Cote d'Azur & French Riviera by Private Jet

It's no surprise that the stunning Cote d'Azur is one of Europe's private jet charter hotspots, particularly in the summer months but also for business travel, events and second-home owners all year round.

Private jet airports in the Cote d'Azur & French Riviera

There are several airport options in the South of France which cater for private jet travellers heading to the Cote d'Azur.

Private jet customers have a choice of airports across the area. Nice Cote d'Azur Airport is the biggest, open 24 hours and accommodates the largest jets and VIP airliners. But there are also a number of smaller airports along the coast.

Cannes Mandelieu Airport is the next busiest after Nice, a dedicated private jet airport popular with those flying into events in Cannes, or as a discreet alternative to Nice for VIPs and high profile figures.  

St Tropez La Mole is the closest airport to the popular resort of St Tropez but travellers from the UK or other countries outside the EU Schengen area cannot land there, as it has no passport control. So we recommend Toulon-Hyeres as a nearby alternative.

Riviera Airport is a small private airport just across the border in Italy (also known as Albenga Airport), catering for light jets and turboprops - and can be a useful alternative for travellers to Monaco or destinations close to the border.

See our blog post: Should I land at Nice or Cannes?

Private helicopter transfers are also available for flights between destinations on the French Riviera and between Nice and Cannes Airports and Monaco.

Private jet options to the Cote d'Azur

Legacy 600 private jet to Ibiza

Private jets of all types and sizes fly in and out of the Cote d'Azur in the summer months. From light jets to large long range jets - popular for their performance and comfort, as well as their range. Many of the flights originate from within Europe, but Nice Cote d'Azur Airport has a long runway, so can accommodate long range jets on longer flights, from other parts of the world.

As demand for private flights to the South of France is so high in the summer months, we'd recommend booking ahead to secure your choice of aircraft and airport slot.

Cannes Film Festival & Monaco Grand Prix

At the end of May, the Cannes Film Festival and Monaco Grand Prix both usually take place in the Cote d'Azur, along with many other associated events - creating one of Europe's busiest periods for private jet charter. 

Cannes Film Festival and the Monaco Grand Prix

The most seamless way to arrive at these events is to book a private jet to Nice or Cannes, then avoid the ground traffic with a private helicopter transfer to Monaco or Cannes harbour.

We advise clients looking to fly over this period to book ahead, to ensure the best prices and preferred itinerary - as slot availability can be limited for last minute flights.
