Two families were interested in chartering a private jet for their holidays to Mallorca during the busy summer period. They wanted to use the aircraft for both families and making the best use of the aircraft and their time.

Why private jet is better choice.

You’re free from schedules set by the commercial airlines, saving time by departing and arriving at a time that suits your needs.

Clients on arrival are shown into the passenger lounge, where they can have an early morning tea or coffee and biscuits before they depart.

In some cases it is possible for the clients to arrive and walk straight trough to the aircraft and depart straight away. No time is wasted.

Falcona were at Blackpool to meet the clients as it is only an hour away from our base. Falcona we feel it’s important to meet the clients when we can, to make sure all goes smoothly.
Whilst Falcona was there we had a coffee and a chat with the family and were on hand to answer any questions they had about the flight.

Which aircraft and why: Choosing the aircraft depends on the distance travelling and also the number of passengers. The fact that the clients told us they would need a jet that seats up to six people and was capable of transporting them to Mallorca non-stop.

The CJ2 aircraft is extremely popular for short European hops.

Falcona sourced a Cessna Citation CJ2 private jet that seats up to six people. The aircraft was the ideal choice for our clients.

The high performance Citation CJ2 is a roomy, light aircraft. It’s contemporary, spacious cabin interior gives the impression of a much bigger aircraft. Incorporating the latest in avionics technology, the CJ2 comfortably accommodates up to a maximum of six passengers.

Cabin features

The cabin of these small jets feature six individual seats in a club four plus two arrangement with  wash-room facilities at the rear. The Citation Jet 2 is the ideal choice for near European private flights for up to 3 hours where jet travel is essential, but economy is also important. The CJ2 is probably the most reliable light jet ever built and it’s extremely popular with our clients.

The separate baggage holds are plentiful and remote to the cabin so that sporting guns can be carried.  The CJ2 offers greater range and speed, perfect for a flight from Manchester.

Clients aircraft set up for their flight

The clients chose to fly from their nearest airport instead of having to travel to Manchester which is about a 45 minute drive away from their homes. Private jet charter allows you to use airports closer to your home, saving time and the hassles associated with long motorway journeys.
The families drove to Blackpool Airport and left their cars until they returned. Staff at the handling agents, took their keys, moved the car to a safe and secure location. This saves the aggravation of finding a place to park and the extra parking fees you find with commercial flights.

Aircraft being push backed for departure

Why its good to split the cost – it keeps the cost down as just a one way flight and booked in advance got a discount. split the cost so worked out better and cost and time efficient method of travel, turned up 20 minutes before their flight with kids who were surprised as not told they were flying private until they got to the airport.

Champagne at the ready!

Falcona organised the catering with our local catering company Gast Maison, who are based at Manchester Airport. The families ordered some mixed sandwiches, fruit along with soft drinks and snacks for the children.
As with all our clients, Falcona asked what type of champagne they liked. Their choice was a bottle of Laurent Perrier rose.

Lots of luggage ready to be loaded onto the aircraft

Luggage can be tricky on small aircraft, due to the nature of the hold compartment.
Some aircraft can use the tail cone of the aircraft as well as the hold. Falcona always recommend that you bring soft sided suitcases and bags,as we get told on a regular basis by the pilots that it’s much easier to pack on smaller aircraft.

CJ2 set up ready for clients arrival.

Once the aircraft was ready, the passengers were escorted to the aircraft, by the handling staff and the Captain.
Falcona could sense the excitement and joy of the teenagers who were about to embark on their first private jet flight.
Once on-board,the clients were all set for take-off for their holidays. As always Falcona, kept a check on the flight until they landed at Mallorca.
On their arrival, Falcona called the handling agents at Mallorca to make sure the chauffeur cars were waiting to take the family to their hotel.

Post flight

On arrival back at Blackpool, Falcona spoke to the pilots about the flights to see if there were any issues during the flight. They were happy to report that the passengers were happy with everything and found the whole thing enjoyable.
