The term Empty Leg refers to the segment (called “leg”) of a the flight on its way to pick up passengers at some destination or en route back to its home base after drop off. In both cases the aircraft carries out this segment of the flight when it is empty of passengers and only the crew is on the flight deck.
These flights are significantly cheaper than the regular commercial and private flights due to the desire of the operating companies to exploit the aircraft that in any case must carry out the flight segment and thus they can receive payment. The companies are willing in many cases to sell the flight segment at a considerable reduction that can reach half the price of a regular flight.
It is important for you to know that we can also take advantage of the empty legs if they pass close by airports that you requested. Even if we need to make a small change in the aircraft’s route – the cost of the flight will be very low, and therefore it is important for us to know in advance the destinations you are interested in reaching.
It should also be noted that this type of flight does not usually have a cancellation fee. Therefore booking an empty leg, even at the last moment does not involve any monetary risk.
