What Are Empty Leg Charter Flights?
Frequently, aircraft charter flights are booked in one-way segments. With many aircraft returning back to their home base, these one-way flights create trips that have no passengers on them. These are called empty legs. For example, if a jet charter is booked from Tampa to Miami, the private plane will return back to its base in Tampa after dropping off passengers in Miami. That flight can be purchased at a heavily discounted rate. Of course, unlike with booking a typical retail private jet charter, you do not always have the flexibility to travel when you want. If your schedule permits flexibility, empty legs can be a perfect way to flying private to common destinations at a fraction of the price.
How Much Are Empty Leg Flights?
This price can vary based on many variables. One factor includes whether the empty leg is international. Some international fees can create higher pricing than if the trip was domestic. Another factor is the type of aircraft. Our Cherokee Six offers empty legs, at times, for as low as $500 for the entire aircraft. On short-notice, an empty leg can be purchased for as low as any ticket booked on a commercial flight. Odyssey Airways once sold four seats on our King Air B200 from Key West to Tampa for less than $250 per seat.
