Our Whitetracks contact kept us informed and our transfer went without a glitch
There are many variables concerned with your arrival at the airport and your helicopter transfer to Zermatt. Firstly operations are dependent on whether you are arriving by Private Jet, Chartered or Scheduled flights!
Zermatt Helicopters know the importance of time and to help you utilise this precious time on your holiday in Zermatt we highly recommend the assistance of a helicopter to maximise your opportunities. Whitetracks can arrange for you to arrive in Zermatt in true style.
A helicopter airport transfer not only saves you a considerable amount of time that you would have otherwise lost in driving hours or possibly even more hours sitting in those hectic transfer day traffic jams. A helicopter airport transfer also provides an exciting and pictorial 'sightseeing trip', imagine the stunning views of the Swiss Alps from the air, a truly amazing, thrilling and exhilarating panoramic bird's eye view of the mountains as you are whisked at over 200km/h to your chosen destination Zermatt. A breath-taking experience guaranteed and quite clearly the perfect start or finale to a perfect ski holiday.
Please contact Zermatt Helicopters with all inquiries to check helicopter availability and costs.
Please note: without prior and special permission Swiss helicopters are not allowed to fly other countries internal flights i.e. French airports to French ski resorts, this also applies vice versa French helicopters are not allowed to fly internal Swiss flights. However, they are allowed to fly from one country to another. A prime example of this would be Geneva Contrin International airport (Genf) in Switzerland, which is a major gateway not only to the Swiss Alps but also to the French Alps.
Examples of country to country flights would include; Geneva airport to Courchevel, Swiss airport to French ski resort or Courchevel to St Moritz - French ski resort to Swiss ski resort. When a helicopter crosses country borders it may be necessary for the helicopter to briefly stop somewhere for customs on the way to the final destination. Courchevel Heliport has its own Duane (Customs) so if the destination resort in the different country has its own customs i.e. St Moritz (Samedan) it can be a direct non-stop flight. If the destination resort in the different country does not have its own customs i.e. Zermatt the helicopter will have to fly somewhere that does have customs en-route i.e. Sion before reaching its final destination Zermatt.
