Deadhead Charter Flights

The term “Deadhead” is commonly used in the charter travel industry to describe one-way flights that don’t have any passengers scheduled for the trip.  Deadhead charter flights typically occur when a flight operator needs to re-position a private jet to another city in order to pick up passengers for a trip.  Fortunately, these deadhead flights are offered at heavily discounted rates, bringing the cost of private jet travel much lower for passengers.
Also known as Empty-Leg flights, these Deadheads still cost flight operators a hefty sum of money to fly.  From paying the pilots and crew to maintenance and fuel, there are costs associated with flying whether or not passengers are on board for the trip.  In order to offset these operating expenses, flight operators sell these private jet trips at extremely low rates to recoup some of what they would be losing otherwise.
Deadhead charter flights are typically booked between a week or less in advance of the flight, once the operator knows that they cannot sell the leg for full price.  With so many private jet flights traveling around the world every day, there are quite a few to choose from if you know where to look!  Here’s the key…
