Within the framework of strengthening joint bilateral cooperation between the State of Libya and the United States, on Monday, 14 December 2020, the Libyan Air Ambulance accompanied by members of the Embassy of the State of Libya in Washington, DC received a new Cessna Citation 680 Latitude ambulance.

Members of the Embassy of the State of Libya also participated in the conclusion ceremony for the training of the Libya Air Ambulance crew members. Captain Fathi Naji, Director General of the Air Ambulance, extended his appreciation to Ambassador Wafa Bughaighis who greatly contributed to overcoming certain difficulties and provided necessary support to the Air Ambulance team.

Cooperation between the United States and Libya in this field will continue to be strengthened through the purchasing of three helicopters next year in the beginning of 2021 and the building of a maintenance center for such aircraft at the Mitiga International Airport (Tripoli). This center will be the first of its kind in Africa, and will subsequently be ready for service by the end of April in 2021.
