Manchester to Nice on Citation XLS

Falcona organised a one way private jet charter flight from Manchester to Nice, for a family of four on a Cessna Citation XLS aircraft.

Passengers were met by the handling staff and directed to the lounge, where their passport details were checked and verified.

They relaxed in the lounge having a coffee and a chat with a certain footballing legend which made their day. Shortly after the passengers were escorted by the pilots and handling staff to their aircraft and boarded their aircraft.
