Berlin

Divided during the Cold War, its 18th-century Brandenburg Gate has become a symbol of reunification. The city’s also known for its art scene and modern landmarks like the gold-colored, swoop-roofed Berliner Philharmonie, built in 1963. Germany’s capital is a cauldron of cool, with more hipsters per head than anywhere else in the country. Berlin offers the perfect opportunity to discover the edgy culture, the famous landmarks and the gourmet highlights of this up-and-coming city.

Berlin Schonefeld Airport

The General Aviation Terminal (GAT) is situated in the south of Berlin Schönefeld Airport and The GAT is open 24 hours a day from Monday to Sunday. The airport was situated just twenty five minutes from where our clients were staying, making it the ideal choice. A private jet charter flight allowed them to avoid the main hub airport and pass through security in a quick and efficient manner.

FLIGHT TO BERLIN

Falcona received an email for a private jet charter flight from Manchester to Berlin, Germany. It was for a group of six work colleagues as a reward for doing well this year. From the initial enquiry Falcona guided them through the booking process, making it simple and stress free.

The clients arrived at the private FBO terminal, where they were greeted by a member of the handling agent staff, who directed them to the passenger lounge.

Private Jet Experience    

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, Falcona made sure the aircraft was fully stocked with beer wine and champagne!

The aircraft started up and made its way to the runway for departure. Once the aircraft has taken off Falcona kept an eye on the flight of the aircraft, until it landed at Berlin Airport.  Once they landed a call was made to the handling agent at the private terminal, to make sure the clients had landed safely and the chauffeur has taken them to their final destination.
