Empty leg flights from Los Angeles to San Diego

An empty leg is when a charter operator needs to return or connect to another flight, and does not have passengers booked – therefore flies empty. These empty leg flights can translate into exceptional savings for travelers. If your travel time is flexible, an empty leg between Los Angeles and San Diego can go for 25 to 75 percent less than the regular price.
Unlike a regular booking, you will not be able to select your departure airport, type of private plane, or the departure or arrival time. However, if those stipulations are not a problem for you, an empty leg flight is the best way to fly privately and save money on your ticket. Contact your Stratos air charter agent to see what empty legs between LA and San Diego are available and weigh your options.
