Ferry Flight definition: get a summary, overview, and a better understanding of this term in the Dauntless Jaunter Travel Glossary.
In airline parlance, a ferry flight refers to the delivery of an aircraft to a specific destination, usually without paying passengers aboard. Ferry flights are often known as positioning flights or repositioning flights, because they re-position the aircraft to meet the airline’s needs.
Common reasons for ferry flights include aircraft maintenance, route disruption, and delivering a new aircraft (sometimes referred to as a “green aircraft“).
