Peace of mind!!! My family and I just completed our first charter on a private jet with Stratos. My wife and I have been on a few of our friend’s charters before and I fly regularly on my company's aircraft but this was the first charter of our own. Stratos and specifically Joel Thomas made my wife and I feel that we were in great hands throughout the planning, selection and ultimately flight process. Family loved it!!! Great experience.
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.
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.
At last minute's notice I needed to find a private plane to get my elderly parents from Bangor, Maine to Atlanta. I googled charter companies and Stratos Charters was first to pop up. I called immediately and Joel (founder and president of company) answered. He could not have been more gracious and helpful. He was the perfect combination of professional and personable. Our charter was arranged and the trip went through seamlessly. Stratos Charter and Joel made a stressful situation into a very pleasant one for us. I highly recommend their services and will definitely use them in the future. Thank you to them!
Another example is the ACJ350 XWB – the world’s most modern VIP widebody corporate jet.

For the spacious cabin – which provides 270 square metres of floor space – the ACJ350 XWB is outfitted with Easyfit provisions, ensuring smooth completion for customers.
L’aéroport international de Genève, anciennement connu comme l’aéroport de Cointrin, est situé à environ 15 minutes en voiture du centre historique de la ville. Sa localisation frontalière avec la France et la Suisse en font un lieu simple d’accès depuis les deux pays. Il possède un terminal pour l’aviation privée avec des salons VIP. L’aéroport possède une seule piste, qui est la plus longue de Suisse, avec une longitude de 3.900m  (12.975 pieds), et une des plus longues d’Europe, et peut donc accueillir des avions de toutes tailles. 
There are potentially even better deals. JetSuite offers SuiteDeals for as little as $500 each way. You have to sign up on its website, but when I visited, it didn’t have any flights listed. Wheels Up has a program called 8760. You pay $6,900 annually and access empty legs for as little as $320. You also get entry to its hospitality at events at the Super Bowl, The Masters, other high profile confabs, plus an Inspirato Key Membership which normally has a $10,000 initiation fee and then $3,500 annual dues.

Cinquante ans plus tard, l’aviation d’affaires atteint des sommets avec des jets toujours plus luxueux et performants, mais plafonne en terme de ventes. Depuis le record de 2008 et les 1.306 unités vendues tous avionneurs confondus, le secteur traverse des turbulences. Selon la Gama (General Aviation Manufacturers Association), en 2015, les ventes mondiales de jets privés sont redescendues à 718 unités, générant tout de même un chiffre d’affaires d’environ 22 milliards de dollars. Et les avionneurs sont optimistes : la période de renouvellement des flottes approche, et elle sera même accélérée avec le lancement de nouveaux modèles.
Les prix pour l’affrètement d’un vol privé varient en fonction de plusieurs facteurs comme la taille de l’avion, la disponibilité, les dates du voyage, le nombre de passagers, et les bagages.

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.

Delta Private Jets, a subsidiary of Delta Air Lines, earlier this year launched Sky Access. You pay $8,500 and can fly as many empty legs as you want at no additional cost. You also get 20% off select fares on Delta’s airline flights. There is a $500 fee if you cancel or no show. Over this weekend 66 empty legs were listed, although some such as Ft. Lauderdale to Miami, all of 30 miles, wouldn’t even give you time to pop open a beer. More interesting was Washington D.C. to Chicago and New York to Sarasota. There were also Nantucket to New York and Las Vegas to San Francisco, however, they were both on Friday, so the wrong direction for most people, and that’s the point, and perhaps a good segue to discussing the some of the downsides.

I had 15 piece band booked on a commercial airline that got cancelled due to weather. Every single flight for the next 2 days was sold out and the band was going to miss their performance. Thank to the Herculean efforts from Glenn and Joel, we were able to secure a flight for the following morning and get the band to Florida on time. Glenn was simply amazing with his follow-through, availability when I needed him and keeping an eye on everything. He was with me from the first phone call at 6:30pm until take-off the next morning at 10:10am. Thank you Stratos for saving the day!

The Hawker 750’s biggest advantage is in its cabin, a fuselage-stretch modification first enjoyed by the -800 series. The cabin measures 21.3 feet-long, 5.7 feet-high and 6 feet wide, almost comparable to the class above. This space is plenty big to accommodate seven or eight passengers, a forward galley, a roomy lavatory, and a closet and baggage compartment. For even more amenities, the cabin comes equipped with the Airshow 21 cabin management system, providing user-friendly, LCD screens at every seat and VIP control of cabin temperature, light and entertainment systems. Superior travel is inevitable in the Hawker 750’s cabin.

Other near-term empty leg deals included Houston to Aspen on a Citation X seating eight for $14,000, not much less than an eight-seat Learjet 45XR for $18,945 with a normal charter. Skyjet, a broker that also offers empty legs had one this weekend from Nassau in the Bahamas to Ft. Lauderdale on a six-seat Phenom 300 for $3,000. Ft. Lauderdale to Key West and Tampa to Ft. Lauderdale, also on a Phenom 300, were being offered at $2,625 each. Chartering a similar aircraft for the same timings the regular way would run around $6,000.
