How to Find the Best Last-Minute Private Jet Deals

by Joe Nickdow

Booking a last-minute flight with a commercial airline can be difficult to impossible, especially if you don’t have much flexibility with your travel plans. It can also be costly, and oftentimes, not worth the added expense. 

Last-minute private jet deals can be a great way to save money if you have flexibility in your travel plans; in other scenarios, looking for a last-minute flight may just be essential due to something that suddenly came up, such as a family emergency.

At Luxury Aircraft Solutions, we’re available to help you charter a last-minute private jet at any time. Depending on how flexible you are with your travel plans, last-minute charter flights can also save a substantial amount of money.

Last-minute private jet deals can help you save

Last-minute travel plans come up for different reasons: an urgent situation, an impromptu decision to take a vacation, or unexpected changes in original plans. Last-minute plans may not be an ideal situation to be in, but they can help you save a lot of money on private flights.

Taking advantage of empty leg flights 

An empty leg flight is the one-way empty flight of an aircraft that has no passengers and is offered to travelers looking to get last-minute deals. There are two instances in which you can charter an empty leg flight:

  1. A flight from point A to point B has to return to point A without any passengers, at its own cost of fuel and other charges. This one-way trip is offered to passengers looking to charter a private jet. If it gets chartered, you will get to enjoy the same luxury, convenience, and privacy at a fraction of the cost that you had to pay for exclusive charter jets, because it needs to make that trip back to point A regardless.
  2. A flight from point A at point B gets a new and urgent order to get to point C and pick passengers up. If the timing and route works for your schedule, you can likely secure a discounted deal for an empty leg flight from point B to point C because the jet was headed that way with or without passengers on board. 

Be flexible in your traveling plans

Being flexible in your travel plans can make empty leg flights and last-minute private jet deals easier to find. Compromising on your travel plans, whether it’s involving the schedule, dates, airports, or aircraft, can make a private jet charter a financially feasible option. 

Our empty leg flight tool makes it easy for travelers to discover empty leg flights that are coming up, or you can contact us directly for more information on last-minute private jet deals.

Check alternate airports for charter flights

When you charter a private jet, you have access to just about every general aviation airport there is, including municipal airports that commercial planes cannot fly to. Not only can these airports be more convenient choices in general, but if you’re flexible with the airports you fly to or from, you may be able to score a last-minute private jet deal. 

At Luxury Aircraft Solutions, our team is standing by and ready to help you explore alternate airport options that are not as well-known as larger, commercial airports. If saving money is a priority for your upcoming private jet charter and you’re flexible with airport options, we can help you find an option that works.

Travel with a group

Securing a last-minute private jet deal is easier if you are traveling with a group that you can split the cost with. Flying with friends and family is always fun, and boarding an exclusive plane that is just for you and your group without the crowd or the waiting time is completely worth it. Larger jets can accommodate bigger groups, so even though it may be last minute, getting more people to split the cost can make a last-minute deal even cheaper.

Last-minute private jet deals are also a good option for business travelers that need to suddenly fly somewhere for an urgent matter, such as an impromptu meeting or other important event. At Luxury Aircraft Solutions, we can accommodate you and your colleagues by finding you the best available private jet deal at the last minute, ensuring that you get to your destination on time.
