Manchester to Algarve on a Citation XLS

Falcona organised a private jet charter flight on a Cessan Citation XLS super light jet for a group of seven people including friends and family to the Algarve, Portugal.

They wanted a week away in the sun, originally planned to fly to Spain however due to quarantine measures on return to UK our clients decided to go to Portugal. This was for a client who had got in touch with us after following us on Facebook for a while.

After sending our passengers the quotes for Faro, we let them know that it’s possible to fly there instead of Malaga. There was an additional cost for them to fly to Faro, but they were able to use the same aircraft as originally planned.

The flexibility of private jet charter is one of the main benefits of flying private. They departed at the times they preferred.

Documents – I was filling in the passenger and noticed there is 1 passenger who’s birthday was on the same day of the flight, so we arranged for a cake to be put on the aircraft as a little surprise.

We also noted that one of the passengers, under aged with a different last name than the others. Also 2 under aged passenger possibly without their parents, but with a relative, so we arranged a letter from their parents to confirm it was fine for them to travel.

Agreement – If you can complete the DocuSign to secure the aircraft for those dates, soon as possible be appreciated. We also sent our clients passenger locator form and health forms to fill out prior to their departure.

Transfers – Let me know the address to book the transfer in Faro.  Flight brief and health forms to follow. We also organised a transfer for passengers on their arrival to where they were staying for the week. They paid direct either cash/credit card.
