Huge Leap in Private Plane Charters into Alpine Ski Resorts


Requests for private charter planes into Alpine ski resorts have risen by an astonishing 336% according to online charter specialists, Victor.


Chartering a private plane is a convenient way to get into resort from the major airports serving the Alps, and discerning holidaymakers have long been taking advantage of the convenience of this transfer method.


The new data from Victor came from looking at all of the requests for private charters into European airports that offer transfers into ski resorts.


The biggest day of the season for private plane charters so far was, unsurprisingly, following the fresh snowfall over the Alps at the beginning of last month. On the day after heavy snow fell on 3rd January this year, Victor saw a huge 155% jump in requests for private planes into Alpine ski resorts.


It’s also hardly surprising that the French Alps was revealed as the most popular destination for those looking to jet into resort in style, with Chambery seeing the most activity, being the closest airport to a number of top European resorts.

In addition, the data also revealed that Val D’Isere is still a huge contender in terms of the luxury ski market, despite it garnering something of a reputation for unruly drunken behavior of late.


CEO and founder of Victor said: “The ski season is well and truly upon us, what with a significant number of private jet charter requests coming from our members for travel to key ski destinations like Chambery and Val D’Isere,”


He added: “Flying private with Victor means avoiding the busy main hubs and having the run of numerous regional airports putting you within an hour of most resorts. Thanks to Victor’s end-to-end booking service, fliers can be on the slopes quicker than ever – even if they book at the last moment. The time saved can often add an extra day’s skiing.”


And what could be better than an extra day on the slopes?
