One-Way Flights

Reduce Your Jet Charter Cost with a One-Way

The term “One-Way” is used to describe a private jet that is returning home empty to its original base airport after a one-way trip or a plane that needs to relocate to another airport for its next charter flight and does not have any passengers on board.

Also known as a “DeadHead Flight”, many aviation professionals have started to market these planes with more competitive, aggressive pricing – since the full trip was already paid for, these flights are sold just to offset the aircraft owners’ cost, as fuel cost, land and ramp fees, instead of flying the aircraft empty.

Not all aircraft owners will allow on-demand charter passengers to use One-Way flights, which makes them more difficult to locate.

It is very important to note that One-Way pricing is NOT standard pricing. You are saving a lot of money by booking a One-Way leg over a “live” leg, however, it may come at a cost to your convenience. For example, if the passenger/owner who booked the “live” leg of the trip decides to cancel their flight, the empty leg that you booked will suddenly become unavailable and your booked trip will be canceled. Additionally, if the passenger/owner of the live leg decides to change their departure time, it can start a domino effect and you will be required to change your departure time to accommodate their change. It is risky, but if you are willing to take the risk – there are savings up to 50% off the normal flight cost.

Who Can Benefit from One-Ways?

One-way flyers with flexible schedules are best suited for One-Ways. This generally works best if you are staying in your destination for more than a few nights. These allow flyers to save money and help the environment by filling empty planes, which creates a win-win scenario.

Don’t be fooled by other companies – request a quote or visit our One-Ways page, and make sure you ask one of our charter advisors about available One-Ways for your upcoming trips!
