10 Sep Manchester to Mallorca on Challenger 850
Falcona organised a one way private jet charter flight from Manchester to Mallorca for a group of two families on a Bombardier Challenger 850 heavy jet.
The aircraft positioned into Manchester from London Stansted Airport, on the morning of the flight. On arrival the aircraft got fuel, catering and and was then set up for security screening.

If you are aged 18 or over and have not received a booster, but have received two doses of a two-dose vaccine or one dose of a single-dose vaccine approved for use by Spain, then at least 14 days and no more than 270 days must have passed since your last dose, to qualify as fully vaccinated.
