Does anyone know the purpose of the Egyptair flight that arrived in Bogotá today?

It was a charter carrying Colombian troops from and to the Multinational Force and Observers peacekeeping mission in the Sinai Peninsula. The Colombian Ministry of Defense usually relief troops via commercial flights or, more rarely, using their own metal. Since the Colombian border is closed until September 1, they chartered this flight to bring and send troops back to Egypt.

It's landing, why stomp on the breaks if you don't need to?
