Definition of Empty Leg:
Empty leg is a term used for a segment of a round trip that is scheduled to be flown with no passengers. Typically these legs can be chartered for a significant discount.

DO NOT have to meet your desired routing exactly. They can either begin or end near your desired locations. OR, they can be flying in the direction you need. Aircraft can and will make a stop to pick you up on the way to their final destinations. (Example: buying an empty leg from Los Angeles to New York could be a great value method for you to fly one-way from Las Vegas to Washington D.C.)
When you are requesting an Empty Leg, you are not required to depart from or arrive at the airport noted on the availabilities. These airports are merely guidelines for your selection of appropriate regional aircraft for your mission. On the submission form, you are free to select your departure airport, arrival airport, and date for your charter flight.
