Airbus says Libyan carrier Afriqiyah Airways has ordered another four of Airbus' A350 widebody jets, bringing its total order to 10 airplanes.
In a statement on November 12, Airbus says Afriqiyah Airways is also converting its previous order for six A350-800s into orders for the larger A350-900.
At list prices, the four additional jets are worth 1.1 billion euro ($ 1.4 billion).
The new order comes as French foreign minister Laurent Fabius is in Libya, where he is meeting with President of National Congress Mohamed Megarief and Prime Minister Ali Zidan.
