Berniq Airways opened its Benghazi headquarters yesterday at a ceremony attended by the city’s VIPs including the eastern Central Bank of Libya Governor Ali Hibri.
Berniq is a newly established private sector company based in Benghazi with a capital of LD 200 million. The Benghazi-based Bank of Commerce and Development owns 40 percent of the airliner. The airliner will use Benghazi’s local airport, Benina airport, as its hub and will start its domestic and international flights with a fleet of three Airbus A320 aircraft.
It expects its first aircraft to enter service at the beginning of April with the other two craft expected to enter service in May, according to Berniq founder Jamal Abdul Malik, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Bank of Commerce and Development.
