Getting to Val d'Isere

 Your holiday includes our return charter flight from London Gatwick and a transfer to/from resort to meet this flight.  

With the unfortunate demise of Monarch,  we are delighted to confirm that we have successfully  secured an alternative flight program to/from Lyon for the forthcoming Winter. We will be flying with Norwegian,  an award winning airline with one of the youngest and greenest fleets in the world - average aircraft age of just 3.6 years!  

We have been advised of the following provisional times for Feb/March flights (up to 17th March):

D8 9534 LGW (SOUTH TERMINAL) to LYS  07.25/09.55

D8 9535 LYS/LGW 10.55/11.25

However, please do bear in mind that these are provisional and any flight times are always subject to confirmation on your holiday Itinerary.

Buy on board service available.

Upon your arrival at Lyon you will be met by one of our Ski-Val staff and accompanied on your coach journey to resort. We generally only have the one flight so you are not hanging around waiting for lots of different arrivals, the journey is approximately 200km, mostly motorway and approximate transfer time is around 3/3.5 hours dependant on road/traffic and weather conditions.
