Ibiza

During the summer months Ibiza is one of if not the most popular destination to fly to by private jet. Many of our clients fly to Ibiza for the awesome night-life. Lots of the top super star DJs also fly to Ibiza to play sets at famous venues such as Ocean Club and Space. There are three main clubbing resorts in Ibiza. San Antonio, Ibiza Town and Playa d’en Bossa. All offer those looking to party a pulsating night out.

IBIZA 31247710 - ibiza island night view

Our clients PA contacted Falcona for a return price flight from Manchester Airport to Ibiza for a week, for up to eight passengers. Falcona searched the marketplace for the most suitable aircraft. Our client indicated that she wanted just one quote, as Falcona generally send out three to anyone who would like a price. As requested Falcona, sent the charter price for the aircraft along with pictures of the jet.

 

During the booking process, the clients changed the number of passengers that were travelling from eight on the flight out to six and three for the return. The great thing about private jet travel is the level of flexibility it allows clients, to change the number of passengers.

Ibiza crew…

Once all the booking process had been completed, behind the scenes Falcona worked with the operator to ensure all was ok.

On the day of the flight the aircraft arrived at Manchester Airport about an hour before departure. The Captain sorts out all the payments with the staff at Signature, for things such as the catering and any fuel which is required for the journey.

Passport Issue

We advise you to bring your passports, although depending on your destination and nationality you may not need your passport when travelling by private jet. Customs and immigration procedures must be complied with for all private jet flights.

These will all be done done prior to your flight, making your check in procedures quicker. At larger airports the private jet terminal will have a dedicated customs and immigration staff.

In our case one of the travellers, had sent in an expired passport, which was picked up by the operator, as he was about to send through the details to the handling agents at the airport.

As soon Falcona got wind of this, we immediately contacted the PA who contacted the passenger to send us through his new passport, just in the nick of time. Good job as he would not have been allowed to join the others.

Private Jet Experience    

Adrian at Falcona, personalised the cabin for clients arrival. Two bottles of Laurent Perrier rose were placed on-board the aircraft, along with special catering (sushi) magazines and newspapers.

Clients arrived in a chauffeur vehicle, saving any hassles finding the terminal and parking. They were all shown to the passenger lounge, where they were offered tea and coffee and biscuits before the flight.

They were in high spirits to say the least before their flight and once the aircraft was ready for departure at 10am they were all escorted to the jet by a member of staff as well as the captain of the aircraft.

As is custom for a lads private jet holiday, they posed for some pictures in front of the aircraft before boarding. Taken by Adrian and a member of the staff at Signature.

The aircraft started up and taxiied to the runway for departure. Once the aircraft has taken off Falcona keeps a a close eye on the flight of the aircraft, until it landed at Ibiza Airport.

The flight from Manchester to Ibiza lasts about two hours thirty minutes. Once they landed a call was made to the handling agent at the Ibiza private terminal, to make sure the clients landed safely and the chauffeur has taken them to their final destination.

Clients had a great flight with standard catering and also some extra sushi was on-board at the request of the clients. So they were drinking and partying in the sky preparing for a hectic week in Ibiza.

We were in constant contact with the operator of the flight to make sure Falcona clients were happy. There was a slight hitch on the flight back from Ibiza as the aircraft was slightly late for take-off, however this enabled our clients to have some extra rest time…

Citation Bravo

Aircraft

The aircraft that we chartered was a Citation Bravo, which seats up to eight passengers. This is unusual as generally a Citation Bravo has seven seats, however this aircraft like many others had been modified to seat eight.

As the aircraft generally seats 7, one of the clients questioned the validity of this as he had only seen on the internet that they seated seven. Falcona had to reassure them that the aircraft did in fact have eight, as it was viewed the week before the flight.

It was in Manchester, so Adrian was able to take a look around the aircraft and talk to the pilots. So that was fine in the end. Phew.

Many charter brokers do not have this access to aircraft like Falcona, in some cases they have never seen the jets they charter to their clients.

The Citation Bravo is one of Cessna’s best selling private jets and is an ideal choice for travelling on shorter trips around Europe. The Bravo is able to accommodate up to seven passengers and is comfortably configured with reclining leather seats.

The streamlined aircraft is capable of flying you as swiftly and smoothly as possible to your chosen destination. It can reach high altitudes enabling it to voyage above inclement weather.

Cabin Interior 

With a comfortable interior, including full reclining leather seat sit provides the perfect environment to manage your business project or family holiday. Once you have climbed the steps into the Bravo and have taken your seat, the noise and bustle of the outside world seem to melt away into silence.

Comfortable revolving chairs, extra headroom, a long list of options, elaborate noise insulation all of these are a clear indication that this space was created especially with work and relaxation in mind. The aircraft is equipped with a refreshment centre offering a fully stocked bar and an enclosed lavatory is located at the rear of the aircraft. With the ability to fly to smaller regional airports the Bravo allows flexibility and convenience along with privacy and comfort and is perfect for individuals or small groups wanting discreet, cost-effective and luxurious travel.

It’s a popular choice of aircraft for clients flying from the UK, for their holidays. Lots of baggage space for suitcases and it is also great for ski and golf equipment. The Bravo can fly from Manchester to Malaga comfortably or if you’re flying in the US, it can fly direct from New York to Miami.
