Limitations and Restrictions

There are several restrictions which mean many private jets cannot land at Courchevel including; the short runway 537 metres, the runway gradient as seen in the image above and video below. the no go around approach which means pilots only get one chance at landing. Are you travelling from outside the Schengen Area? Courchevel does not have customs, meaning flights originating outside mainland Europe are not possible.

Who Can Land At Courchevel?

For a private jet to land at Courchevel they must meet strict criteria including; be flying from inside the Schengen Area and have sufficient performance to land on a short runway. Most charter aircraft which have good enough performance will legally require a longer runway. However, there are some prop aircraft such as a Pilatus PC12, Partenavia P68 and Aviator TP600 and even these may require strict weight limits to safely operate.  Furthermore, the weather is always a factor worth considering at Courchevel for both private jets and helicopters. There are some small private jets which can fly into Courchevel with 4 people, our team would be very happy to explain more.
