What are Empty Leg Flights?

Even some of the most seasoned private jet charter travelers aren’t too familiar with Empty Leg Flights.  This term has been used in the private air travel business for decades to describe empty one-way flights that need to position to pick up passengers before continuing on (with passengers on board) to their final destination.  Flight operators do their very best to plan their schedules without having to fly empty legs, as there is a substantial cost associated with traveling without passengers on board.  Unfortunately for them, it can be difficult to find passengers who only want to fly one-way (especially on shorter flights) so they often end up offering these flights at highly discounted rates to recoup some of their operating costs.
Empty Legs
As the private travel industry has grown, more flight operators had more of these empty legs available for passengers who need a flight in just one direction.  An entire industry led by ElJet has been established to help flight operators find passengers for their empty leg flights.  Often times travelers can find jet charter flights for half of what it would normally cost to charter them independently by taking advantage of these one-way flights.
For just a bit more than the cost of a first class airline ticket, you might be able to find a private jet rental to your next destination.  These empty legs, or deadhead flights, are typically booked last minute, with just days or hours until takeoff, allowing passengers to jump on a private jet.  Luckily for those who live in major air travel hubs, you might be able to find one-way flights in both directions if you know where to look.

Finding Empty Leg Flights

Some cities see more private air travel traffic than others.  Popular hubs such as Teterboro, Los Angeles, Miami, Las Vegas and the islands of Hawaii often have empty leg flights flying in and out every day, as they drop off or pick up their next client. For travelers who live in or around those cities, it can be down right easy to find empty leg flights if you contact ElJet.
ElJet has been a leader in the private jet industry for over half a decade, and has developed strong relationships with flight operators all around the world.  These connections allow us to be among the first to know of available empty leg flights.  Our clients have taken advantage of these amazing deals on one-way trips, and been able to find another empty leg for their return jaunt as well!
