Jetting a German actor to a TV shoot
In June 2021, a German entertainment management company asked us to help fly a big-name actor and his partner from Hamburg to Munich, where he was shooting a television commercial.
The celebrity passenger had requested an Embraer Phenom 3000 that exceeded the client’s budget, so we needed to find a more cost-effective alternative that still met his requirements.
Route: Hamburg > Munich > Hamburg
Aircraft: Cessna Citation CJ4
We sourced a Cessna Citation CJ4 light jet for the domestic journey, as it’s a similar size to the Phenom 3000 but costs less to charter. The actor was happy with this alternative solution and it was priced within the management company’s budget, so we booked the aircraft and ensured all the necessary paperwork was processed ahead of the flight’s departure.
The Finer Details
Rapid Response: Our experienced team was able to find a viable solution for the client within 30 minutes of the request coming in.
Flexible Solution: We were flexible with the timings of the return flight in case the shoot finished early or overran – something that wouldn’t have been possible with a scheduled service.
