Hire a Private Jet to your Favourite Alpine Destination
Snow has blanketed the Alps from St Anton to Zermatt, and from Megève to Madonna di Campiglio. With the end of year holidays just around the corner and the opening of the first ski resorts, the time has come to plan your travels to your favourite winter sports destination.
As the demand for private jet flights to these destinations will rise sharply in the coming days, we encourage you to contact LunaJets as soon as possible to organise your flight. When you do so, be sure to mention your final, final destination.
Instead of flying into Geneva for your ski vacation in Courchevel, why not land in Chambery and transfer by helicopter to the doorstep of your chalet? Your chartered plane can land in Sion or Bolzano to then transfer via helicopter to Verbier or Madonna di Campiglio respectively, saving you valuable time. It is estimated that a one-hour transfer by car can be covered in 20-30 minutes by helicopter.
Some of the preferred winter destinations of LunaJets’ clientele include:
Certain commercially chartered jets such as the PC12 and PC24 can land directly at Saanen-Gstaad Airport. It is also possible to land at Bern Airport from which you can transfer by car or helicopter to Gstaad.
Distance between Gstaad and Bern Airport: 50 km – one-hour drive – 30-minute helicopter flight.
The closest airport to Courchevel lies in Chambery. We can arrange for a helicopter to meet you at Chambery Airport and whisk you away to the posh French resort within minutes of you landing.
Distance between Courchevel and Chambery: 60 km – one-hour drive – 20-minute helicopter flight.
If Verbier is your final destination, you will want to consider landing at Sion Airport. From there, you can easily transfer by chauffeured car or a chartered helicopter to the heart of one of the world’s top alpine resorts.
Distance between Verbier and Sion: 55 km – 50-minute drive – ten-minute helicopter flight.
St Moritz benefits from having an airport a snowball throw away. St Moritz Samedan Airport (Engadin Airport) is less than eight kilometres from the village of St-Moritz. You will be able to reach your five-star hotel or luxury chalet by car in ten minutes.
Distance between St Moritz and Samedan Airport: 8 km – ten-minute drive.
If you are planning to stay in Chamonix, you have the choice to charter your flight into Geneva Airport or Aosta Valley Airport, the latter being the closest in terms of transfer time.
Distance between Chamonix and Aosta Valley Airport: 65 km – one-hour drive – 15-minute helicopter flight.
Those traveling to Kitzbühel, the world-renowned Austrian ski resort, can hire a private jet to land at Innsbruck Airport. Because the drive from Innsbruck to Kitzbühel is quite time-consuming, you might want to consider a helicopter transfer.
Distance between Kitzbühel and Innsbruck: 100 km – one hour and 15-minute drive – 25-minute helicopter flight.
The vibrant alpine village of Courmayeur can easily be reached from the Aosta Valley Airport, down the valley of the same name.
Distance between Courmayeur and Aosta Valley Airport: 40 km – 30-minute drive.
While there are notable advantages to opt for a transfer by helicopter, such as saving valuable time and enjoying spectacular sceneries, there are some points to keep in mind:
- Baggage capacity is very limited (skis can be transported in an attached box), and if necessary extra luggage can be transferred by road.
- With few exceptions, helicopters only fly during the daytime.
- There are two main types of helicopters: mono-engine (economy configuration) and twin-engine (VIP configuration).
