ARA6637 Flight Routing

Tue Jul 17, 2012 2:38 pm

Two question I have after looking at planefinder and seeing 5N-MJJ flying over SC as ARA6637:

1. Where is it going? Its heading south
2. Why is it going there?

Most probably on its way back home to Nigeria after a maintenance check at INT. They tend to go there (and to the UK for that matter) quite regularly and then ferry back via the Caribbean.

Looks like a maintenance handover at INT - are Arik 737s maintained there?
5N-MJK routed BGI-OPF-INT on 14 Jul.
5N-MJJ did a test flight from INT yesterday (16 Jul) and is now routing INT-OPF-BGI (although flightaware shows it as ARA6635 http://flightaware.com/live/flight/ARA6635)

--- while writing this, I have seen that they do indeed undergo maintenance at INT - looks like the explanation. 5N-MJK should be there now.
