SkyUp MT (U5, Malta International) will wet-lease two A320-200s over the Summer 2024 season to boost its capacity from its Egyptian bases.

They will serve various European and North African routes. Configured in a single-class layout seating up to 180 passengers each, the aircraft are currently wet-leased to Uzbek start-up Humo Air (HJ, Tashkent International), the ch-aviation fleets module shows.

SkyUp MT currently operates two in-house B737-800s, both wet-leased to FlyOne (5F, Chisinau International) in Moldova. Its in-house flights under the 'U5' code are operated by aircraft wet-leased from Ukrainian sister carrier SkyUp Airlines (PQ, Kyiv Boryspil). The Malta-based airline, which is a subsidiary of tour operator Join UP!, launched bases at Hurghada and Sharm el Sheikh airports during the Winter 2023/24 season, initially on a seasonal basis before transitioning to year-round services.

The airline told ch-aviation it would operate from both Hurghada and Sharm el Sheikh during the Summer 2024 season, but exact plans were not finalised yet.
