Carol Cork, marketing director of PrivateFly.com comments as follows:
“Empty legs are necessary one-way repositioning flights, which can be sold at short notice – at a significant discount. In Europe, approximately 40 per cent of private jet flights are flying empty, so it’s the savvy traveller’s way of flying by private jet, without the luxury price tag.
“Empty legs can be worked into a romantic itinerary, and combined with airline flights. If you’re prepared to be flexible, and make plans at relatively short notice, an empty leg flight can make a perfect spontaneous treat for Valentine’s Day.
“Private jet empty leg flights currently available on or around 14th February include:
