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 CJ3, Citation XLS and Embraer Phenom 300.

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 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.


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. We recommend that you 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.

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 local.

Entry requirements to Spain

Entry to Spain

From 2 July, the Spanish government requires all arrivals to Spain from the UK to present on entry one of the following: a negative COVID-19 test; or proof of vaccination. See Testing and vaccination requirements for arrivals from the UK for details.

Further requirements and entry restrictions may also apply if:

All passengers entering Spain are still required to complete a pre-travel declaration form. See Arrival by air or sea

Some travel restrictions and testing requirements are in place for international transit through Spanish airports by passengers on flights departing from the UK. See Air transit

Testing and vaccination requirements for arrivals from the UK

From 2 July 2021, the Spanish government requires all arrivals to Spain from the UK (excluding children under the age of 12 years old) to present on entry one of the following:

  • documentation certifying that you have undertaken a COVID-19 nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT – e.g. PCR, TMA, LAMP or NEAR) within 72 hours prior to arrival in Spain and tested negative. Antigen tests are only accepted in certain limited circumstances as outlined in section ‘k’ of the ‘Entry requirements for entry in Spain from third countries’ on the Spanish Ministry of Health ‘Travel and COVID-19’ page (see information on limited exceptions below).
  • proof of being fully vaccinated at least 14 days prior to arrival in Spain (date(s) of vaccination must be specified), with a vaccine authorised by the European Medicines Agency or by the World Health Organisation

Documents can be in either English, Spanish, French or German and in paper or electronic format. All documents must specify the name and surname of the passenger.

Spain will accept the UK’s solutions to demonstrate your COVID vaccination status. Your NHS appointment card from vaccination centres is not designed to be used as proof of vaccination and should not be used to demonstrate your vaccine status.


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.

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.

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 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.
