However, the ch-aviation fleets ownership module shows that AerCap owns fifty-two delivered B737-8s, of which only two are currently unassigned to an airline. VP-CZI (msn 60705) and VP-CZS (msn 60704) are both ex-Okay Airways (BK, Tianjin) stock and are currently under maintenance at Addis Ababa.

The aircraft were delivered to the Chinese operator in 2018 and were retired after the March 2019 grounding of the type, according to the ch-aviation fleets history module.
ASKY Airlines currently operates four B737-700s and eight B737-800s. The airline is 40%-owned by Ethiopian Aviation Holding Group.
