Flying to the French Alps

France is the most popular skiing destination for UK travellers and there’s a good choice of direct UK flights to the main entry hubs in the French Alps, from where you can travel onward to your destination by rental car or a by a growing number of ski shuttle coach transfers. Geneva in Switzerland, with its excellent onward rail connections, as well as rental car and coach options, also serves as an excellent entry hub for the French Alps. Alternatively, the resorts of Briancon/Serre Chevalier and Montgenèvre, nestled close to the Italian border, can be accessed via Turin airport either by the good N94 road across the mountains or by train and bus from Turin.
