Why charter a private jet if you're going skiing? Let us tell you all you need to know.
Let's just get straight into the main reason.....TIME! The main reason people charter private jets in general is for time saving, and it's absolutely no different when it comes to chartering for a skiing holiday.
Chartering a private jet can gain you an entire day on the slopes, not only do you avoid all of the airport check in 3 hours before your flight drama, but flying by private jet means we can fly you closer to your chosen ski resort, ultimately reducing your ground transfer time. Private jets can fly into much smaller, and less accessible airports high In the mountains, so we look for the closest airport to your resort and fly you there.
We thought it would be helpful to do a private jet vs commercial airline comparison, based on getting to St Moritz Ski Resort.

Immediately you can see the time saving element of using a private jet, there are other things to think about like distance from your home to the airport, there are only a few airports in the country from which commercial airlines run flights to Zurich which could be hundreds of miles away, we can pick the closest airport to your house that we can get into, cutting the time down even further. So by this point you're going to be thinking is all sounds great, but what is the cost? Well we wanted to shed some light on what it could cost you to charter a private jet for your ski holiday.
