These authorizations to fly over certain countries or land / take off from and in some airports can take time, especially if you do transatlantic or international flights. Intra Europe or intra North America flights may not be too difficult to plan and can be set very fast but for most of the other flights last minute will request time….

To increase your chances of securing a last-minute private jet flight, you can trust JetFlo. Thanks to our aviation expertise mixed with our proprietary technology, we know where and how to find the aircraft that will fly you as soon as possible.
An empty leg, also known as a deadhead or repositioning flight, is a term used in the private aviation industry to describe a one-way flight of an aircraft without passengers. This usually occurs when an aircraft is required to reposition to another airport for its next flight or maintenance, or when it is returning to its home base after dropping off passengers at their destination.
At JetFlo, one of our focuses is to provide you with excellent access to empty legs as it is an opportunity to have a reduce carbon footprint since the flight is already scheduled to take place. Your presence on board will make this flight a passenger transportation flight and not an empty flight.
It’s a win win-win situation as empty legs are usually at lower cost, since the operator may have calculated the cost of this empty flight in operation. However, it's important to note that the availability of empty legs can be unpredictable and may require a degree of flexibility in terms of travel dates and destinations.
We constantly monitor the empty legs available to allow you to take advantage of these cost-saving opportunities.
At JetFlo, we understand that your pet is a member of the family. Yes, you can typically travel with your pet on a private jet, although the policies and restrictions may vary depending on the aircraft owners’ will, the operator and the aircraft type.
Most private jet operators are generally pet-friendly and can accommodate pets on board the aircraft, as long as the pet is well-behaved, properly trained, and meets certain requirements such as being up to date on their vaccinations and having all the necessary travel documents. Some operators may also have weight and size restrictions for pets or may require that the pet is kept in a carrier or crate during the flight.
It's important to notify us in advance if you plan to travel with a pet so that we can make the necessary arrangements and ensure that the aircraft is properly cleaned and prepared for your pet's comfort and safety.
It's also recommended to check with your destination's customs and immigration requirements, as certain countries may have specific regulations and documentation requirements for pets traveling across borders.
We love horses !... JetFlo work with different cago suppliers when it comes to transporting big animals...
We organise to choose the right crate as your horses must be transported in a special crate that is designed to keep them safe and comfortable during the flight. The crate should be large enough for the horse to stand, lie down, and turn around in. It should also have good ventilation and be sturdy enough to withstand the rigors of air travel.
Depending on your destination, you may need to obtain permits and health certificates for your horse. We will support your with the coordination with the veterinarian and local authorities to ensure you have all the necessary paperwork. For the quarantine facilities should this be needed JetFlo can also assist you.
Unlike with commercial aviation, you don’t need to arrive 2 or 3 hours before your flight. We usually recommend our passengers to arrive around half-an-hour before their departure time to allow enough time to board and load your baggage.

SAF stands for Sustainable Aviation Fuel. It is an alternative aviation fuel made from sustainable and renewable sources, such as plant-based materials, waste products, and non-petroleum resources. SAF can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80% compared to traditional jet fuel, making it an important part of efforts to reduce the environmental impact of air travel. SAF can be used as a drop-in replacement for conventional jet fuel, without any modifications to the aircraft or the existing infrastructure. It has been certified for use in commercial aviation by several aviation authorities, including ASTM International (https://www.astm.org ), the European Aviation Safety Agency (https://www.easa.europa.eu/en), IATA (https://www.iata.org/) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) https://www.faa.gov/.
Many private aviation companies are increasingly adopting SAF as part of their sustainability and environmental initiatives, and some operators offer customers the option to offset their carbon emissions or to choose flights that use SAF. The increased use of SAF in aviation is expected to contribute to the aviation industry's efforts to achieve carbon neutrality and reduce its environmental impact in the coming years.
JetFlo strongly encourages the use of SAF fuel when available as it is today the best option for private jet users to significantly reduce the impact of their flights.
Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) is currently available at an increasing number of airports around the world, with more locations expected to offer SAF in the coming years. Some of the airports where SAF is currently available or in development include:
Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)
San Francisco International Airport (SFO)
Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (AMS)
Frankfurt Airport (FRA)
Oslo Airport (OSL)
Stockholm Arlanda Airport (ARN)
London Heathrow Airport (LHR)
London Farnborough Airport (FAB)
Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA)
Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD)
Munich Airport (MUC)
It's recommended to check with your JetFlo sales representative to inquire about the availability of SAF for your specific flight and to confirm any additional requirements or costs associated with using SAF.
The aviation industry is taking a number of measures and initiatives to reduce their environmental impact and become more sustainable. Here are some examples:
Investment in sustainable aviation fuel: The aviation industry is increasingly investing in sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to reduce carbon emissions. Several airlines and private aviation companies have committed to using SAF on some or all of their flights, while others have invested in the development of SAF production facilities.
Fleet renewal and modernization: Many airlines and private aviation companies are retiring older, less fuel-efficient aircraft and replacing them with newer, more efficient models that have lower emissions and are equipped with advanced technology to reduce fuel consumption. That is why JetFlo will always recommend aircraft that are less than 15 years old.
Improved operational practices: The aviation industry is continuously seeking to optimize their operations to reduce their carbon footprint. This includes initiatives such as implementing more efficient air traffic management systems, reducing aircraft weight and drag, and improving ground handling and airport operations.
Carbon offset programs: JetFlo is offering a carbon offset programs that allow customers to offset the carbon emissions from their flights by investing in renewable energy projects or other sustainability initiatives through My Climate Care.
Collaboration and industry partnerships: The aviation industry is working together to share best practices, research and development, and coordinate efforts to reduce environmental impact. For example, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the Airports Council International (ACI) have set ambitious targets for reducing carbon emissions and are working together to achieve these goals.
Alternative aircraft technologies: The aviation industry is also exploring alternative aircraft technologies such as electric or hybrid-electric aircraft, hydrogen fuel cells, and other sustainable options that could help reduce emissions in the future.
These are just a few examples of the many initiatives and efforts being undertaken by the aviation industry to reduce their environmental impact and become more sustainable
