Modern business aviation is ready to offer its customers a wide range of services, among which any customer will be able to find exactly the one that best suits him/her in quality and cost. An Empty Leg is a flight performed by a private plane returning to the airport after another flight has been completed. Prices for such flights are provided with a discount of about 60-80% since this is a technical flight and it will be made in any case.
Let’s give an example - if the previous passenger rented a private plane for a one-way flight only, the board will fly back empty. Therefore, tickets for Empty Leg flights are beneficial both for you and for the operator's company: in any case, a business jet will fly along this route, regardless of the number of passengers on board, and you will be able to buy a seat on board at the most favourable price.
This is also beneficial for the passenger: he/she gets the opportunity to take advantage of all the benefits of VIP service and comfortably fly to the destination paying about 30% of the usual cost of renting an airplane.
In fact, the only difference between an Empty Legs flight and a regular business aviation flight is a certain departure time, depending not on the client, but on the airline that owns the aircraft. Operators offering such a service to their customers often post information about the time of return flights on their official websites in advance. However, even if you need to make a flight a few hours later than the time indicated on the website, this is not a problem and you can always discuss this issue with the manager. The departure of the aircraft will be adjusted exactly to your needs.
Thus, it is safe to say that Empty Legs is a very comfortable and profitable service for customers, which is not inferior in its level and capabilities to the classic private jet rental. In addition, it is necessary to understand that companies providing services for the organization of private flights on business jets are constantly improving and developing their own service and customer orientation. The increasing popularity of business aviation is the reason that the number of aircraft making return flights is constantly increasing. You can rent them and fly to almost any destination.
Our company's website allows you to find a large list of return flights and choose the best option for you. We have collected a unique database of Empty Legs flights, which includes more than 1000 international flights around the world.
Flight prices depend on many variables, such as - flight route, aircraft model (configuration, year of manufacture), number of crew, passengers, days of parking at the airport, catering format, VIP transfer, etc. Our task as an air broker is to take into account all the wishes of the client and find the most suitable option at the best price. Thanks to a large flow of flights, partnerships with dozens of airlines and aircraft owners, as well as thoughtful logistics, "European Private Jets" is ready to offer customers the most profitable options for booking a Dassault Falcon 8X for a private flight.
You can look at approximate prices to understand the general order of prices for the most popular destinations. This cost is not the final offer but is only informational in nature. More accurate information can be obtained from the company's managers. Departures are possible from anywhere in the world. We will be able to make a quick calculation taking into account all your wishes.

Besides intercontinental flights, local flights within Europe are very popular. Due to cooperation with European companies, we can arrange flights both on a small business jet and on a Dassault Falcon 8X. Departures are possible from any city in the European Union - you just need to clarify the features of the airport. At the same time, 90% of all flights are to France, Italy, England, Switzerland, Germany and Spain. Here are the price benchmarks for the most popular destinations:
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 Dassault Falcon 8X 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.
You can use an online calculator to get an instant charter quote. We will send you an offer with a detailed calculation of the flight price via e-mail or messenger. You can also send us an e-mail to clarify the flight details and ask any questions you have about the jet and booking conditions.
Keep in mind that these figures are indicative only. Our manager will contact you as soon as possible to discuss the details of the flight and help you choose the most suitable option. Price calculation and jet search services are free and don’t impose any obligations. Experts of our company are always happy to answer all your questions and consult you on business aviation issues.

