Cannes Film Festival & Monaco Grand Prix by private jet
The last few days of May each year see the Cannes Film Festival overlap with the Monaco Grand Prix. And when you combine Film and Formula 1 on the glamorous Cote d'Azur, the result is Europe's peak weekend for private jets.
For the fastest and most direct way to reach these events, charter a private jet to Nice or Cannes, with a private helicopter charter to Monaco for the Grand Prix.
This is an exceptionally busy period for private jet and helicopter demand in Europe, seeing more than double the usual flight volumes in the area. Airports are often as maximum capacity, with slots and aircraft parking hard to come by. That's why we always recommend clients to book as far in advance as possible, to ensure availability and best prices.
Private jet airports for Monaco & the Cote d'Azur
Nice Cote d'Azur Airport is the biggest airport in the area and the most popular for private jets. It is open 24-hours and its longer runway can handle aircraft of all sizes, up to converted VIP airliners.
But for those looking for a discreet arrival, Cannes Mandelieu is a dedicated private jet airport, just 7km from the Palais des Festivals. After a runway renovation in 2016, it can now handle some larger jets.
