Last winter Snowjet launched the only scheduled service from the UK to Sion Airport. It proved so popular that this winter they have increased the frequency of the London Stansted-Sion flight to three times a week.
From Sion, Switzerland's largest ski area, the 4 Valleys, is easily accessed: Nendaz and Veysonnaz are the closest (20 minutes) followed by Thyon (30 minutes), and Verbier (45 minutes). Sion is also the local airport for Crans Montana (35 minutes), Grimentz (35 minutes), Villars (45 minutes), Saas-Fee (1h15) and Zermatt (1h40)
Snowjet flights to Sion are operated on Titan Airways BAE 146 aircraft with 80 seats. Fewer seats on board means more leg room and less time spent waiting at the baggage reclaims. The flight also includes free bus transfers between Sion Airport and Sion bus/train station.
Flight reservations can be made online with fares starting from £79 one way including taxes.
Snowjet also operates flights between London Standsted and Chambery Airport in the French Alps. Chambery is the local airport for ski resorts of Val d'Isere, Meribel, Couchevel, Tignes, La Plagne, Les Arcs, and Val Thorens.