Before using this service, a potential client needs to clearly understand from which airport he/she plans to take off and to which point of the globe they are going to fly. The availability of such information will allow you to get up-to-date information about all the most suitable and relevant flights, as well as the time and date of their departure. In some cases, airlines, trying to get the maximum benefit from the plane returning after the flight, are ready to meet their customers halfway and postpone the time and date of departure to a more convenient for the customer. However, the customer needs to discuss this moment with the manager of the company offering Empty Legs.
The main stages of obtaining a service are:
It should be noted that if the client uses this service, he/she will get the opportunity to wait for departure in the VIP area of the airport, undergo accelerated customs inspection and registration, and also come on board through a separate boarding terminal. Also, he/she can transport pets and up to 25 kilograms of cargo directly on board the aircraft without making additional payments (the amount of luggage depends on the model and capacity of the aircraft). That is why, a lot of media personalities, politicians and businessmen use the services of return flights.
If we talk about the Jet Sharing service, then the client buys a certain number of seats on board of the aircraft. At its core, such a service is quite similar to buying tickets for a business class flight offered by conventional civil aviation. The customer pays for one or more seats, and other passengers who have also decided to use this service can fly next to him/her.
A return flight costs, as a rule, a little more expensive than the rental one, but at the same time the clients most often get the entire aircraft at their own disposal, and therefore only the customers and crew members will be present on board. In addition, the clients can choose the most convenient seats and agree to a full load of the aircraft with passengers, which will allow them to save even more on the flight.
Empty Legs will be of interest to both commercial structures and organizations that often send their employees and specialists on business trips abroad, for business negotiations, conducting audits of branches and concluding new contracts. After all, if your company uses this service, the specialists will be able to fly with maximum comfort and use the flight time for negotiations with employees, work or rest. High-speed satellite Internet, telephony or conference communication can be present on board at the request of customers. It should be noted that customers who decide to use this service have access to a different class of aircraft, which allows you to find exactly the option that is best suited for your flight.

A two-way flight using the return flight service is often possible on the most popular routes. At the same time, it is worth noting that using a classic private jet rental for a two–way flight is a very expensive service. That is why many, customers who often use the services of business aviation try to fly with the help of Empty Legs flights in two directions, thus obtaining the comfort and attractive cost of the service they need. Although it may seem that it is almost impossible to pick up such flights by contacting European Private Jets, you can be sure that our specialists will choose the right route for you at the most affordable cost.
Our employees are also ready to take care of all the nuances associated with the organization of complex flights with the help of return flights, when the clients visit several cities located in various parts of the world and then return home. It is possible to organize combined flights, where a part of the route is carried out by a private plane, and another part – by a helicopter or a yacht.
The cost of a traditional aircraft rental is calculated for flight hours, taking into account all fees, crew work, and the cost of individual services. In the case of Empty Legs, airlines often set a fixed cost of the flight.
Aircraft owners treat Empty Legs as an opportunity to reduce their costs for transportation and technical flights by selling seats even on such flights. In most cases, the cost of flying on such flights covers the costs but does not bring the airline any profit. That is, if you had your own plane in use, you would have paid about the same amount for the flight.
Dozens of aircraft operating business aviation flights belonging to private airlines depart from large airfields every day. Therefore, if you contact European Private Jets, you can tell the manager the most convenient date and time of departure for you. The specialists will check the relevant information and select an Empty Legs flight for you that fully meets all your needs.
If there is no suitable option at the moment, we will start tracking this direction and when a suitable flight appears, we will promptly notify you about it.
The package of documents that the client needs to make a private flight directly depends on which destination it is carried out to. So, for example, if you plan to make a long-distance flight, it means that you will need a foreign passport, and in some cases a visa. EU residents can move freely within Europe. However, due to the global pandemic, entry to some countries may be restricted, which also needs to be taken into account before making a flight. Contact our company via the website or by phone number and our specialists will provide all the necessary advice on entering another country, as well as help to collect all the necessary documents for this.
You can see the list of return flights that European Private Jets will be carrying out in the near future on the website. The number of available destinations may change over time - if the one you need is not among them yet, you can contact us. There are dozens of offers available for many popular destinations.
Each customer of European Private Jets can pay for the private flight in the most simple, profitable, and convenient way. For example, the customer can pay for the company services by bank transfer or card payment. We accept both cash and cryptocurrency. We always conclude contracts with our customers. Our company guarantees a high level of service, consideration of the customers’ needs and wishes, and full data privacy. Trying to accommodate our clients, we always provide flexible terms of cooperation and payment. However, you should understand that each case is individual and requires separate consideration.
The cancellation and refund terms are prescribed in the contract, provided to each customer before the beginning of cooperation. The contract is drawn up based on the customer’s needs and the chosen business jet. Since private jets are owned by different companies and individuals, the cancellation conditions may vary. On our part, we do everything we can to minimize the size of fines and organize the flight at the most convenient time for our customers. If the flight was cancelled because of our company, we will refund you the full price of the jet charter.
By ordering the services of our company, you become the sole owner of the jet for the time of charter. The customer can plan and make adjustments to the route, determine the number and duration of stops and choose the date and time of departure. If you need to make some last-minute changes to the flight plan, we will try to do it in the most cost-effective manner.
