Birmingham, UK to New York

Falcona organised a one way private jet charter flight from Birmingham Airport, UK on a super mid-size Embraer Praetor 600 to New York . The purpose of the flight was for the passengers return home after visiting relatives.

Once we had the enquiry from our website, we sent a couple of suitable aircraft quotes to the client. The aircraft we chose were a Embraer Praetor 600 and a Bombardier Global 6000, with both aircraft being able to do the flight direct.

The Global 6000 is a ultra long range aircraft and is perfect for long haul flights. The Praetor 600 is a super mid-size aircraft that has the range to do this trip comfortably.


Thank you for confirming your flight booking with Falcona Private Jets. Kindly provide us with full passenger passport details (picture via WhatsApp, text or email) and mention any specific catering and service requirements to us.

It is the sole responsibility of passengers to clarify in good time, the testing requirements needed for their destination, as the situation is changing all the time. Check on the UK.Gov website for foreign travel advice and entry requirements.

Please also find your invoice for your charter attached. We will provide you with a flight brief at least 24-48 hours before departure. We look forward to welcoming you on-board.

Once everything was booked and payment was made by the client, the aircraft re-positioned from Milan to Birmingham the day before departure.

We spoke to the FBO at Birmingham Airport, to make sure that all was ok and if it was possible to meet the passengers before departure. We met our passengers on arrival at XLR Jet Centre and spoke with them about the flight. We were also able to let their grandson have a look around the fantastic facilities, as he loves airplanes.

Everything went smoothly and our passengers took off on time, with no fuss.

Client Review


Reached home safe. Service and food was great. Mr P.

Thank you so much for the photos! I couldn’t attend as my husband and I have a newborn now and she keeps me up half the night! My husband said he had a nice chat with you and that the plane and service was impeccable. Thank you for allowing my son to view the plane, it made his year!  We will definitely be using your service again in the future.
