heavily harmed by the damage that took place in Tripoli and Benghazi airports since 2014.
