11 Sep Book a private jet from Manchester Airport
If you’re thinking about booking a private jet to or from Manchester Airport, whether it’s for business or pleasure, here’s our quick guide to the booking process. There’s so much do see and do in Manchester and it’s a popular tourist destination.
We know that business travellers tend to book flights last minute, where as leisure travellers tend to book their holiday flights three months in advance.
Travelling for business, we can source aircraft with state-of-the-art communication services, a quiet and spacious sanctuary enabling you to fly on your own terms. Whether you wish to work, sleep, dine, or just relax, we create an environment both in the air, and on the ground, that helps you arrive prepared for business.
1. Get in touch
If you’re considering flying privately, the first step is to get in touch with us. You can phone us, email or pop into our offices at the private jet terminal in Manchester.
Tell us where you’d like to fly to and the dates of travel, how many people are travelling and your ideal departure times. We then search our professional database and compare aircraft and look for the best aircraft for your journey.
We can locate airports which are closer to you and your arrival destination – since private jets have access to a larger number of airports than commercial airlines. Over 1,200 airports in Europe alone.
We will find the ideal aircraft for your trip, and come back to you with a selection of options.
2 Source aircraft
Your request will be dealt with by your dedicated member of staff, who have detailed knowledge of aircraft. We have access to hundreds of private jets worldwide, through our professional database.
We will source a number of private jets that match your needs and place these into one document with multiple photos of each aircraft.
Our relationship with our closest operators puts us in a position to find the best possible aircraft. All our chartered aircraft are new with many boasting the latest in safety and on-board amenities.
Once you’ve received these and are happy with the options, you simply need to let us know which one you would like to book.
3 How To Pay
We require pre-payment for all flights and funds to be cleared prior to your flight. We accept payment via bank transfer and most major credit and debit cards. After letting us know which private jet you’ve chosen for your trip, we will return to the operator for confirmation of the flight.
This can be confirmed within the hour, as we generally charter aircraft that don’t need owner approval. These flights can take longer to confirm.
We will then send out your invoice which is all inclusive ( minus any out of hour charges, wi-fi) and your flight brief.
Once this is completed, the aircraft is reserved and charter agreements will be exchanged. Payment dates and details will be outlined in your charter invoice.
From there you will need to send us passport details of all those travelling prior to your departure. Upon completion, your private jet is booked and the flight ready to go ahead!
Booking a bit further ahead for your holiday? Why not spread the cost with a deposit. Available for bookings made more than 90 days before departure.
Just 25% of the value is required upfront to secure your flight. The remaining balance is due 30 days before departure.
4 Day Of Your Flight
On the day of departure, you simply need to arrive at the airport 15 minutes before your flight is due to take off. We still see customers arriving at the airport an hour before the flight! There’s no need.
On your arrival you will be met by a member of staff from Falcona and the handling agents, who will take you to the VIP lounge. Check your passports and take your luggage to the aircraft.
Everything will be taken care of to ensure a smooth journey, so you simply need to board and enjoy the experience.
