Private Jet To Lapland

Lapland is Finland’s most northern region and attracts thousands of visitors each year. Perfect for Christmas trips or romantic getaways, visiting during winter is nothing short of magical. There’s no better way to start (and end) your trip than taking a private jet to Lapland.

Lapland Weather

With Lapland being in the arctic circle, temperatures between December and April stay below 0°C. With the best activities in Lapland being outdoors its essential you wrap up warm throughout your trip. Across the whole region there is so much to do, some of our favourites include; downhill and cross country Skiing, snow mobile safaris, ice fishing, dog sledding, meeting reindeer to name a few.

Even though there are so many amazing things to do in Lapland, our highlight has to be the incredible Aurora Borealis. Best seen from towns in the north which have low levels of light pollution such as Levi or Ylläs. You can even stay in an igloo room and see the amazing scenes from the privacy of your bed.

Lapland Airports

The main airports serving Lapland are Rovaniemi, which is the capital of the region & Kittila. However, other airports serve smaller towns and connect the expansive region. With the flight time from London to Rovaniemi around 3 hours, we would recommend a Super Light Jet or larger for flights to Lapland. For a large family a Midsize private jet would also be a fantastic choice giving more room and a stand up cabin. Whichever aircraft you choose, flying to Lapland by private jet will reduce the travel time and increase your comfort.

When flying to cold regions, the likely hood of aircraft de-icing measures being required increases. Our private jet charter experts will help advise you on de-icing measures including arranging a hanger for your plane if necessary. Putting your plane in a hanger can reduce and sometimes remove the need for aircraft de-icing.

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.

Alternative Airports to Courchevel
