Libya - UP

Sweden is contributing with flight operations to Libya in order to maintain the no-fly zone in accordance with the decision taken by the UN Security Council.

Most of the Swedish contribution of around 130 people come from EAW (the Expeditionary Air Wing) who have been on standby for the Nordic battle group, which consists of about 110 people. The group is complemented by 20 specialist staff.

The operation includes eight JAS 39 Gripen aircraft, a TP 84 (C-130) Hercules aircraft for air refuelling and a reconnaissance aircraft.
