"Overall, the service provided by Unique Jets, the crew, and the staff at both Farnborough and Porto airports was exemplary. The Citation M2 proved to be the perfect aircraft for such transfers. Admittedly, it was a bit challenging in strong winds, but that's a trade-off with lighter aircraft, I suppose! I would undoubtedly opt for Unique Jets' service in the future."

Ashton Coates

"Die Challenger 300 ist ein hervorragendes Flugzeug. Unique Jets hat uns vorzüglich betreut, und die Besatzungen auf beiden Flügen waren außerordentlich gut."
