The Air Ambulance Service has received a new Cessna Citation Latitude (Model 680A) aircraft as part of the Libyan-US cooperation support.

An additional three helicopters will also be delivered the next year, said the Media Office of the Air Ambulance Service.

The media office indicated that a maintenance centre would be built at Mitiga International Airport to service air ambulance vehicles, noting the centre, which is the first of its kind in Africa, will be ready by the end of April of the same year.

The new air ambulance is the third of its kind in Libya and will contribute to providing free air ambulance service to all, according to the media office.
