Airport ups its cool factor by growing its ski offeringJune 9, 2017
Skiers will be able to take to the piste from Yorkshire thanks to a new route from Doncaster Sheffield Airport.
The new winter route from Crystal Ski Holidays to Chambéry Savoie Mont Blanc Airport in the Rhone-Alps region in France, will take off on December 23rd with once a week flights from their Yorkshire base.
Steve Gill, Doncaster Sheffield Airport’s chief executive, said: “This is great news for skiers from across the region. We are delighted to be growing our winter ski offering and provide passengers with more choice for skiing routes to popular destinations.
“Given how close it is to Mont Blanc, Chambéry offers Yorkshire winter sports enthusiasts’ easy access to some of the finest slopes and facilities the world has to offer.
“I can’t wait to try out this new route and I’m sure that lots of people will be making the most of this new addition from DSA.”
The Savoie Mont Blanc region boasts some 17 ski areas, over 110 resorts and 4,800 km of slopes offering a range of holidays for all abilities. It includes the world famous resorts of Courchevel, Val d’Isère, Méribel and Val Thorens, resorts which are just over 60 miles away from the airport.
Chris Logan, managing director of Crystal said “We already offer the largest choice of ski holidays at good value, but we’re determined to keep improving our range of holidays for all types of skiers. We’re delighted to be adding this new route from Doncaster Sheffield Airport for our loyal and new holidaymakers.”
Chambéry offers wider tourism options being next to Lake Bourget, offering breath taking views through many walking routes as well a historical and culturally focussed city centre.
