Featured Empty Leg Flights – Charter Price For Leg Deals

What’s An Empty Leg Flight?

Empty legs are flights with pre-defined departures and destinations. It’s a common occurrence when a jet is flying back to its home base or from point A to point B with no passengers after completing a charter leg or preparing for one. These flights are also sometimes referred to as “dead-heads,” “repositioning legs,” and “ferry flights.” Utilize on-demand charter companies like ours when booking. Typically, one-way flights offer different aircraft for each leg at the best price. Empty leg prices are the cheapest typically for private aviation flights. Commercial flights do not compare to the number of departure airports for private jet flights. A private pilot flying a jet can land in smaller more remote airports that are not serviced by commercial airlines. This allows passengers to reach their final destination more quickly and with less hassle.

While so-called “walk-up” prices on certain carriers tend to be higher than advance promotional fares, particularly in domestic sectors, this simply isn’t always a set rule. In fact, as you’re about to see, it can be possible to score cheap same-day flights, depending on where and what airline you’re flying. By being flexible on your travel plans you could save up to 75% on the cost of a conventional private jet charter. Perfect for short notice leisure trips, they are the best value option to fly. Operators will often reduce dead mileage by starting or finishing the first or last service of the day, or shift, at a garage along the route, a so-called part service or part route. Dead mileage may also be reduced by the operation of routes specifically timed and routed to facilitate bus movements rather than the passenger need. Often changing routes slightly and ensuring high on time performance can greatly increase the useful time-to-dead-mileage ratio for both crew and vehicles.

Top Factors For Empty Leg Flights:

  1. Part Service or Part Route: Starting or finishing the first or last service of the day at a garage along the route allows operators to minimize dead mileage. By strategically positioning these starting and ending points, operators can reduce the distance traveled without passengers, thus optimizing resource utilization.
  2. Route Optimization: Operators may adjust routes slightly to minimize dead mileage while still meeting passenger demand. This optimization involves analyzing travel patterns, identifying high-demand areas, and adjusting routes accordingly to ensure efficient service delivery.
  3. Timed and Routed Services: Implementing routes specifically timed and routed to facilitate bus movements rather than solely focusing on passenger demand can help reduce dead mileage. By aligning schedules and routes to minimize downtime and maximize operational efficiency, operators can optimize the use of vehicles and crew.
  4. High On-Time Performance: Ensuring high on-time performance is essential for reducing dead mileage. By adhering to schedules and minimizing delays, operators can increase the effective time-to-dead-mileage ratio for both vehicles and crew, thereby maximizing productivity and minimizing inefficiencies.

Overall, a combination of these strategies allows operators to effectively manage dead mileage, optimize resources, and enhance the overall efficiency of public transportation services.
