The UK’s largest ski holiday tour operator Crystal is launching a direct Exeter Airport to Chambery service next winter, cutting travel times for skiers and boarders based in the South West of England to some of the leading resorts in the French Alps.
The first departures from Exeter Airport will start on 23 December 2017 and run through until 31 March 2018.
Many of France’s most famous ski resorts can be reached more quickly and easily from Chambery than from Geneva, including Val d’Isère, Tignes, Courchevel, Meribel, Val Thorens amongst others.
“We look forward to working with Crystal Ski Holidays from December and know that the skiers of the South West will welcome these opportunities to fly from their local airport to Chambery with Thomson Airways,” said Matt Roach Exeter Airport’s Managing Director.
Crystal currently has a variety of early booking offers and limited availability holiday deals such as Crystal Ski Plus packages from £508 per person (includes direct flights from Exeter, transfers, local lift pass, ski/board hire or ski carriage, a week’s accommodation at Grand Bois apartments in La Tania departing 24 February 2018). Book by 30 November 2017.
There are also reduced price children places on every departure date.
In addition the Crystal Adaptive programme which provides accessible ski holidays for people with disabilities offers a selected range of resorts and accommodation in La Plagne (France) with direct flights from Exeter Airport.
“We’re working with the charity Disability Snowsport UK, selected adaptive ski schools, which provide specialist tuition and equipment for both beginners and advanced skiers, and selected appropriate hotels,” said a crystal spokesperson.
“Crystal already offers the largest choice of ski holidays, but we are determined to keep improving our range of holidays for all types of skiers. This has led us to introduce several new ski resorts and an even wider range of regional flight options to cater for our loyal as well as new holidaymakers,” said Crystal’s managing director Chris Logan.
