11 May Flying to Val d’Isere
There are lots of options when travelling to Val d’Isere but the most common is for groups to fly.
The best airport for Val d’Isere is Geneva. It lies 3 hours’ drive from the resort, allowing for a relaxed journey with breaks for a meal or overnight.
Geneva has a good choice of carriers from the UK, with British Airways, Swiss Air and EasyJet all flying in from mainland airports. You can leave from most of the London airports, including London City (with Swiss Air). From Heathrow you have the choice of BA or Swiss; Gatwick and Luton are served by EasyJet, who also fly to Geneva from Bristol, Liverpool, Manchester and Edinburgh.
If you’re a Channel Islands resident, Blue Islands has flights from both Guernsey and Jersey to Geneva every Tuesday and Thursday year-round. They make no charge for baggage, including excess baggage, so all your ski gear flies free. Nor do they charge for credit or debit card bookings, ticket changes on the same route, or for pre-booking your preferred seat on the plane. Very civilised!
There are other airport option, Chambery and Lyon. Most choose to fly from Geneva due to multiple flight route and time options daily from around the world.
Arrival and departures days at Le Chardon are on each Sunday. Most other operators offer Saturday to Saturday service which allows your arrival and departure day to be quieter: from the airports to the roads and most importantly the slopes on your last day skiing.
