Flights to Chambery or Geneva from 13 UK airports

Transfer Times

  • Chambery airport: approx. 2 hours 45 mins by coach
  • Geneva airport: approx. 3 hours 45 mins by coach 

There is a traffic light system for the Tarentaise Valley. This system controls and slows down the traffic, stopping traffic sitting in dangerous places, like tunnels, where rocks can fall and to make snow clearing easier when it is snowing. This can impact your transfer time, meaning you may arrive into resort later and be leaving for the airport earlier. 

Transfers may be longer during bad weather conditions or French school holidays. French school holidays span 21 Dec 24 - 06 Jan 25, 08 Feb - 10 Mar 25 and 05 Apr - 05 May 25.
