Private Jet Empty Leg Charter
If you’d like the luxury and convenience of traveling via private aircraft while paying a fraction of what bizjet travel would traditionally cost, empty leg charter is the ideal solution. When individuals or companies charter a private jet only one-way, the business jet must still return to its originating destination. Returning to an airport with no paying passengers means the expense for gas, pilots, and other required items is not offset by fares. To try and recoup costs of these empty legs, private jet companies offer discounted fares for passengers traveling on these flights.
When you take advantage of empty leg charter, you’ll be saving quite a bit over a standard charter. Flying empty legs helps the charter company and in return for taking a prearranged flight, you pay less for your travel. When flying return routes, you still benefit from all the traditional advantages of taking a private aircraft. You will have the opportunity to work or rest uninterrupted and you can arrange multiple empty legs if you’d like to arrive at multiple destinations on the same day.
The drawback to flying only empty legs is the travel is already arranged. This means you can not change the day or time of the flight as you are taking advantage of a special – not chartering the plane outright. Some charter companies are flexible when it comes to the time of departure, but the jet is returning on a specific day, usually at a specific time and you are bound to that timeframe.
If your plans have some flexibility, however, this is not an issue. You are still flying in style, comfortable in luxurious surroundings. Your plane will arrive quickly and you’ll be on your way with no delays. If you fly from popular cities, you can find multiple empty legs branching throughout the country and world making it simple to travel to many areas on a single business trip without paying full price for any of the flights.
