Thanks Gkirk, I thought MAN was their first revenue earning flight! It also says so on the pic. info?  Confused

Rob K, the airline is registered in the UK but is based out of Malta! The aircraft is currently being leased from Swiss carrier Hello!

Quoting Propman (Reply 6):

SAS and Saudi Arabian Airlines both operate the MD90 to the UK so this isnt a first. There are currently no UK carriers operating the MD90 and Britishjet doesnt count as a UK carrier because its Malteese.
Equally Cursed and Blessed.
