What is an empty leg?

An empty leg is the term used for a repositioning flight after a jet is used to fly to a destination.

For example if a jet is booked to fly from Sydney to Byron Bay but its next booked flight is also out of Sydney, the return trip is called an empty leg because it is unsold and therefore will return to Sydney empty.

To partially reduce the cost of these ’empty legs’ they are often sold for a fraction of their regular price.

Empty legs often come available at short notice and at a huge discount compared to the price of the originating flight while still offering all the perks of a private jet.

Which all sounds amazing but there are some drawbacks you need to be aware of.

You need some flexibility to take advantage of them as the date and time of the return leg is often fixed due to operational requirements.

If the inbound flight is moved or operational requirements change, the timing of your empty leg may also change and of course if the inbound flight is cancelled for any reason, then your empty leg will also be cancelled too.

Which can sound daunting but when you book with a reputable operator like Airly we know these things can happen and can work with you to ensure you still make your original destination.
