From 11 February, just in time for the half-term school holidays, fully vaccinated travellers returning home to the UK will no longer have to take either pre-departure or Day 2 Covid tests.
Many European countries also started 2022 by easing travel restrictions: France, Switzerland and Austria do not require you to self-isolate if you are fully vaccinated and can present a negative test result. This is great news for those wishing to escape to the mountains after the disruption and cancelled trips of the past two winter seasons.
Our varied fleet of private jets can take you to directly to a number of airports only a short distance from most ski resorts, giving you more time to enjoy the snow, whilst also being more comfortable and hygienic than crowded airport terminals and busy commercial flights.
Read on for our roundup of top European resorts that are best reached by private jet.
Located in France’s famous Three Valleys region, Courchevel is often dubbed the world’s skiing capital thanks to its world-class pistes, luxury chalets and Michelin-starred restaurants. We can fly you direct to Chambery Airport, which also offers easy access to other great resorts like Tignes, Val d’Isère and Méribel – or we can arrange a helicopter transfer straight to Courchevel Alitport.
Another skiing hotspot in the French Alps is Megève in the Mont Blanc massif, where skiers can take on impressive downhill runs and cross-country trails and stay in luxury accommodation including two Four Seasons hotels with the recently opened Les Chalets du Mont d’Arbois. While scheduled services typically land at busy Geneva Airport, VOLUXIS can land at smaller, less crowded airports like Grenoble, Chambery, Annecy and Lyon.
St Moritz, Switzerland
Nestled around a lake in the Engadine Valley with some of Switzerland’s best snow, St Moritz is the ultimate European destination for a luxury mountain getaway. A short runway and a challenging mountain approach makes it impossible for commercial airlines to fly direct to the resort’s own airport, Samedan. VOLUXIS can whisk you there quickly and conveniently, giving you more time to hit the slopes and enjoy the area’s excellent après-ski.
Part of Switzerland’s Four Valleys ski area, Verbier’s renowned on- and off-piste skiing and lively nightlife make it a popular European skiing destination. We can fly you by private jet direct to the resort’s closest airport, Sion, which is also just 35 minutes drive from Crans Montana, another scenic resort with dramatic views of the Matterhorn and Mont Blanc.
Located at the foot of Europe’s most iconic summit, the mighty Matterhorn, Zermatt is one of the world’s top ski resorts thanks to its vast terrain and spectacular mountain scenery. VOLUXIS can fly you in comfort and style to experience the highest slopes in Europe with a bespoke private jet charter, landing at Sion Airport or Bern Airport
Nestled in Austria’s breathtaking Arlberg Valley, this exclusive twin resort is known for its luxury hotels, high-end Champagne bars and heated chairlifts, along with miles of scenic and challenging ski routes. VOLUXIS can fly you directly to Innsbruck Airport at a time that suits you.
