empty legs


What is Empty legs?

The term “Empty legs” is literally translated as "return or empty flight". This is what aircraft flights without passengers are called in aviation. It happens for three reasons:

  • The client orders a private plane in one direction. That is, the plane flies back empty;
  • Airlines move aircraft between airports based on their own logistics;
  • The client orders a plane to a certain airport. In this case, the business jet flies to the starting point of the lease without passengers.

Return and technical flights allow you to take on board any number of passengers, based on the capacity of the aircraft.

In fact, Empty Legs differs from a standard private flight only in the fact that the planes take off at a pre-planned time and date. The level of service inherent in business aviation remains on board, pets and luggage can also be taken to the cabin. In some cases, you can also agree with the airline to postpone the departure to a more convenient time for passengers. Operators try to meet customers’ needs, especially if the situation allows it.




How does the aeroplane rental by the Empty Legs system work?

Employees of Private Jets UK, responsible for the direction of Last minute private jet flights, update the schedule of aircraft flying under this scheme daily. Therefore, the website always presents an up-to-date schedule. If you want to find a suitable business jet, then you need:

  1. View the flight schedule on the website and submit a request by phone or by filling out the online form;
  2. Wait for the operator to call back. It usually takes no more than 10-15 minutes. The consultant will tell you about all possible options and, if possible, will send a list of offers to the mail;
  3. Choose a suitable flight. After that, the flight consultant will acquaint you with all the nuances of payment, ticket registration and departure;
  4. Book Empty legs. At this stage, you can choose additional services provided when renting business jets.

After confirming the application, each passenger is assigned a personal air broker responsible for a comfortable flight. The personal assistant can be asked any questions of interest round the clock.

The cost of Empty legs flights

Renting an aircraft under the Empty legs system involves significant discounts compared to renting an entire plane. They range from 20 to 80%.

The cost depends on:

  • Flight distances;
  • Business Jet class;
  • Number of passengers on board;
  • Other technical issues.

It should be understood that discounts on aircraft flying under the Empty legs scheme do not affect the quality of service. Passengers receive all the same privileges as travellers who rent planes for sole use. Of course, the empty legs scheme is most beneficial to the air carrier, since it can cover part of the costs of transporting the aircraft. However, passengers who have chosen this way of moving can always count on a high level of comfort and service for an adequate price.

Comparison of Empty legs and Jet Sharing

You can fly a business jet at the lowest possible cost by choosing another direction - Jet Sharing. This is what they call a partial rental of an airplane. Both alternative travel schemes are popular not only among middle-income passengers. Large businessmen who have a flexible schedule and prefer not to overpay also try to get on such flights.

There are differences between these two schemes of an economical flight, although they are not too significant. Jet Sharing involves sharing the total cost of renting a plane between all participants of the flight. The more seats are purchased, the cheaper the flight will cost for each participant.

Empty Legs are return flights of an aircraft already paid for by a previous customer. The air carrier sells tickets for such flights at a discount which it sets independently. Another difference between Jet Sharing and Empty Legs is that in the first case, the plane will take off only if most of the seats are rented, i.e. there will be fellow travellers. However, return flights to the destination will fly, even if there is not a single passenger on board.


jet sharing


Is it possible to fly with the Empty Legs scheme in two directions?

Initially, return flights were possible only in one direction, that is, to the airport of the plane. Today, the number of requests for flights under this scheme is constantly increasing, so business aviation is looking for opportunities that allow the client to fly comfortably and at a minimum cost in any direction.

Private Jets UK in most cases helps its customers to find return flights regardless of the date and destination of the route. We can arrange Last-minute private jet flights in both directions, since:

  • The bases used by the company has hundreds of business jets regularly rented for flights to Europe, Asia, and the regions of Russia. This means that the number of return flights is huge, and data about them are always in the database;
  • We are constantly improving the company's logistics, which allows us to develop the most convenient flight schedule for customers;
  • We can arrange connecting flights. Transferring to another business jet at the airport does not negatively affect the level of service.

Different types of business jets are often selected for Empty Legs in two directions. However, all the aircraft used in business aviation are distinguished by a high level of security, a comfortable and spacious cabin and the possibility of ordering additional services.

Is it possible to order Empty legs on a specific date?

Empty planes fly back according to a pre-planned schedule. The schedule of current offers can always be viewed on our company's website. If there is no suitable option for you, then you can leave a request at any time, in which you will need to specify the direction and the desired departure date.

Private Jets UK air brokers are interested in ensuring that customers who have applied to the company are satisfied with the quality of services, so they will be able to find an opportunity to organize a flight according to a scenario that suits the client. If necessary, we can move the scheduled date of the return flight by a few hours, or a longer period of time, if the private plane involved, has no further flights. In any case, we are always ready to negotiate with the owners of business jets and find a compromise solution.

Documents required for the flight

If you are planning a flight to foreign countries, then you will need a passport. You will also need a visa in some countries.

How to pay for a flight and refund money for a failed flight

Payment for the aircraft lease is carried out after the signing of the contract. You can deposit cash or make a wire transfer. In some situations, an invoice is more convenient, but in any case, our company allows the client to choose the payment method that is more profitable for him/her.

If the scheduled flight is canceled at the client’s request, the funds won’t be returned in full. This is quite understandable since certain costs for the organization of the flight were already on the part of the air broker. However, our company tries to make sure that the client loses as little as possible. In those situations, when the lease is canceled due to our fault, which fortunately happens extremely rarely, the funds are returned in full.

You can find out all the conditions for renting business jets by phone or by sending a request to our company's email.
