Private jet charter to Paris

Famous for its history, culture, gastronomy and the headquarters for many major international companies, Paris is one of the most important cities for tourism and business in the world. Geographically in the centre of Europe, it is the busiest destination for private jet travel in France.

Private jet charter to the Cote d'Azur

After Paris, the glamorous French Riviera (or Cote d'Azur) in the South of France is the second most important French region for private jet travel. With VIP events such as the Monaco Grand Prix and Cannes Film Festival taking place in the area, and a magnet for property investors and luxury travellers from all over the world, the area is busy all year, but particularly between May and September.

Nice is open 24-hours and can handle jets of all sizes, up to VIP converted airliners. Cannes Mandelieu is an exclusive private jet airport and well-positioned for the Cannes Film Festival.

Private jet charter to the French Alps

France is home to some of Europe’s premier ski resorts, taking a large share of the Alps mountain range within its borders. Mont Blanc on the border with Italy is the tallest peak in Europe. The country also shares an alpine border with Switzerland.

Megève, Courchevel, Val d'Isère, Meribel and Chamonix are some of the French resorts that are particularly popular with private jet travellers.

Private jet airports in the French Alps ski resorts

Chambéry Airport is very popular for private jet flights to French ski resorts, offering 24-hour access and its runway can handle private jets of all sizes.

Courchevel has its own airport just minutes from the resort, but its short and sloping runway means it is only available to limited aircraft types and helicopters.

Grenoble Airport and Annecy Airport also offer good promixity to some ski resorts, and being slightly further away, can offer better availability in very busy periods – and are less vulnerable to adverse weather conditions.

Many private jet travellers heading to French resorts also fly into Geneva or Sion Airports, across the Swiss border, with a ground or helicopter transfer to their resort.
