The Malaysian government’s Airbus Corporate Jet A319 has been zipping across Australia, which coincided with Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s family holiday Down Under.

The aircraft, bearing the registration number 9M-NAA, took off from Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah airport in Subang Jaya on Dec 22 at 12.07am and landed in Gold Coast, Australia at 10.06am the same day.

However, the stop was brief as the aircraft took off from Gold Coast at 11.47am and landed in Brisbane at 12.09pm. The plane stayed in Brisbane for four days.

There are no direct commercial flights between Brisbane and Gold Coast as they are only 110km apart, or an hour's drive. 9M-NAA, a non-commercial jet, made the journey by air in around 20 minutes.

Coincidentally, after the aircraft’s one hour and 41 minutes stopover in Gold Coast before travelling to Brisbane, Najib’s son Mohd Norashman Najib began posting pictures from Gold Coast on Instagram.

On Dec 26, the Malaysian government jet took off from Brisbane at 9.11am and landed in Gold Coast at 9.35am.

Again, the stopover at Gold Coast was brief, lasting only two hours and 47 minutes.

The plane then departed Gold Coast at 12.22pm and arrived at Perth International Airport at 2.47pm. The aircraft has remained there to date.

Coincidentally, Norashman then began posting Instagram photos from Perth...
