There is a taboo, you could even say, a stereotype, that fervently clings to the private jet industry. It is one of inaccessibility; of being aloof, unapproachable, and distant. Something to dream about but that never enters the mind as a real possibility.

This koala-bear grasp on the minds of travelers is not without reason. For years, decades even, most media coverage that involved a private jet was likely to also include celebrities, royalty, or the amazingly wealthy who become famous in their own right for just such luxuries.

The world is a changing place however, and the accessibility of private jet charter has expanded rapidly. Private business owners, corporations, and other professionals who rely on travel, are finding that owning or chartering a private jet is an investment that pays more than its fair share in dividends.

The Perks of the Empty Leg

The availability of the empty leg is a great example of how the availability of private jets is rapidly expanding.

An empty leg is a trip that a jet is required to take but for which there are no passengers scheduled. This often happens when an aircraft needs to return to base after a mission, or is in route to a specific mission from it’s base.

The benefit of these legs, also known as a “One-Way” is that, if you are not on a tight schedule, it is possible to enjoy all the efficiency, luxury, and pleasure of a private flight, at a lower cost.

Unlike a trip that is based entirely on your own scheduling needs, the empty leg offers less-flexibility. However, as an elegant and private means to get from here to there, these flights are the way to go.
