Repositioning flights operating flying to or from their point of origin without passengers are known as “empty legs”. At a significantly reduced cost, air charter travelers can enjoy the same benefits and convenience of a private jet by booking an empty leg. In this manner, a private jet returning to base for repositioning after a one-way flight can be offered at a highly discounted rate in comparison to conventional prices. Our specialists will help you find suitable empty leg charter flights options and rent aircraft with the most favorable conditions.

What is an empty leg charter flight?
For private aviation, an empty leg is a system of flights that reduces the cost of a charter without sacrificing quality. To put it simply, it is a return flight that flies empty to its destination. The use of an empty leg flight is beneficial to everyone, as it allows for a significant reduction in price and a pleasant surprise for passengers. To find out more about the available offers you can contact our consultants.
How much do empty leg flights cost?
Prices for empty leg flights vary depending on several factors, just like any other charter flight. Among them, are the range of the flight, the type of aircraft, and more. Generally, the prices are 50%-75% lower than the prices of a regular charter. The dead leg flights service is relevant for passengers who make frequent flights and have the opportunity to coordinate their schedule with the time of the flight. Specials on empty leg flights appear as close to the departure date as possible.
What are the specifics of an empty leg?
Booking a private flight using the empty leg system can significantly reduce the financial cost of organizing a one-way charter flight. Besides that, all important aspects such as safety level and service quality remain the same, as in a usual private trip. If one of the flights coincides with your proposed route, our consultants can help you with quick flight arrangements.
Is there a difference in the quality of service on empty legs?
No, the high standards of business aviation are true for all flight options, including empty leg. So the service remains at the highest level, but with a clear price advantage. You can get to your destination in comfort, but consider that the empty leg does not provide the opportunity to plan your departure. We will choose the best empty leg private jet option for you, arrange additional services, and suggest how to save money on your journey.

Our consultants can help you draw up the necessary documents for an empty leg flight and the conditions of entry into the desired country.
