Ending on a High
A tour group of 16 were travelling through Switzerland and wanted to make some last minute changes to their travel plans to see if they could fit in some skiing. The travel agent found that Zermatt would be the best option, and got in touch with us to help get them from Vevey to Zermatt and make their dream a reality.
With no direct flights available via scheduled services and with the train services taking far too long, our local office in Geneva needed to find an option that met the strict budget. After contacting all the operators in the region we found there were no helicopters large enough to seat all of the touring party available. However, we were able to source either two large helicopters, or three smaller ones within budget. The client chose the most cost effective solution of three helicopters and then asked us to ensure the group still felt like they were travelling together. Once told, the tour group were eagerly awaiting their mode of transportation so we organised for the three helicopters to arrive in convoy across the beautiful waters of Lake Geneva to ensure the group could get some great photographs. Once on board, the passengers could take full advantage of the panoramic windows and take in the breath-taking views of the Swiss lakes, mountains and landscape below, especially as Zermatt is set at the foot of the famous Matterhorn Mountain. The trip took only 35 minutes as opposed to the three hours it would have taken on the train ensuring their time was well spent enjoying the slopes.
THE FINER DETAILS
FLIGHT REPRESENTATION: At all times, we had an experienced charter expert on the ground and at the landing zone where they were on hand to greet the group and ensure they were in the best position for the arrival of the aircraft.
THE FINISHING TOUCHES: To add the finishing touch, our charter expert provided the touring group with local maps to help them pick out the best sights on their journey.
