Afriqiyah Airways announced on Thursday that it would resume flights to Europe starting the end of next month.
The company explained in a statement that it had registered and operated two Airbus A320 aircraft of its fleet in a European country to avoid the ban on Libyan air carriers. It agreed with the registering company to return the two aircraft at the end of next month, which will enable Afriqiyah to run its flights into Europe.
Afriqiyah also disclosed that the registration of its two aircraft in Europe would allow its flights to cross the European space, which means the use of a shorter flight line, in addition to a number of privileges such as reducing the duration of the trip to Istanbul by one hour, less than the time it takes now.
The company further stated that it had changed the economy class seating to accommodate 180 passengers instead of 142 ones.
