Empty Legs private jet flights
Empty Legs is one of the most popular services in business aviation in Europe and Cyprus. The demand for it has been growing rapidly lately. All this is due to the most favorable cost of a flight on a private plane while maintaining the highest level of service and maintenance. Discounts on such flights often reach 50-70% of the classic flight, which is comparable in price to a flight in business class of a conventional civil aircraft.
Cyprus Private Jets Company has premium access to expanded international bases of return flights and more than 7500 business jets. Therefore, we are ready to offer customers a wide variety of charter flights on the most popular routes!
What is the essence of the service?
Empty Legs is also called a "return flight without passengers". It happens when someone orders a one-way flight on a private plane, and the liner has to return empty. For example, if a passenger from Milan plans to spend a long time in Larnaca, he will order a business jet for the Milan - Larnaca flight. After such a flight, an empty plane should return from Larnaca to its home base in Milan. Such a flight without passengers is called Empty Legs.
As for a business aviation operator or owner, returning an aircraft empty is a loss of potential profit, so they try to sell it at a discount. It happens due to the fact that the flight route is essentially fixed, but the premium service is provided in full. As for an experienced customer, this is a great option to use the services of business aviation at an excellent price. If the flight direction you are interested in coincides with the Empty Legs route at least partially, the Cyprus Private Jets air broker will adjust the final destination of the flight according to your order.
Our database of Empty Legs flights contains more than 8,700 scheduled flights for the next 6 months. Most of them occur in Europe (about 75%). However, intercontinental flights are also conducted. The data are updated daily online. The website reflects only a small part of the current offers, you can request a full list of flights from the company's managers.
Advantages for passengers
Owners of private planes offer customers substantial discounts for such flights to recoup some of their costs. Also, some operators include additional services in the cost of the flight – such as VIP catering or Internet on board. All these points are negotiated individually and depend on the specific route, date, and time of the flight.
10 main advantages of flying on the Empty Legs system:
- Customers are given the opportunity to fly on top-end private jets;
- During the flight, they are provided with the same services as business aviation passengers (i.e., top-level service);
- There is a possibility of deviations from the original route declared by the company;
- If you want to board a flight, you do not have to stand in a long queue and go through a long, tedious check-in procedure because this is done in a separate terminal for VIP passengers;
- The cost of the flight is significantly lower compared to the classic booking of a private plane;
- The flight will take place in any case, nothing can interfere with it (except weather conditions) – we guarantee the fulfillment of the operator's obligations;
- Flexible conditions for booking and paying for flights;
- The possibility of making urgent flights to dozens of popular destinations, including Cyprus;
- Due to the more affordable price, you will be able to evaluate the liners of a higher class without additional overpayments;
- Full support by a business aviation expert at all stages of the flight, 24/7.
There are only two disadvantages of the Empty Legs system:
- It will not be possible to select the model of the aircraft;
- The desired flight may not occur at a convenient time for you.
However, there are really a lot of similar offers on the market, so these disadvantages are not as significant as they may seem at first glance. Our company will be happy to help you solve the difficulties that arise and find exactly the flight that you need.
As for the time, landlords often meet customers halfway and are ready to shift the flight time by several hours in one direction or another. This is due to the fact that private flights are less in demand than regular flights, and, most likely, there is no clear deadline by which the plane should arrive at the place.
Prices and examples of flights
In each case of the "Empty Legs" flight, the airline or the owner of the aircraft independently determine the final cost of this flight. There are examples of completed flights below:

Cyprus Private Jets experts will answer all your questions and help you choose the optimal return flight. The final cost will depend on the route, date, type of aircraft, number of passengers, and the need for additional services. All these points are agreed upon at the booking stage, after which the cost of the flight will be fixed in the official contract.
Naturally, flights on which you can save money are incredibly attractive and are in demand. However, it should be borne in mind that such proposals have a number of limitations. Most often, the destinations of private planes are predetermined in advance, therefore, it is necessary to monitor information updates: whether there is a plane ready to go to empty leg flights now, and whether its final destination coincides with the city of interest to the client. The list of flights is presented both in open access and closed bases, which only air brokers have access to. This is done in the interests of security and privacy.
However, even if the endpoint of the route deviates slightly from the course of the “empty” plane, the client can always coordinate this issue with the air broker and calculate the cost of such a flight. At the same time, a part of the discount will still be valid, significantly reducing costs.
If the flight of interest is already occupied and has set off, the manager will always be happy to advise the client and offer the most profitable of the current options. Therefore, do not hesitate to call and clarify. The list of offers of business aviation includes offers that can meet the needs of any customer.
Empty Legs in two directions
Initially, the Empty Legs service was available only for a small number of passengers who accidentally found out about a particular return flight. However, today, when there are many applications, services, and messengers, many private business aviation companies have the technical and organizational capabilities to provide such services to a large number of customers.
Private jet rentals are being ordered more and more often, and there are more and more flights. It accordingly increases the number of Empty return flights. To date, customers have the opportunity to book Empty Legs flights in two directions, i.e., you can find out in advance when the flight will be performed from point A to point B and then pick up the nearest possible flight from point B to point A. All questions about the search, coordination, and organization will be taken over by the manager of Cyprus Private Jets. Thus, if specific dates for flights do not constrain you, we will help you make a private business jet flight on the most favorable terms. You can submit a request in any way convenient for you – on the website, by phone, by e-mail, or in WhatsApp messenger.

The company's unique database contains more than 8,900 business jets of various types and classes: from small models to VIP liners. We are always ready to offer our customers favorable booking conditions and help them compare the most interesting flight options.
You should note that combined flights are very popular with our customers. A part of the route takes place on a private plane and the rest of the way – on a business aviation helicopter. We are also always ready to make a difficult route for you, where most of the way will be completed with the help of an Empty Legs flight, and a private plane will be booked for the rest of the way as part of a classic rental. All this adds flexibility and allows customers to reduce a significant part of the costs of flights. We have got 14 years of successful work in business aviation, we have accumulated extensive experience in organizing complex and multi-component flights, therefore, we guarantee a high level of service at every stage.
Last but not least, the advantage of Empty Legs flights is that, thanks to this service, it is often possible to fly on a route that does not have regular or charter flights. There are still a lot of cities in the world between which there is no direct regular air service, but private planes often fly there. At the same time, the final cost of the flight will be slightly higher than the flight in business class. There will be no tedious queues for check-in, problems with luggage and unnecessary transfers.
