Jet charter to the ski slopes

Jet charter to the ski slopes

The quickest way to get on piste.

Charter a private jet for your ski trip and enjoy more time at your resort.

Who wants to wait around in an airport for 3 hours? Arrive 10 minutes before your flight departs with not a queue in sight.

No waiting at baggage reclaim to collect your skis or boards. They’ll be on your private jet with you and can be taken directly from the aircraft when you leave.

Fly to the smaller airports nearer your resort and reduce transfer times – or take a helicopter direct to your chalet.

Enjoy flexible departure times to suit you and your party. Leave London on a Friday morning; be on the slopes in 2 hours with 2 further full days of skiing before heading back to the UK on Sunday evening.

Whether it’s a corporate ski weekend or a luxury family break, we want to help you enjoy even more time at your chosen resort.

We’re booking ski flights now through to the end of the season, so don’t miss out on the opportunity of a little bit of luxury and longer on the slopes. Contact us now.

Private jet empty legs

Reduce the cost of private jet charter

Those in the know use ’empty legs’ to reduce the cost of regular private jet charter. If you have a bit of flexibility in your schedule then choosing an empty leg could well be for you.

So what is an empty leg?

Put simply, they are empty flights – due to operate without any passengers, one way, as the aircraft and crew need to reposition back to base or elsewhere for the next flight.

It makes good business sense to have someone on-board sharing some of the cost of the flight, so these empty sectors are offered at a reduced price; a win-win situation and the perfect solution to that last minute business flight or personal trip.

Charter a private jet empty leg through us and you’ll receive the same standard and benefits of private jet travel, both on the ground and in the air, with the added advantage of a more cost effective way to travel.

Contact us for up to date, worldwide empty leg availability or call us now on +44 1293 551244.
