Empty Legs Autumn Update

Empty Legs Fall Update

Take Advantage of the Season’s Most Popular Routes to Plan Your Fall Getaway

The autumn season brings changes in travel habits. This means new routes begin to appear as Empty Legs and are available to savvy travelers at a discount.

Based on our years of service, we can somewhat anticipate the cyclical travel trends that will produce Empty Legs in each season. Here are some trends to keep in mind for fall as you plan your autumnal getaways.

Remember, it’s the destination that matters. If you are not in the departure city, but you are somewhere generally in the flight path between the two cities, these Empty Leg flights can be diverted to you. (Read more FAQs about Empty Legs).

Europe to the United States (and then Vice Versa)

We field late-season tourist and business traffic to Europe, leaving our airframes in many of the continent’s major airport hubs waiting for a customer back to the States.

Current as of July 31:

Aug 21 Milan, Italy Farmingdale, NY

Sept 4 Houston, TX Rome, Italy
Sept 19 Pisa, Italy Teterboro, NJ

We expect to see more Empty Legs from cities like London, Edinburgh, Amsterdam, Milan, and Athens become available in the fall.

Common arrival airfields in the U.S. include Teterboro, NJ (serving New York City); White Plains, NY; Kansas City, MO; Fort Worth, TX; Charleston, SC; and Miami, FL.

Later in the fall, we bring vacationers back from Europe to the United States. This often leaves our airframes scheduled to go back to Europe in October and November with no customers. American travelers can book these transatlantic flights to see Europe long after the tourist crowds have departed.
