The Highest Runway in Europe

The Altiport is famous for having the world’s shortest runway and the highest tarmacked runway in Europe. It enables you to arrive in Courchevel via helicopter from local transport hubs like Geneva or Chambery. Plus you can even charter a private jet to land on the cliff-side runway.

Courchevel Altiport is truly exclusive, only catering to small aircraft due to its 537-metre long runway with an 18.7% gradient. You’ll arrive to an audience as skiers line the surrounding slopes to watch jets and helicopters appear through the mountain landscape.
