Chapman Freeborn will be partnering Air Libya to place and operationally manage an Antonov An-26 aircraft in Libya.

There is expected to be high demand for the freighter which will be based at Tripoli’s Mitiga International Airport (MJI) on a long-term lease agreement with immediate effect, Chapman reportedy said.

The An-26 – which offers a 5.5 tonne payload – will be available for ad hoc cargo charter requirements within Libya as well as international flights to and from the EU and North Africa.

It is the intention to introduce internal scheduled services to connect Tripoli and Benghazi with Libya’s more remote airfields – including regular operations to the oil fields in the south of the country.
