Flight & travel information

Here at Le Ski we charter our own flights on Sundays.
We also operate our own transfers direct from Chambery airport. 


Why would anyone choose to travel to the French Alps on a Saturday? On Sundays the roads are much quieter and airports much calmer, leading to smoother journeys and more relaxed travellers. You also get to ski blissfully quiet pistes on Saturday while everyone else is in a traffic jam! We fly from Gatwick or Manchester to Chambery, the closest airport to the French Alps. Catering is buy-on-board for both flights.


Please note our departure dates are Tuesdays from 13th December to 3rd January inclusive. 
 

Inclusive transfers

80 minutes to La Tania
90 minutes to Courchevel 
2 hours to Val d'Isere
 

Please note that we are unable to supply car seats for children on the coaches but that the airlines will carry your own car seat.
