Empty leg flights are so-called positioning flights, which are relatively common in private aviation. These flights arise, for example, when a jet is routed from its home airport to the desired departure point of a charter customer or the customer has booked only a one-way flight, and the aircraft then returns to its home airport.
Advantages of an empty leg flight
Empty leg flights are often offered at very low prices, ideally for 50 percent of the normal fare. This creates a win-win situation. The airline optimises its costs by saving an empty flight and allowing customers to make big savings on their travel expenses with the same level of flight service and comfort as a regularly booked flight.
Limitations of an empty leg flight
When booking empty leg flights, you have to accept that these connections are not flexible in terms of time and are one-way flights. But especially on busy routes, it may be that there is also an Empty Leg return flight available to book. If this is not the case, the passenger has still saved costs on the total round trip package.
