Australia’s National Jet Systems (NJS) had to shuffle some of its BAe 146s and Avro RJs to deal with maintenance and lease renewals. Avro RJ70 VH-NJT (msn E1228) underwent heavy maintenance. RJ70 VH-NJW (msn E1223) had been scheduled to cover for her during this maintenance, but NJS had to make alternative arrangements when VH-NJW’s lease to Air Niugini was extended to January. In the end, 146-100 VH-NJY (msn E1005) covered the weekday runs to the Telfer gold mine and Murrin Murrin Nickel mine, while 146-300 VH-NJL (msn E3213) operated the weekend services to Christmas Island and Cocos Island in the Indian Ocean, her shorter range compared to the RJ70 meant that a fuel stop in Learmonth. Both VH-NJY and VH-NJL are normally operated on behalf of Airlink.
