ASKY Airlines (KP, Lomé) has registered its first B737-800 in Togo, in contrast to all other of its aircraft still registered in Ethiopia.

5V-TTV (msn 43422), a 5.6-year-old B737, was delivered from maintenance at Addis Ababa International to Lomé on September 2 and entered into service on September 7, 2022. Although it was ferried from Ethiopia, it was not transferred from ASKY Airlines' shareholder Ethiopian Airlines (ET, Addis Ababa International). In this instance, its previous operator was Myanmar National Airlines (UB, Yangon)

The aircraft is owned by AerCap/GECAS, the ch-aviation fleets ownership module shows.

The Togolese carrier operates four B737-700s and eight -800s, all of which, except for 5V-TTV, are registered in Ethiopia. One -700 and five -800s have been transferred from Ethiopian Airlines. Ethiopian Aviation Holding Group owns a 40% share in ASKY Airlines, which is its largest venture in Africa outside of its home market.

ASKY Airlines told ch-aviation that it was planning to register more aircraft in Togo but did not provide details.
