New Flight Charters, a nationwide leader in private jet charter since 2004, announces the largest public listing of empty legs in the jet charter industry. The company now is listing over 150 upcoming and available empty legs from U.S. private charter aircraft.
Also known as dead-heads or ferry flights, empty legs are flights without passengers on board when an aircraft needs to be moved. Often a private charter jet will have empty leg flights associated with an existing flight schedule- when it needs to move to another location to start a charter, or return back to base after completing a charter, or the same situations for its owner flights.
These empty legs, when an aircraft needs to fly a certain direction, can be a unique opportunity for a low-cost jet charter. Aircraft can be re-routed to accommodate a charter flight need. For example, an empty leg from Houston to Denver can be rerouted for a Dallas to Aspen charter at a much lower than normal cost.
Rates can vary since each empty leg charter is unique, but pricing is typically 30-50% lower than standard charter quotes.
Examples from the current Empty Legs Listing of 150 flights include:·
- Jackson Hole, WY – Denver, CO, Hawker 400XT light jet, December 19, $6,800
- Boca Raton, FL – Teterboro, NJ, Embraer Legacy 600 large jet, December 21, $15,450
- Sun Valley, ID – Los Angeles, CA, Phenom 300 light jet, December 22, $6,900
- New York, NY – Palm Beach, FL, Citation CJ3 light jet, December 27, $10,600
- Los Angeles, CA – Aspen, CO, Gulfstream IV large jet, December 31, $13,950
“When an empty leg matches up with a flight need, there is no better value in private flying,” commented Rick Colson, New Fight Charters’ president. “Working with the largest charter availability in the industry we use a variety of tools to source ideal aircraft options for any given charter request.”
Floating Fleets are a second attractive and lower cost solution. A fast-growing option in private jet charter is utilizing a non-based Floating Fleet aircraft for better one-way pricing, point-to-point. These can be available in all parts of the U.S., for all types of flying, from shorter one-hour flights to coast-to-coast and international flights. Floating Fleet aircraft do not have to return to a base, and thus can be more cost-effective charter options.
334 floating fleet jets are available nationwide through New Flight Charters; all sizes from light jets to ultra long-range jets such as the Global 5000. Charter quotes for these floating fleet aircraft are typically 15-30% less than traditional based aircraft.
Any requested charter need can be fully customized for aircraft, size, type, and amenities along with desired ratings or registrations from ARGUSÒ, Wyvern Ltd.Ò, IS-BAO or the Air Charter Safety Foundation.
