Courchevel airport and private jet flights

Courchevel Airport by private charter

Overview summary

Courchevel Airport officially known as Courchevel Altiport - is a small airport situated just a few minutes from the ski resort of Courchevel, in the Trois Vallées region of France. Very popular in the winter, many clients want to take a private jet to Courchevel.

The airport is directly accessible by helicopter and its runway is able to be used by a limited number of light private aircraft. However at PrivateFly, we recommend clients fly by private jet into Chambery Airport or Grenoble Airport or other nearby airports, then transfer to Courchevel by helicopter.

Courchevel Altiport History

Created in 1961, Courchevel Altiport is distinctive for its short and steep runway (537 metres long) and its altitude - it is the highest runway in Europe.

Given its challenging location and short runway, the French Aviation Authority (DGAC) restricts most commercially-chartered fixed wing private flights, in or out of Courchevel. Private owners can land there in their own aircraft (ie not commercially-chartered by a third party) - as different safety regulations around landing then apply.

Most clients looking to reach Courchevel by private charter will arrive by private jet to Chambery or Grenoble, then transfer to Courchevel via helicopter.
