In response to high demand last year, SaxonAir has been granted approval to operate flights into ‘Category C’ airports, Chambery, Sion and Innsbruck.
Due to their mountainous position, these airfields can present difficult approach patterns, peculiar weather conditions or require special knowledge of terrain, airfield or terminal area procedures. In order to qualify for approval, our pilots have undertaken special training procedures, flying in a simulator under various configurations and scenarios. This ensures the highest of safety levels are maintained and crew receive excellent situational awareness before arriving at a new airport.
Demand for these destinations in 2009 and 2010 was high, especially during the ski season. Chambery Airport, in particular has experienced recent growth in popularity as a ‘gateway to the French Alps’ and is within easy driving distance to many well known ski resorts.
This recent development further enhances our ability to offer our clients greater choice and flexibility, providing access to a wide range of destinations not serviced by scheduled airlines or other private air charter operators.
For more information about flights to these, or any other destination, please call our operations team on +44 (0)845 1556222.
