Libyan Arab Airlines (Arabic: الخطوط الجوية الليبية‎; transliterated: al-Khutut al-Jawiyah al-Libiyah) was the country's flag carrier following previous Kingdom of Libya Airlines after Kadhafi's coup d'état of Libyan revolution in 1969. The company operated scheduled passenger and cargo services within Libya, Europe, North and Central Africa, Middle East and Central Asia.
In March 1992 United Nations Security Council Resolution 748, adopted, as a consequence of the Libyan government allegedly having supported the terrorists responsible for the bombings of Pan Am Flight 103 and UTA Flight 772, a trade embargo which included the delivery of new aircraft or spare parts that could possibly boost the military capacity of the country, and Libyan Arab Airlines was denied any landing or overflight rights of third-party countries. Thus, all international flights came to an end and LAA could only operate on domestic routes.
In April 1999, civil sanctions against the country were lifted, and Libyan Arab Airlines could recover a route network similar to the one offered prior to the 1992 trade embargo. Fleet and route network grew further when regional carrier Air Jamahiriya was merged into Libyan Arab Airlines in 2001.In 2006, the airline was renamed Libyan Airlines.
