Chambéry airport is set to raise its winter profile as the gateway to the French Alps with new routes from the UK and a wider range of services this season.
The airline Jet2 is coming back to Chambéry – or Chambéry Savoie Mont Blanc to give it its full name - with scheduled flights from five airports in the UK: Manchester, London Stansted, Leeds, Birmingham and Bristol. Of these five departure points, Bristol and Leeds are new. There will be six flights a week from December 2021 to mid-April 2022. Flights are already available and can be booked via jet2.com
‘We are very pleased to be working with Jet2 again. After the Covid crisis, it is a very positive sign for local tourism. We are looking forward to welcoming British passengers this winter in our airport,’ says Mylène Leuly, Director of Chambéry Savoie Mont Blanc airport.’
Visitors from the UK can also fly to Chambéry with British Airways. BA CityFlyer will be offering regular flights from Southampton and London City.
Operated by VINCI Airports, Chambéry Savoie Mont Blanc airport is the easiest way to reach France’s most popular ski resorts: Paradiski, Les Trois Vallées, Tignes, Val d’Isère, Les Arcs, La Rosière and many more. It’s a small airport, meaning that passengers will be swiftly on their way to their final destinations.
In 2019, around 186,000 passengers flew to the airport via the dedicated business aviation terminal, its nine scheduled European flights and its ski charter flights operated by a dozen tour operators, mainly British, Scandinavian and Russian.
