Empty Legs – Smart Way to Indulge in Private Jet Travel

November 21st, 2011 by

Looking for a good deal on a one-way private jet trip? You may be able to purchase a ticket for an empty leg flight at a marked down price. If you have a flexible schedule, flying on an empty leg – also known as a deadhead – is a smart way to save a lot on private flights.

Most jet charter flights are purchased as a round trip package in which the customer’s trip starts and ends at the same location. But if a passenger will be spending more time at their destination or does not want to make a return trip, the jet will often fly back to its home base empty, hence “empty leg.”

For example, a passenger wants to charter a jet one-way from Chicago to San Diego. If that jet’s home base is in Chicago, it will need to be returned to the Windy City, with or without any passengers. Or it may need to fly to another city, perhaps Dallas, to pick up another passenger for a different destination. Either way, someone has to pay the cost of that empty leg. Customers may be required to pay a surcharge to cover empty return flights or repositioning fees, but if the charter company can sell the return flight to another traveler, costs may be reduced all around.

Jet operators typically offer empty leg flights at a reduced price, similar to the way airlines will sell empty seats for great deals at the last minute. However, such flights are subject to sudden changes or cancellations based on the initial flight that would create the empty leg in the first place. When you make plans to utilize one of these great deals, make sure you double check on the details: the empty leg flight may not be guaranteed or rescheduled for the same price if the origination flight is cancelled. Also, be sure to ask about the cost of any other fees and airport taxes.

Some say that empty legs make up for more than a third of all private business jet flights, though there is no firm data to support this statement. Most of these flights are to and from popular destinations worldwide, making it easier to find an empty leg to such locations.

Purchasing an empty leg flight should not be confused with purchasing a simple one-way charter flight – they are not quite the same thing. One-way flights frequently cost more per hour than a typical round-trip flight, but the customer does not have to pay for the returning empty leg. But when you buy an empty leg flight, it should not cost the regular price-per-hour, it should be significantly less.

Here at evoJets Charter, we specialize in finding empty leg flights for customers based on their location and planned destination. Click on the link “empty legs” on our main menu to take advantage of the great deals afforded by flights which would otherwise be of less benefit to everyone.

The aircraft’s cabin comes with fold-out work tables, a refreshment area with hot and cold drink facilities, and an enclosed lavatory. There is 40 cubic feet of space available for luggage and gear.

Two updated Garrett TFE731-5R-1H engines give the Hawker 800 a boost in range and field performance. The aircraft can reach speeds of up to 496 mph maximum, and can fly as far as 2800 statute miles. The Hawker 800’s flight deck contained one of the first digital glass EFIS cockpits, with an avionics system based on the Honeywell SPZ-8000 suite.

Off to Chicago on a Gulfstream G500!

November 2nd, 2011 by

The “Windy City” may be leagues away from you, but evoJets puts Chicago, IL, right in your backyard. Let us fly you direct to any of the area’s four airports, in maximum speed, comfort, and luxury. Chicago is a hub for transportation, telecommunication, industry, and infrastructure, and three major financial and futures exchanges are based there – The Chicago Stock Exchange, The Chicago Board Options Exchange, and The Chicago Mercantile Exchange. The city’s enormous McCormick Place is the third largest convention center in the world.

If you have an upcoming business in one of these happening locations, or elsewhere, or if you’re planning to visit the city for leisure, one of the best options available to reach Chicago is, on a Gulfstream G500.

This ultra-long range business jet is the ideal choice for travelers who desire separate areas for dinner, entertainment, work, or rest. In the cabin of the Gulfstream G500, passengers can enjoy plenty of space for anywhere from 8 to 18 passengers, in a choice of six different configurations, with three separate temperature zones and numerous amenities that reinforce in-flight productivity and absolute rest and respite.

All arrangements include a combination of cozy club seats, divans, and conference or dining areas, and maximum berthing can be prepared for up to 6 travelers. The cabin also features an entertainment system including an Airshow info system, DVD and CD players, and two LCD monitors, a full-sized galley for fresh meal services, and a spacious lavatory with shower. The BMW / Rolls Royce BR-700-710-C4-11 turbofan engines of the G500 provide the aircraft with an extra-long range, spectacular takeoff performance, and a higher flight ceiling than earlier models.

Once you arrive in Chicago aboard your private jet charter aircraft, you will find countless attractions and entertainment possibilities awaiting your attention. Many of them are hosted at Navy Pier and its boardwalk, including a 150-foot Ferris wheel, endless dining and shopping locations, and boat and segway tours. Another entertainment plaza is Millennium Park, where visitors can enjoy the fabulous art, music, architecture, landscaping, and in winter, ice skating too.

Other Chicago sights are found at the Skydeck Chicago in the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower), the Hancock Observatory, Chicago Cultural Center, the Lincoln Park Observatory, Chicago History Museum, The Joffrey Ballet, The Art Institute of Chicago, and several Frank Lloyd Wright buildings. The city also has numerous golf courses and options for fishing and yacht excursions.

Chicago has nearly 700 hotels, ranging from economy to the posh and luxuriant. A few of the top tier accommodations include Four Seasons Chicago, Trump International Chicago, The Ritz-Carlton, The Peninsula Chicago, Fairmont Chicago, The Drake, Conrad Chicago, and the Park Hyatt.

There are two major airports in the Chicago area – Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD, KORD) and Chicago Midway International Airport (MDW, KMDW). O’Hare is located about 17 miles northwest of the Chicago Loop, and is the second busiest airport in the world. Midway is 8 miles southwest of the Chicago Loop. A third, “reliever” airport for O’Hare is Waukegan Regional Airport (UGN, KUGN), which is located in Waukegan, IL, about 35 miles north of Chicago. Due to the high amounts of commercial traffic at O’Hare, many private, business, executive, corporate, and governmental aircraft choose to operate out of Waukegan when flying to and from Chicago. About 38 miles northwest of the central business district of Chicago is another small reliever airport – Lake in the Hills Airport (3CK).
