“The airport, which prides itself for speed and getting people through it fast and with Easyjet flights from Gatwick to Klagenfurt from skiers can be on the slopes within two hours of landing at the airport,” said a spokesperson for Klagenfurt Airport.
The free transfers offer, available to participating hotels in Schladming -Dachstein (pictured) and Nassfeld means that parties can choose between stays of three nights (Wednesday to Saturday), four nights (Saturday to Wednesday) or a week.
