Private jet flights can be booked at 50pc discount

May 31 - Private jet flights are becoming more affordable, and some one way flights can be booked at discounts of nearly 50 percent.  The charter brokerage company Air Partner launched their new EmptySectors website, which allows passengers to review a list of private jets that have already been chartered and have seats available onboard.  The EmptySectors.com website will help companies limit the cost of corporate jet travel, a market that declined by 40 percent during the global financial crisis. 

Kevin Ducksbury with Air Partner explained their process: “Operators usually charter flights on a one-way basis and the aircraft returns home empty. What we do is utilize that empty segment by selling seats to customers at a much lower price, as the majority of the cost has already been recovered when the aircraft is chartered in the first place.

Ducksbury, who is Director of Middle East and Asia Operations for Air Partner, said Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, and Kuwait are important markets for the company, and it plans to expand its presence in one of these territories.
