08 Oct Pet charter flight Girona to Manchester
Falcona organised a one way private jet charter flight from Manchester to Girona for one person and their two pet dogs on a Citation XLS+ super light aircraft.
Hi, I need a flight home for my daughter & her 2 dogs, early next week if possible from Girona to Manchester Airport. I will need the same flight home in a couple of weeks, date not yet confirmed.
Does the first one have a toilet ? They look the same why the price difference ? just working out which one to choose, I’ll go for the first one if it has a loo.
I will book the XLS+. The dogs will get their pet passports done on Saturday & my daughter will take a covid test on Monday (or Sunday if they are open).
Falcona – Hi, Just to let you know departure will have to be 10:50am local as Manchester is busy on arrival and can only fit us in then. Does SM, need a transfer on arrival in Manchester or will she be picked up?
Client – Thats fine, she will need a taxi, if could order one for her that would be great. Pet passports being done right now, covid test booked for Sunday & day 2 & 8 tests waiting at home, will send through as we get them.
DAY OF THE FLIGHT
On the day of the flight our passengers were met by the handling staff and directed to the lounge, where their passport details were checked and verified.
Our passenger only had a couple of small cases and they were loaded onto the aircraft by the crew. After a few minutes they were escorted by the pilots and handling staff to their aircraft.
On their arrival our passengers were met by the handling agent staff in Manchester. Bags unloaded and taken straight to chauffeur Mercedes V Class.
In the reception the pets had their microchipped checked and the documents checked by the pet company. This took less than five minutes and our passengers were on their way home.
