Manchester to Southend on a CJ2

Falcona organised a private jet charter flight on a Cessna Citation CJ2 light jet to visit family members. Their PA initially emailed us with the request. We sourced suitable aircraft for 5 people to fly from Manchester to Southend for the day.

We sent the PA three quotes of different aircraft and prices, so that they could make an informed decision. The next day we got an email to say that they would like to book the Citation CJ2.

With that we booked the aircraft after waiting for owner approval to charter the aircraft. Approval was given within an hour so we were able to secure the aircraft for the day.

the flight was originally planned for five people however the day before departure, we were notified that only three people were travelling.

Client Review

Hi Adie
Thanks again for looking after us so well on Saturday we really enjoyed the day.
As you know my older boys missed out but I’d like to arrange another flight if we can agree a price and subject to Covid restrictions (although given we’re staying within the UK hopefully it will be okay)
There and back in a day similar take off and return times.
Could you look into it for me. Wonderful flight and special thanks to the crew. I think we could be converted!
