Private jet to the slopes


As we head into the 2011/2012 ski season, demand for private jet charter to the ski resorts of Europe is high despite current economic uncertainty. On top of this, flying habits have changed and cost is becoming an ever increasing factor. Clients are opting to share aircraft charters with friends and family in order to minimise costs whilst others with more flexible travel dates make use of private jet empty sectors. Additionally more and more flyers are opting to travel to airfields where aircraft are based in order to reduce positioning costs.  


Whilst schedules are busy and aircraft are flying, it is still not plain sailing. In the current market where cost is usually the deciding factor the industry has had to reduce costs and take even finer margins to get aircraft flying.  


Execflyer’s Head of Charter Sales Jamie Dickson said “In today’s highly competitive market, we are having to reduce margins in order to win business. In order to offer clients the best possible air charter deal, our team are constantly monitoring the market and shopping around on behalf of customers to ensure we can consistently  deliver the best value”.


This year Execflyer expect to have one of their busiest winters, with Sion and Chambery already proving to be top of the destination hit list. For 2011/2012 they continue their partnership with Verbier Exclusive to offer clients a seamless experience from the UK to Verbier allowing access to one of the regions top chalet providers at discounted rates. New this year is the addition of all inclusive packages offering accommodation and private jet flights at great rates. For more information please visit the website at
