ACS launches new Asian empty-legs website
Monday 19, December 2011
Air Charter Service, a world-leading provider of aircraft charters, has launched an Asian edition of its ‘Empty Legs’ website (www.emptylegsasia.com), a service designed to significantly cut the cost of chartering private aircraft.
It is estimated that 30 -40% 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% cheaper.
Gavin Copus, ACS’s Asia Pacific CEO, commented, “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”.
Copus continued, “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. It truly is a win-win situation.
”Anyone can sign up for ACS’s weekly emails detailing available ‘Empty Legs’ in Asia, or alternatively visit the website which is continuously updated.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
