PRIVATE JET CHARTERS AT A FRACTION OF THE REGULAR PRICE
When Air Charter Service has a one-way private jet charter, the aircraft is sometimes empty when it repositions back to its base, or when it continues on to another location. These are known within the industry as ‘empty leg’ flights.
These charter flights can be booked for an extraordinarily low cost, as the aircraft was scheduled to fly empty anyway. So, for example, if a one-way charter flight is going from Sydney to Brisbane and then repositioning to Melbourne for its next flight, this would be the ideal opportunity to book a flight on this aircraft at a substantial discount. An empty leg flight can sometimes be discounted by as much as 75% off the cost of a regular charter flight.
What you need to know
Empty leg flights can save you a lot of money and are a great way to travel by private jet charter if you are on a budget, but there are limitations that come with them.
While the cost of an empty leg flight is often too good to pass up, they can be a bit of a moveable feast – as they are subject to change or cancellation if the original passenger changes their route or dates for travel. Being flexible at short notice is a must if you plan to travel on empty leg charters, but they can also be a lifesaver in the case of last-minute charter solutions. Knowing where to look is also an important factor in being successful in traveling by empty leg flights.
The routes for empty leg flights are also predetermined by the aircraft having to travel to somewhere specific, so finding a flight that is going where you want to go can be hard and you may have to combine the flight with an airline ticket in order to get where you want to go – keeping in mind that empty leg flights are also one way flights.
