Jota Aviation operated its first flight on behalf of BA CityFlyer on 6 February. After positioning from Southend to London City, BAe 146-200 G-SMLA (msn E2047) operated BA8712 to Edinburgh, then BA8717 back. She returned to Southend that evening. Jota was recently added to the list of airlines that BA CityFlyer calls on to cover for problems with its own Embraer E-Jets, following an audit by British Airways. Cello and WDL Aviation are also frequently called upon to provide such services with their BAe 146s.
