Empty Leg Flights

For frequent travellers accustomed to luxury private charter flights, empty leg flights open up a wide assortment of travel options or spur-of-the-moment trips.

You have likely heard of this hidden gem in passing, but what exactly does it mean?
Simply put, private charter empty leg flights are flights at a discounted rate that allow for short-notice travel in luxury. And unlike commercial flights, empty leg passengers are rewarded for their savvy rather than penalized with increased costs and cramped quarters.

There’s a little more to it though, and here is a break down the specifics.

What is an empty leg flight?

A common occurrence with private charter jets, empty leg flights (or simply “empty legs”) typically take place on the return of a booked one-way flight. For one-way flights, the charter jet leaves to meet its next passenger or returns to its home airport, and this presents an ideal opportunity to snag a comfortable, cost-effective seat.

Although empty leg flights can offer flexibility as an option to take an unplanned flight, it is important to note that they follow a pre-established schedule. If you need a flight specifically tailored to your schedule, we recommend setting up a private charter flight with us.

Who are empty leg flights designed for?

The short answer to this question is everyone in search of a convenient, economical approach to travelling in luxury and leisure. Empty legs are also the perfect nudge in the right direction if you are set on a vacation but cannot pinpoint where to go.

Typical empty leg flyers are:

  • On the lookout for a great flight at an equally great price
  • Taking a short-notice trip or a spontaneous vacation
  • Business professionals or entrepreneurs who must arrive at their destination quickly
  • Travelers who are always ready for an adventure and have a taste for breathtaking locales
