Book your Empty Leg Flight on a Private Jet
Save up to 75% with private
jet charter discount offers.
If your schedule is flexible, you can book an empty leg flight on our private jets for a fraction of the regular price. But what is actually an empty leg flight? How much does it cost? And how can you find an empty leg according to your travel plans?
What is an
empty leg flight?
All private flights have two legs; the flight that gets customers to their selected destination and the return flight to home base or the next customer flight. The latter is called an empty leg, and it is a flight that operates free of passengers.
An empty leg is a repositioning flight on a fixed date and itinerary, usually to pick up passengers who have booked a private jet.
Savvy and flexible travellers can take advantage of empty legs, as they are offered a significant discount compared to regular fares. It’s a typical win-win situation, for you to have the opportunity to save money while flying private, for us maximising our capacity, and for the environment as well.
Suppose you are flexible with times and itineraries. In that case, an empty leg charter is a more unexpensive option for a glamorous once-in-a-lifetime private jet experience or even as an alternative to other means of transport, like regular flights with commercial airlines.
How much does it cost to book an empty leg flight?
The cost of an empty leg flight in Europe depends on various factors, such as distance, airport landing fees, number of passengers and additional baggage they travel with.
You can save up to 75% at a rough estimate compared to regular rates for private jet charters. An empty leg between London Biggin Hill and Paris Le Bourget will cost you around €2,000 on average, for example, whether you travel alone or as a group of four passengers.

What is a rerouted
You cannot find an empty leg flight that matches your itinerary? Our team might have a Plan B for you. We search our flight-plan to check if there are other nearby options, according to your itinerary. More than often, it’s worth organising to reroute an empty leg, making an additional stop
to pick you up or drop you off at your chosen destination. Since the flight will incur extra expenses, a rerouted empty leg will have an additional cost. However, a rerouted empty leg is still much cheaper than the regular fare for a private jet charter.

How is the experience different from private jet booking?
You get the luxury and comfort of a private dedicated flight. Our crew will look after your comfort and peace of mind. You can still arrive minutes before your flight, but you have to adhere to a schedule as these flights cannot be delayed.
The flight does not usually include a menu with catering or includes limited catering. We will usually have a light snack and soft beverages. However, you can perfectly arrange for the full catering experience, and we will make it happen.
Most private airliners will have no problem cancelling your flight at any time. We will make sure that you do not have to postpone your plans and go through the downfall of a cancelled flight.
