Empty Leg Flights
Jets are chartered on a daily basis, many are
for one-way arrangements whereby clients
hire services for delivery or pick-up. Hence,
a jet flown for such an arrangement ends
up with an empty leg on its return trip or on
route respectively. Since hefty costs are
incurred the moment a plane takes off, it is
therefore in the interest of the charter
company to recoup costs where possible. Otherwise, it is equivalent to setting a wad of
bank notes aflame. By advertising the availability of such flights in papers or online sites, the
objective is to attract business from last-minute travelers or cargo shipments where
applicable. As prices for hire also tend to be much less than regular chartered flights,
popular routes are quickly snapped up. We get more info on Empty Leg Flights.

form of transportation, also known as a

inconsistencies. Flight itineraries are
dependent on the primary parties who
charter the planes. If their plans change,

may not be obligated to replace cancelled flights thus adding another level of
With this in mind, it is ideal to figure out which type of charter suits one best. If keeping
costs low is a matter of priority with time being a flexible element, choosing this sort of
travel is probably sufficient. However, if the tables are turned with time being a deciding
factor, it may be better to spend a little more in order to secure a confirmed date and time
of travel instead of opting for a deadhead flight subject to change beyond one's control.
