Heading to a La Plagne resort to ski this winter? If you’re considering flying, then you need to ask yourself, which airport is the best one to fly into and get a transfer from? You could save yourself time and money if you get it right. Geneva Airport is probably the most convenient one as it’s relatively close and has a huge choice of flights from many destinations, but you do have other options.
La Plagne Transfers are available from 3 different airports. Our most popular service is from Geneva Airport to La Plagne, which makes stops at Belle Plagne, Plagne Centre, Plagne Soleil & Plagne 1800. Our Grenoble shuttles only go as far as Aime, the transport hub on the valley floor. Our Grenoble to Aime page explains how to get from Aime to La Plagne. From Lyon Airport, we only go as far as Moutiers, the town next to Aime.
