Afriqiyah Airways was established in April 2001 and initiated services in December 2001. It is based in Tripoli, Libya and operates domestic flights between Tripoli and Benghazi, as well as scheduled services to more than 20 destinations in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. The airline's main base is Tripoli International Airport. Plans are being made to serve destinations in central and southern Africa and the Far East.

The 9.9.99 logo on the side of Afriqiyah's airplanes refers to the date of the Sirte Declaration which marked the formation of the African Union. The idea was for Afriqiyah to be the "Airline of Africa" with its hub in Tripoli. The airline generated US$120 million in revenue in 2006. By mid October 2010, Afriqiyah Airways and Libyan Airlines (Libya's other state flag carrier) were expected to merge into one airline. Founded as a state flag carrier with the aim of improving air services from western Africa to Europe. Afriqiyah became part of state-owned Libyiah Afriqiyah Aviation Holding Company in May 2008. Staff members: approx 1,300
