Fly RAK (Ras Al Khaimah), not to be confused with RAK Airways, is a new charter and ACMI carrier in the United Arab Emirates. The new airline has leased its first Airbus A320.
Former Spanair Airbus A320-232 EI-EUL (msn 2027, ex EC-IPI) after undergoing maintenance at Dublin has been repainted in the colors of the new company. The aircraft had been ferried from Barcelona to Dublin on February 17, 2012 following the collapse of Spanair, and subsequently placed into storage at Dublin prior to its repaint and overhaul pending its next assignment with Fly RAK. The aircraft is being leased from ILFC.
