Private Jet Charters are only for the rich and famous, right?
When we think of private jets, we tend to think of famous singers, actors and the Secret Agent type folk, being served champagne at 36,000 feet. Canapes, white leather seats and icy champagne while travelling to exotic locations is the stuff most of us can only dream of. So until we reach our billionaire status goals, we will continue to be met with border control queues and stern faces through security checks, while we drag our carefully measured hand luggage behind us. Not to mention having to leave our beloved fur-babies in the cages below the aircraft.
These rich folk don’t need to do that and it’s just not fair!
Well, that’s where empty leg journeys come in.
An empty leg is basically an empty aircraft, returning from a destination after delivering their passenger to their country of choice. It means that the return journey has not been booked by anyone, and the Jet will need to return empty. (An empty leg).
Private jet companies have now started making a little extra income out of these one way journeys, as they now advertise them at cut rates, sometimes up to 75% off of the original price. This makes private jet hire much more accessible to the general public, especially if you are a group of travellers splitting the cost, it becomes a similar price range to a budget airline. In most cases, you’ll still get the 5 star treatment from your pilots, serving ice cold champagne and a first class dinner menu to go with it. Just don’t forget your P’s and Q’s!
This little known trick now gives you a head start in finding your dream jet, heading to your dream destination. All there is left to do is search for your empty leg, book it and phone to let them know that you have your pooch on board. Villiers Private Jet Charter has many empty leg flights listed every day (link at the bottom of their page), so start your search and enquire today. You could be jetting out of here as soon as tomorrow!
