Ever found yourself stuck in the holiday rush at the airport? You know the one I’m talking about— snaking TSA lines, hundreds of families with carts full of luggage and a handful of harried looking staff trying desperately to check everyone in on time. Have you ever wanted to get away from it all? How about aboard your very own private jet?

If this sounds like your holiday dream come true, you’re in luck, because private jet charter company New Flight Charters is offering heavily discounted tickets on board its empty-leg specials. These flights are made whenever an aircraft needs to move from one location to another without passengers — if, for example, it needs to relocate in order to pick up a scheduled charter. In this case, passengers can book the intermediate flight at a much cheaper rate than normal for a private flight.

If you do choose to take advantage of this offer, make sure you pay with a credit card that maximizes return on airfare, because there are some serious points earning opportunities here that you won’t want to miss. For example, the Chase Sapphire Reserve® is an excellent option, as it offers 3x Ultimate Rewards on all travel. Booking a single flight above (like the $10,500 flight from Detroit to White Plains) will net you 31,500 Ultimate Rewards points.
