Libyan Airlines ( ; transliterated: al-Khutut al-Jawiyah al-Libiyah), known as Libyan Arab Airlines over several decades, is the national flag carrier airline of Libya. Based in Tripoli, it operates scheduled passenger and cargo services within Libya and to Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, the majority of which leave from Tripoli International Airport. Benina International Airport in Benghazi serves as a secondary base. The company is a member of the Arab Air Carriers Organization and the International Air Transport Association.

Due to the 2011 Libyan civil war, the airline has been grounded since March of that year. Also, the proposed privatization and merger with Afriqiyah Airways, which originally was planned to be effective in November 2010, has been postponed.
