FLY OYA (YI, Tripoli Mitiga) took delivery of its first A320-200, which is also its first narrowbody aircraft, on December 28, 2022.

The 14.9-year-old 5A-EMA (msn 3418) was ferried from Cairo International to Tripoli Mitiga. It was acquired by Sky One earlier this year and subsequently leased to Romania's Aerro Direkt (Bucharest Henri Coanda). However, despite plans to run the aircraft under ACMI and charter contracts, the Romanian airline ferried it to Cairo for maintenance shortly after registering it in Romania and subsequently retired it from its fleet without having ever flown it commercially.

FLY OYA said it would use the aircraft to "open new destinations" but did not offer any details.

The Libyan carrier, which has been active since April 2022, currently operates a single in-house A330-200, which has been in storage at Istanbul Sabiha Gökcen since July 2022. Since then, the carrier has been wet-leasing a unit of the same type from Egypt's Ajwaa Airlines (AJY, Cairo International). Flightradar24 ADS-B data shows, however, that SU-GCI (msn 696) was repositioned back to Cairo on December 14, thereby suspending FLY OYA's flight operations.
