Sky Wings to take delivery of Boeing 757-200 registered SX-BTH

Sky Wings is expected to take delivery of their first Boeing 757-200 in Athens the next couple of days. The plane is expected to depart from SJO (San José, Costa Rica) tonight and is heading to YYR (Goose Bay, Canada) before crossing the Atlantic and continuing to Athens. The plane is currently registered N410JR (c/n 27204) and is expected to be reregistered to SX-BTH upon arrival in Athens. This was originally intended to be taken by Khors Aircompany under the registration of UR-CDN but ended up with Sky Wings. Since 26/9/2008 it was parked in San Jose and a few weeks later it went in Coopesa hangar for cabin rearrangement and other maintenance operations. During the last week it was doing engine power tests and yesterday it was prepared for today's flight. This plane is expected to operate on the Tehran - Kish Islands route at Iran.
