Empty legs are flights which are scheduled to fly without passengers; the operator needs to re-position its aircraft so will often offer cheaper prices in order to fill the aircraft. As it’s a trip the plane has to make, regardless of whether it contains any passengers, it is a cost-effective way to hire a private jet, with up to 75% off the original charter price. The exact price depends on the route and the operator, but some can be close to airline prices, particularly when compared to premium seat airline fares.
There is less flexibility booking an empty leg as opposed to scheduling your own flight, but if you aren’t restricted by travelling at a set time then it can be an affordable way of enjoying luxury travel.
