Depending on who you believe 30-to-50% of all private jet flights are ferry flights. However, that doesn’t mean they are necessarily dirt cheap. Magellan Jets, which sells jet cards and on-demand charter also offers empty legs, and while you have to contact the company for pricing, it says rates start at $3,000 per hour. Airstream Jets enables visitors to its website to download a list of active empty legs and while most of the 13 listings were for the next two weeks, there were flights posted through mid-November, one an empty leg in September on a Gulfstream G-IVSP from New York to London for $49,900. Another broker quoted the same date and route at $92,000. Even more attractive was a G500 charter this weekend from Palermo, Italy to New York for $35,000. Quotes for a non-empty leg charter that I received from another broker for random dates in August started at $111,000.
Quel est le prix pour voler dans ce jet privé ? Vous devrez dépenser 2 400€ l’heure de vol pour un trajet aller/retour (le retour devant être effectué dans les deux jours suivant le départ) ou 4 000€ l’heure de vol pour un aller simple. Ce tarif inclue l’équipage, le téléphone satellite à disposition, le repas, le champagne et les biscuits Pierre Hermé, un des meilleurs pâtissiers du monde. Il faut bien un peu de luxe pour célébrer ça, non ?

Private Flights give you the peace of mind that when you are working during your flight no one else is looking at your important information. Conducting private meetings during your Private Flights is as secure and convenient as being in your own boardroom.
I met Joel, years ago, when he first introduced me to Stratos Jet Charters during its start-up phase. I was always very impressed on their marketing and honesty, as a broker. Joel is very genuine and caring when it comes to his customers or the operators that he works with. I know that Stratos Jets will not sacrifice safety for anything. I know that he likes to treat everyone like they are part of the Stratos Jet family. The trip planning process, from quote request to trip planning to invoice, is seamless – they’ve thought of everything and continue to be ahead of the trend in our industry with the way they do things. They think of everything! In my opinion, Stratos Jet Charters set the bar for aircraft brokerage and I will always continue to look forward to working with them.
Joel and Stratos are amazing! He made sure our flight was tailored perfectly and was very responsive and always available for contact. They catered specifically to our needs with late notice. The pilots were fantastic and patient, especially considering we had three animals and arrived 10 minutes before take-off. They provided the smoothest flight in the Hawker we’ve ever taken. Stratos offered transportation to and from; the boarding process was welcoming and convenient. We will only fly privately with Stratos Jets through Joel and his team. Thank you guys for everything!
C'est ce petit prix qu'ont payé certains clients pour louer un jet entre Oxford (Connecticut) et Philadelphie, soit 300 km pour 90$! Tous les tarifs ne sont cependant pas affichés sur le site de la compagnie, c'est pourquoi il faut parfois appeler directement par téléphone et les aviser que l'on cherche un vol pour telle date. Une des raisons qui expliquent des prix si peu élevés est le fait que pour une compagnie comme JetSuite, il faut éviter d'avoir des sièges vides. Ils préfèrent donc brader certains places plutôt que de voler à 40% de la capacité.
My boss recently travelled to Europe for the entire month of August. During that time his jet had mechanical issues and could no longer fly where he wanted. He had about 12 flights left in his trip around Europe and Stratos Jet Charters, especially Heather Latch, saved our lives. They were able to accommodate 90% of the trips he wanted at the time he wanted. She really was a life saver for myself and my boss. I will definitely use Stratos Jets again and work with Heather any day of the week! They are magnificent!!
I have worked with quite a few different charter companies over the years and Stratos Jets has been the easiest to work with. I always work with Kerry Hill because she very professional, friendly, and is just down right awesome at her job. I often need last minute trips for my boss and she always gets back to me quickly regardless of what time of day it is. I truely feel she goes above and beyond to make sure every aspect of the trip runs smoothly and everyone is happy. I can't say enough about how much stress is taken out of booking these flights because I know Stratos and Kerry have everything I need covered.
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.
