Manchester to Latvia, during COVID19

Falcona organised a private jet charter flight on a Embraer Phenom 300 super-light aircraft for a passenger, who was being reunited with his family in Latvia.

Can you send us some quotes for a one way flight from Manchester to Latvia, on 6th April leaving around 10am.


We sent out a list of three suitable charter aircraft to our clients. They decided to go with Embraer Phenom 300, which is an ideal choice. It’s comfortable and has a wonderful interior, that’s spacious.

Once we had confirmation that the client wanted to book the flight, we  sent out our T&Cs for the clients to sign.

Once we received the signed T&Cs, we booked and secured the aircraft for the trip. A couple of days later we sent our our invoice and initial flight brief, with all the details.

If you can get to Signature Manchester for 10:40 local time, your captain will meet you there. Any changes please let me know soon as possible.

Operational Notes

Please be at the airport 30 minutes before scheduled departure time. If you are delayed for your scheduled departure, we kindly ask that you update Falcona.

Due to the Corona Virus pandemic, we had to confirm that the passengers had not travelled to or from any of the Category 1 areas such as China, or Italy in the past 14 days.

Operator: We cannot depart without the permission permit. Unless you agree to pay for the positioning leg in case we do not get it for your flight. Let us know how to proceed. Please note we are still waiting the approval of MOT in EVRA for our flight today.

We can’t depart for the ferry until this has been received. Ferry departure is currently planned in 30min from now from BIKF, we will have to delay this until the approval for EVRA has been received. We will keep you posted on the progress!

Please see below info from EVRA: Handling confirmed, still waiting for permission from the Ministry of Transport. Most probably tomorrow morning they will send it to us.

In case we do not receive the approval in time, please note that there could be a possible delay on the ferry, therefore also on your flight.

Also for EGCC, please confirm if the passenger is experiencing any of the following symptoms as we need to provide the FBO with a completed form:  Persistent cough,  difficulty breathing,  fever.

Just to keep you in the loop. The crew is ready, we are just standing by for the permission number by the Ministry of Transport in EVRA.

Once it is in hands, then we will depart. We will keep you posted once the AC departs from BIKF. Landing permission has been approved in the meantime!

Ferry to depart shortly (apparently there was a snow storm in Keflavik last night so our crew is picking up the handling agent with their rental car – possibly we will have a slight delay)

Passenger: When I am in Latvia I live with my family (my Latvian Wife, and 2 British-Latvian Children) in an apartment here: We are renting this property.

We also own a property. When I arrive in Latvia today, I will be self Isolating for 14 days in the following private apartment which I have arranged through air-bnb:

Although there was a slight delay, we were able to fly our client to be with his family in Latvia, to spend time with them during Covid19.


The Embraer Phenom 300 business jet has no competitors in its class in terms of size and space, both for passengers and for luggage.

Its range, speed and reliability are among the best available, while its cabin offers comfort and amenities usually found only on larger aircraft.This combination of high performance and thoughtful design makes the Phenom a uniquely capable aircraft. embraer phenom 300 interior
