Flying to the Swiss Alps
Geneva is without a doubt the busiest entry hub for those wishing to access the Alps by air. Served by over 30 routes from 23 UK airports, its central location and first-class public transport system and excellent road network make it a popular choice with travellers not only to Switzerland but also to France, Germany, Austria and Italy. Zurich and Bern also provide excellent entry points to resorts in the north and west of Switzerland.
Even closer to some of Switzerland's biggest name resorts, and just 30 minutes drive from the 4 Vallees, lesser-known Sion is set to be back on the UK skiers' map next season (2017/18) with the introduction of direct flights from six UK hubs by ski-focused airline PowdAir. Flights will launch in December 2017. Swiss will also be resuming its flights from Heathrow to Sion from February 3-24 2018.
