5Y-VIP ASA African Safari Airways Airbus A310-304 (MSN 620)
African Safari Airways was established in 1967 and operated charter flights from European airports to Mombasa. In 2001 the airline could emerge from the heavy financial problems and replaced its DC-10 with a 3-class configurated Airbus A310-308, leased from Hapag-Lloyd. This example was delivered to Hapag-Lloyd in January 1992 as D-AHLC, before leased to ASA in 2002 as 5Y-VIP. In 2008 it returned to Germany and sold to aircraft trader Kyrgyz Trans Avia, which sold it to Iranian carrier Mahan Air in 2010. The aircraft is still active with Mahan Air as EP-MNP.
