Taking the Jump Seat to Málaga

Share this article

On 19 June, we were fortunate enough to join the pilots of Norwegian flight DY4221 (NAX21U) on the flight deck for the four hour flight from Stockholm-Arlanda to Málaga. When we weren’t busy staring out the window or staying out of the way, we took a few photos and some video.


We received our departure clearance and headed for Runway 01L, ready to depart via the NOSLI 4 C Standard Instrument Departure (SID) up to 5000 feet.

Cruising over Germany, we took the opportunity to check Flightradar24. The in-set screenshots and the photo were taken less than a minute apart.

South of Freiburg we made a gentle right turn to put us on a course over Basel.

After passing Geneva, Lyon, and Toulouse, we made a slight left to cross the Pyrenees.
