What Are Empty Leg Charters?

Empty leg charters are private charter flights that are booked by a customer to drop off passengers and return to their base empty. It is very common for private charter flights to be booked in one-way segments or in round-trips but with the passengers spending a lot of time away where the aircraft would return to and from its home base empty. For example, Odyssey Airways, and FAA-certified air carrier and air charter company in Tampa, FL had the following empty legs available in the month of July which offered private flights to and from Tampa to:

  • Palm Beach International Airport (PBI)
  • Miami International Airport (MIA)
  • Key West International Airport (EYW)
  • Jacksonville Executive Airport (CRG)
  • Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL)
  • Marathon - Florida Keys International Airport (MTH)
  • Ocean Reef Club Airport (OCA)
  • Asheville Regional Airport (AVL)
  • Lake Oconee / Greene County Airport (37J)
  • Boca Raton Airport (BCT)

Empty leg pricing can make private air charter to Miami, for example, even cheaper and more convenient than the airlines. Check out our page for up-to-date and available empty leg flights.

Private Air Charters Equal Convenience

It's important to take advantage of the convenience of private jet charter services. The airlines only service about 2.7% of all airports in the United States!

If you wanted to visit Disney World, for example, your only options for airline service would be Orlando International Airport or Tampa International Airport. After you arrive, you would still be about an hour from Disney or other theme parks in the Orlando-area. Did you know that there are about a dozen airports that we can offer charter flights to that are even closer? Not to mention, these are almost always cheaper to operate to which means they are more convenient and more affordable.

With a private airport located at the club, private jet charters is the only way to land, literally, at your ultimate destination.

Finally, if you wanted to escape the heat and visit the mountains of North Carolina, the closest airport to Grandfather Mountain, Linville Ridge, Banner Elk, or Boone are Charlotte-Douglas International Airport or Asheville Regional Airport.
