All-business-class French airline La Compagnie is now offering travellers on its new seasonal New York-Nice route a direct helicopter service to the French Riviera. In partnership with Monacair, travellers can fly from Nice Côte d’Azur Airport (NCE) to Monaco Heliport (MCM) in 7 minutes, avoiding an otherwise traffic-heavy road transfer.
Passengers fly in brand-new Airbus H130 helicopters, with seating for six passengers in air-conditioned comfort and extra luggage room to boot. It’s the perfect way for business travellers – or any traveler – to optimise their stay in the Principality of Monaco, with fast track security and only 1.5 hours required before airplane departure in Nice.
The Monacair helipad in Nice is located right next to the La Compagnie gate for a smooth and stress-free transfer to and from the airplane.
The new partnership also offers complimentary drop-off and pick-up service in VIP minivans for all La Compagnie flights booked from or to Monaco. With the convenience of a single reservation via La Compagnie, the cost per traveler for a one-way helicopter flight between Nice and Monaco is US$170; cost per traveller for a round-trip flight is US$300.
Jean Charles Périno, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for La Compagnie said: “This new service offers a world of convenience and reliability for our travellers – and that is what luxury is all about these days.”
