New Flight Charters, a US charter broker, has announced what it claims to be the largest public listing of empty legs in the jet charter industry. The company is now listing more than 200 upcoming and available empty legs from US private charter aircraft.
Rates vary since each empty leg charter is unique, but pricing is typically 30-50 per cent lower than standard charter quotes.
Examples include: Van Nuys, CA to Aspen, CO, Citation X, super midsize jet, 12-14 December, $13,500; Pontiac, MI to Fort Myers, FL, Citation Bravo light jet, 14 December, $7,900; White Plains, NY to Palm Beach, FL, Gulfstream G200, super midsize jet, 15-16 December, $15,250 and Sun Valley, ID to Teterboro, NJ, Falcon 50 super midsize jet, 27-28 December, $24,500.
“When an empty leg matches up with a flight need, there is no better value in private flying," comments Rick Colson, New Fight Charters' president. "With the largest aircraft resource of 7,598 in the US, New Flight Charters can custom-source ideal options for any aircraft type, ratings or amenities, for any requested charter, and with a best-price guarantee."
Four hundred and thirty-five floating fleet jets from 39 operators are available nationwide through New Flight Charters at all sizes from light jets to ultra long-range jets such as the Global 5000. Charter quotes for these floating fleet aircraft are typically 15-30 per cent less than traditional based aircraft.
