What Does Leg Mean in Aviation?

A leg is a single one-way journey from point A to point B. While a leg can make up the entire journey, the term is usually used to refer to a single part of a larger trip and to mean that a certain flight was only part of a longer flight plan. Legs can be layovers in commercial travel and with private jet charters can refer to fuel stops or repositioning. West Palm Jet Charter offers empty legs flights at a discounted rate to avoid the aircraft being empty for the leg of a journey in which the aircraft would be returning to its home base or traveling to a different location to pick up chartered passengers.
