Un vol à vide commercialisé, que l’on nomme en général « empty leg », est un vol qui a été réservé pour un aller simple et dont le voyage retour se fait sans passager. Private Jet Charter propose de nombreux vols à vides chaque semaine, partout dans le monde. Ces vols incluent des « empty legs » tels qu’une location de jet privé entre Moscou et Dubaï, d’un BBJ entre Singapour et Genève, d’un Cessna entre Londres et Paris, d’un Gulfstream G550 des Maldives à New York et bien d’autres. L’avantage d’un « empty leg » ou vol à vide commercialisé est son prix réduit. En effet, la moitié du trajet ayant déjà été payée, cela permet d’obtenir un vol à prix réduit dans un jet de luxe.
Les frais de contributions dépendent de l’avion privé ainsi que la grandeur de l’action. Avec un avion léger comme le Cessna Mustang, il est possible de voyager 2000 kilomètres avec 3 jusqu’à 4 passagers. Un nouveau Cessna Mustang coûte environ 2.5 millions. Des plus grands avions comme Guftstream volent sur une distance de 13.000 km avec 8 passagers. Le prix pour un G650 est d’environ 48 millions sans comptez les frais mensuels nécessaire pour l’entretien, garage et management. Ces frais annuelles fixes sont partagés avec d’autres parties.
Il existe d'autres options pour voyager en jet et payer moins cher (même si cela restera plus onéreux que les vols dernière minute), c'est l'abonnement. C'est avantageux pour ceux qui font beaucoup de trajets. La compagnie SurfAir par exemple sur la côte ouest des États-Unis propose de devenir membre pour 1 750$ par mois. Une fois l'abonnement payé, on peut prendre le jet de façon illimitée. La compagnie vole depuis une douzaines de villes du Nevada et de la Californie. À l'Est des États-Unis on trouve la compagnie Beacon qui propose aussi un abonnement de 1 750$ pour des vols illimités entre New-York et Boston. Quand on regarde le prix, on se rend compte que cela devient avantageux à partir d'environ 4 vols par mois minimum. Au-delà de 4, les vols coûteront en effet moins chers qu'en classe affaires sur une compagnie régulière.
After your initial enquiry you will be assigned a personal charter expert who will send you a selection of quotes for you to choose from. Each quote will have a clear breakdown of aircrafts and airports and reasons they have been selected for you. Should you wish to go ahead they will then book the aircraft and send you all the flight details including directions to the terminal and any other important information. They will be your first point of call for any further enquiries you may have up to the flight and, if possible, they will meet you at the terminal. From your initial quote you will be able to contact your account manager 24/7 (if on holiday you will be assigned another account manager to cover) so you can call from wherever, whenever you like.
Mr.  is extremely upset and disappointed with Stratos Jets as the plane had mechanical problems on take off which delayed the trip by 5 hours. It was his wife's birthday and the entire family had a full day of sightseeing arranged which had to be cancelled. The trip was very costly and he feels he is due back some compensation. Thank you, Etta G.
I work on the operator side of this business. Joel and his team (Christina, Simon, Kerry, and more) are all incredibly wonderful to work with. They are always responsive in a timely manner and deliver accurate information consistently. They bring a very positive attitude and outlook to this industry. Hopeful to book many more trips with them in the future.

Once again: Joel, Sarah and Sandra delivered a seamless experience as well as the pilots and ground crew. There was 5 feet of snow in Steamboat Springs after a blizzard (Hayden Airport) and we took off perfectly and had a very smooth flight despite weather. The jet was beautiful and the awesome pilots tolerated our golden retriever trying to take over the navigation of the plane and two cats meowing. Stratos arranged for transportation home and the driver was so pleasant. Super happy again and will continue to only use them. Thank you again!


So is there a cheaper way to get that entire private jet to yourself to really impress your friends and family? The answer is yes. It’s called and an empty leg, which is repositioning flight that takes place after the aircraft dropped off its last full paying charter passengers and now has to fly to another airport to pick up its next group, or sometimes for the aircraft and crew to come back to their base after dropping off customers and various combinations.


Having used many charter companies before with mixed experiences, I can say with confidence that Stratos has the best service and highest level of professionalism of any of the charter services I have encountered. Most recently, we had an unfortunate last minute cancellation of a charter booked through another service, and Stratos came through at the last minute to find the right plane at the right price for us with under 24 hour notice. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism as well as their willingness and ability to go above and beyond to find the right charter for us - even as a first time customer.

Depuis quelques années, une poignée de start-ups perturbent en effet le marché du voyage privé en le rendant plus accessible au voyageur moyen, en utilisant des technologies à portée de tous. Dans la plupart des cas, cela prend la forme d’un partage de vol (se réunir avec d’autres voyageurs et pilotes pour réduire les coûts) ou d’une réservation sur un vol qui voyage à vide pour aller chercher des voyageurs. L’objectif de ces services est de faire se rencontrer des passagers avec des pilotes disposés à optimiser l’occupation de certains vols, et remplir des sièges vides.
Everything worked out great. Working with Stratos was seamless. When the Trump TFR foiled our plans on both the outbound and inbound legs, Stratos was proactive in finding the best solution for us and minimized the disruption to the timing of our itinerary while also remaining flexible to our schedule as well. Joel could not have been easier to work with, finding us the best options at the best prices.
