What do I need to look out for when booking an empty leg flight?
Empty leg flights are a fantastic way to fly on private aircraft or private jets and it is the most cost-effective way to travel in style, luxury and comfort. Empty leg flights will be scheduled around the client who is paying for the full price chartering the private jet for their leg, therefore empty leg flights actually benefit from having exact departure and arrival destinations and timings. These scheduled dates and times eliminate the spontaneous nature of private jet travel that most clients are used to or, require as part of their lifestyle.
If it is essential that you need to be in a certain place at a certain time for a meeting or an appointment, it is possible that an empty leg flight might not be for you and you would benefit more from booking a private charter. As you will be paying a significantly reduced rate for the private aircraft, the empty leg jet will be flying in from another destination before you board, therefore your flight times will actually depend on when the aircraft lands, is fuelled, flight plans filed and is ready to depart again.
Flexibility is essential when you are booking an empty leg flight. This is because the timings of the flight are dictated by the original customer’s flight requirements so the actual final departure times might not be available to you until just before your empty leg private jet is due to depart. It is possible that with empty leg flights, your flight may be cancelled if the original customer decides to cancel their private jet flight which will leave you having to make last-minute travel arrangements. If you are a passenger where precise timings are of huge importance when booking a private charter flight, then empty leg flights might not be for you.
