The company was set up in early 1962 as a Libyan-owned charter airline that initially employed British crews.[2] The airline took delivery of its first aircraft, a British-registered Douglas DC-3 bought from Autair, in March 1962 (1962-03).[3]

United Libyan Airlines was absorbed into Kingdom of Libya Airlines on 2 October 1965 (1965-10-02).[4]
