There is a growing trend of people flying to the Alps in a private jet and this is easy to see why. Flying in a private jet is the ultimate in luxury and convenience while there are few destinations as beautiful and glamorous as the Alps along with the superb skiing opportunities here. Here is a closer look at why the Alps is a common destination for private jets.
Perhaps the most obvious reason that people are flying in private jets is the luxury. Ski holidays to the Alps are luxurious by nature but this can be enhanced greatly by flying on a chartered jet - a form of transportation associated with the rich and the famous.
In addition to the luxury facilities you will find on board a private jet, you also benefit from added peace, quiet and comfort so that you can arrive feeling fresh and ready to conquer the slopes. Often when you fly with a major airline to a ski resort, you will arrive feeling stressed having endured an uncomfortable flight and this is not the best way to start a vacation let alone an active trip such as a ski holiday.
It is possible to reach the Alps via train, but you would not get the same mesmerising aerial views of this truly breathtaking part of the world. Flying in a private jet will showcase the great beauty of the Alps and allow you to arrive in style at your destination airport.
Flying in a private jet is also much more convenient than via a major airline. This is because check-in and security are much quicker and easier, you are not restricted to set arrival and departure times and you can choose a departure airport closer to your home as you are not restricted to the major UK airports. Not only this, but you will be able to fly into the private jet airports close to the various resorts found throughout the Alps to minimise transfer time and maximise time spent on the slopes.
While chartering a private jet may not be the most affordable form of transportation, it is now much more affordable than it was previously through services that allow you to charter a jet one way. You can also benefit from return leg flights which are available at much lower costs (although there will not be as much flexibility).
These are the main reasons that more and more people are chartering a private jet to the Alps. It allows you to arrive in style feeling fresh and ready to hit the slopes along with a great deal of added convenience over flying with a major airline which can be stressful particularly when you have a lot of your ski gear with you.
