A former Aer Lingus Boeing 737-500 returned Ireland this summer operating charters to Cork Airport and Dublin Airport in a new guise. The aircraft registered 9H-MAC Boeing 737-548 MSN 24968 to Malta Charter specialist Maleth Aero.

The aircraft was delivered to Aer Lingus as EI-BXG in January 1991 and was re-registered as EI-CDC in June 1991. Aer Lingus restructured it’s fleet in 2004 on Airbus A320/321 platform and subsequently retired its Boeing 737-400/500 fleet from service.

EI-CDC was sold in 2005 becoming YL-BBH with Air Baltic.

Between 2005 and 2013 the aircraft was operated by Air Baltic, AeroSvit (UR-AAK) and Ukraine International (UR-GBE).

In 2015 the aircraft underwent a VIP conversion and was registered as G-UMAR to Opel Investments and in June 2017 was registered as 9H-MAC to Maleth Aero.
