Colombian President Route From Switzerland...

Fri Jan 25, 2008 1:30 am

I wonder what would be the route from President's Uribe of Colombia coming from Davos Switzerland to Medellin Colombia.
Colombia's presidential plane is a 737 BBJ. What do you guys think?

Why should he take any other way than the direct one? ZRH-MDE is about 9000km and should be ok on his BBJ, no?

That was one of my doubts, if the BBJ can cover that much mileage. Thanks

It would depend also on how many passengers FAC 0001 is configured for. 5,626 mi is well within the BBJ's maximum range if it's fitted with the complete complement of AFTs.

Well, I don't know, I only know that President Uribe usually travels as light as he can; he does not like big parties spending public resources.
