Courchevel is a world-renowned ski resort part of the Three Valleys ski domain. It is known as a luxury paradise due to many Michelin-starred restaurants, high-end hotels, chalets and especially it’s glamorous nightlife and designer boutiques.

Courchevel is divided into five villages located at different altitudes. Saint-Bon, Courchevel Le Praz (1300), Courchevel 1550, Courchevel 1650 and Courchevel 1850. All these villages are linked together by the tracks.

Courchevel 1850 is the highest, largest and most prestigious village in the resort. Created in 1946, in order to offer affordable leisure to the beneficiaries of paid vacation, Courchevel 1850 has today become the winter residence of the jetset.

Travel to Courchevel by Private Jet

Due to the short length of the runway (525m) and its uphill gradient; the steep approach; and the 'no go around' procedure, there are strict rules for private aircraft landing directly at Courchevel. Private jet owners can use the runway for small and medium jets, only if they are flying themselves in their own aircraft.

For those flying by private charter, there are more enhanced safety regulations – which limit access to the runway. AK Private Jets offers clients private jet charter into Chambery or other nearby airports, with a helicopter transfer directly to Courchevel Altiport if required.
