In some cases, you can use Jet Sharing or Empty Legs systems to reduce the final price. In a nutshell, Jet Sharing allows you to divide the total cost of renting an airplane between all participants of the flight – it means that you shouldn’t pay for the whole plane, but for a specific seat. Therefore, it is often also called a business jet rental.
As for Empty Legs, it is a system of return flights. That is, if a person orders a flight by McDonnell Douglas DC-8-72 to a specific direction - the plane will fly back empty. In fact, it returns to the home airport without passengers. As a rule, such flights have a specific departure date and a certain time interval. If it suits you, you will be able to make a private flight with a discount of up to 70% of the usual cost of the flight. If you need a non-urgent flight, we recommend that you leave a request to our consultants and they will choose the best Empty Legs option for you, taking into account all your wishes. We use exclusive bases, taking into account the offers of the best European business aviation operators.
