HISTORY: LIBYAN ARAB AIRLINES is the flag carrier of Libya. Based in Tripoli, it operates scheduled passenger and cargo services within Libya and to Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, the majority of which leave from Tripoli International Airport. Benina International Airport in Benghazi serves as a secondary base. The carrier traces its roots back to September 1964 when Kingdom of Libya Airlines was set up in conformity with law no. 22. Following the 1969 coup d'etat, the airline was renamed Libyan Arab Airlines, or Jamahiriya Libyan Air Lines, on 1 September.
