Manchester to Malaga on Citation XLS

Falcona organised a one way private jet charter flight from Manchester to Malaga for a family of five and their pet Doberman on a Citation XLS.

Once we had the enquiry we sent a couple of suitable aircraft quotes to the client. It was a choice between the Cessna Citation CJ2 and the Hawker 400XP.

Not all charter aircraft allow pets onboard, so using our professional database of aircraft we were quickly able to source jets that allow pets. With it being a large dog we some aircraft operators have a strict weight and size limit.

For added comfort we went with a super light jet such as the Citation XLS, Embraer and the Phenom 300, due to them being more spacious and the passengers were taking up to seven large cases. Smaller aircraft were not as suitable for our passengers.


Once everything was booked and payment was made by the client, we organised for our clients to drive there car up to the aircraft for a swift departure and a few pictures.

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.

Bags loaded onto the aircraft. After a few minutes they were escorted by the pilots and handling staff to their aircraft and took some pictures before boarding the plane.


We wish to inform you that the aircraft is positioning in from London Luton Airport and will arrive in Manchester at 09:30. The Aircraft is scheduled to arrive in Malaga at 17:27 local time.

Anyone who has not completed this form electronically via the Spain Travel Health website or app, may submit it in paper format prior to boarding.


The Cessna Citation XLS is a passenger favourite, it can accommodate up to eight people. With its’ spacious cabin and large leather seats, the aircraft has a reputation for comfort. 

Truly expands your journey and delivers the utmost value for a super light jet. Great comfort and cost effective. It’s ideal for short charter flights around Europe.

The aircraft seats up to 8 people, in a good size cabin for a super light jet. We recommend this aircraft for up to 6 or 7  people for maximum comfort.

It’s a great choice for short and medium haul flights.

The XLS+ cabin adds LED lighting, 110V outlets, optional Wi-Fi, slightly wider seats, and refreshed styling with a new color pallet.

But the cabin’s special sauce remains constant: seating for up to nine passengers in a space that measures 18.5 feet long, 5.7 feet tall (in the trenched center aisle), and 5.7 feet wide, yielding 461 cubic feet

A two-place divan opposite the cabin door or a side-facing single seat and extra cabin closet. The forward cabin features a club-four grouping of slide/swivel single seats with fold-down outboard armrests and a foldout sidewall table for each half club.

The sidewall ledges contain short cupholders, storage for small snacks, cabin-management controls, and plug-ins for video monitors. Two additional single seats are behind the club-four grouping, albeit with less legroom and limited recline.

The aft lav features an externally serviceable belted potty and a small hanging wardrobe closet. To make your flight even more comfortable, we offer a well-stocked minibar. There are always hot and cold drinks on board, as well as many types of alcohol and perfectly prepared catering.

The XLS+ also offers class-leading baggage space. Skiing or golfing or other sporting equipment comfortably fits in the large hold beside regular luggage.
