NJS shuffles BAe 146s and Avro RJs

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.
