Last minute business flight from Manchester to Luxembourg

Falcona organised a last minute private jet charter flight on a Embraer Phenom 100 for three business people. Initially they wanted a one way flight, however they decided to book a overnight return. As they had just hand luggage, the Phenom 100 was the perfect choice, so they could get to their business meeting on time.  



14:30 – Our commercial flight has been cancelled at the last minute and we need to get to Luxembourg for a business meeting. We need to leave as soon as possible. Can you let me know if you can source an aircraft? We’re 3 passengers, with no bags, just hand luggage.

Is there anything parked up and available nearby that could get into Manchester in time?

As soon as we received the message, we sourced two aircraft that would be able to perform the flight. Two aircraft were due to arrive in Manchester but they were both larger aircraft and one of the aircraft, the crew couldn’t perform due to crew duty hours.

Falcona – We sent them the best option, which was only real option, which they decided to go with, the Embraer Phenom 100.

Searching for last minute flights can be complex as some operators might have the aircraft available but no crew able to perform the flight due to crew duty. Other factors include the repositioning flight of the aircraft, the further away it has to travel, the more expensive the charter price.

The aircraft we sourced using our professional database, was in Oxford at the time of enquiry and the crew were fortunately at the airport ready. This allowed us to book it there and then.
