Charter a jet for your ski trip

The quickest way to get on piste

13 September 2017

With the ski season just round the corner, we’re pleased to be taking private jet charter requests and assisting our clients with plans for their winter skiing break.

When chartering a jet for your ski trip, there are additional benefits on top of the convenience, privacy and comfort of private jet travel;

  • Enjoy more time at your resort. Who wants to wait around in an airport for 3 hours? Arrive 30 minutes before your flight departs with not a queue in sight.
  • No waiting at baggage reclaim to collect your skis or boards - they’ll be on your private jet with you and can be taken directly from the aircraft when you leave.
  • Fly to the smaller airports nearer your resort, such as Sion and Samedan and your reduce transfer time – or take a helicopter direct to your chalet.
  • Enjoy flexible departure times to suit you and your party. Choose your own schedule and enjoy more time on the slopes.

For small groups, even a party of just four passengers travelling to Europe together can find that the cost of hiring a jet versus flying on a scheduled flight is surprisingly cost-effective.

What about altiports?

Commercially chartered private jets are not permitted to land at altiports like Megeve, Meribel and Courchevel. The private jets you might see landing there are privately owned and operated flights so do not have the restrictions of a commercially operated flight, which a private jet charter would be. However, it is possible to land a helicopter at these Alpine altiports and this is how many of our client flying into Sion, Samedan, Chambery, Geneva and Annecy choose to arrive closer to their resort.

Ski weekends

Timing is everything when precious time on the slopes is at stake.

Friday. Leave London by private jet charter; be on the slopes within a couple of hours with 2 further full days of skiing ahead of you.

Saturday. Ski (or board) until your heart is content.

Sunday. Enjoy a full day on the empty slopes (when everyone else is on the bus to the airport) before heading back to the UK on your evening private jet flight.
