Air Charter Service launches Empty Legs in Asia


ASIA – Air Charter Service (ACS), a provider of aircraft charters, has launched an Asian edition of its Empty Legs website, a service designed to cut the cost of chartering private aircraft.
It is estimated that 30 to 40 per cent of private jet flights are operated without passengers as they position to their next task. Although these empty legs can offer less flexibility than a normal charter, they can be booked for a fraction of the cost, up to 75 percent cheaper.
Gavin Copus, ACS’s Asia Pacific CEO said: “We find that many of our clients use ‘Empty Legs’ for last minute holidays or link them in with existing travel arrangements.
“They have for a long time been popular in the West, but despite the recent surge in popularity of private jet travel in Asia, are relatively unheard of in the East, until now.
“The website provides a platform for us to communicate the availability of our ‘Empty Legs’ to our clients, but it’s not just our customers who can benefit from this service. Local operators now have the opportunity to promote their ’Empty Legs’ through our website, maximizing the opportunity that someone will book it.”
