‘Empty leg’ – the private jet answer to airport hassle

FOR many, a holiday starts with hours of waiting around at the airport. And extra security delays for many travellers add even more time and hassle to airline flights. But what if you could step onboard your own private jet instead, for the same or even less than the price of an airline flight? PrivateFly says this can be a reality if you are prepared to be flexible and book at short notice.

Adam Twidell, CEO of PrivateFly says: ‘An empty leg comes about when a private jet is re-positioning. As the aircraft is flying empty, the owner or operator will often be happy to sell this one-way leg at a big discount – often a fraction of the full price. Europe's private jet traffic sees a significant peak in the summer, so there are many more empty leg flights available, and amazing deals to be had.

PrivateFly is integrated with more than 7,000 aircraft globally, and offers price comparison and booking services for private jet charter via its website, apps and 24-hour team. It also offers empty legs all over the world. The company says that many of these deals are open to offer, and sell for up to 75 percent discount on the usual price.

Twidell adds: ‘Private jets are usually about time-saving, not cost-saving. But if people are prepared to book last minute and travel as a group, the cost per person can be less than business class – or even low cost airlines in some cases. They are usually one-way flights and while a return flight can sometimes be matched up, others enjoy a private jet experience in one direction, and make their own way home. Private jets don't have to just be for billionaires, VIPs and rock stars.’
