Berniq Airways (NB), a private Libyan airline, has taken a major step towards fleet expansion by signing an agreement with Airbus to purchase six brand-new aircraft. 

The deal was inked on Thursday, May 16, 2024, at Airbus headquarters in Toulouse, France, and includes both A320neo and A321neo aircraft.

The A321neo comfortably seats 180-220 passengers in a standard two-class layout, with a maximum capacity of 244 in high-density configurations.

According to Airbus, a unique feature of the A320neo Family is its consistent design across size variations.

This allows Berniq to leverage the skills of its pilots, crews, and mechanics. By mastering one model, they can operate all models efficiently, enhancing operational efficiency.

Berniq further outlined that this agreement will be followed by several other agreements covering various areas, such as training, maintenance, and safety.
