PARIS —

Libyan carrier Afriqiyah Airways has ordered another four of Airbus' A350 widebody jets, bringing its total order to 10.

In a statement Monday, 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 (EURO)1.1 billion ($1.4 billion).

The new order comes as French foreign minister Laurent Fabius is in Libya, where he is meeting with President Mohamed Megarief and Prime Minister-elect Ali Zeidan.
