What is an Empty Leg?

Empty legs are private flights scheduled without any passengers on board. The flight crew will perform these flights whenever they need to re-position a plane, fly back after dropping passengers off, returning for maintenance, and other scheduling factors.

Whenever a plane flies without paying customers, owners and operators lose money. Also known as “deadheads”, these flights are most often created when a one-way is booked. The return leg is typically included in the price, and since the plane has to fly home anyway, the empty portion of the trip is marketed and sold at a steep discount.

For example: someone arranges a one-way flight from Houston to New York, and pays for the return leg back home. After flying to New York and dropping off passengers, the plane now must fly back to Houston. This creates an empty leg flight, and save private jet travelers up to 50 percent (or more) on charter costs.
