Eastern Europe on the rise as winter hotspot for private jet-setters
New Eastern European destinations proving increasingly popular amongst private flyers
Luxaviation UK is announcing this year’s European winter hotspots, with new Eastern European destinations proving increasingly popular amongst private flyers.
Whilst Geneva and Lyon remain the most popular destinations for access to the Alps, and Frankfurt attracts visitors to its Christmas markets, Luxaviation UK is reporting a significant increase in flight requests to Eastern European airports such as Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport, Slovenia; Sofia Airport, Bulgaria and Skopje Airport in Macedonia.
George Galanopoulos, Managing Director, Luxaviation UK, says: “Eastern Europe is definitely on the rise as a winter destination for our customers. As well as quicker access to the quieter slopes where there is always good snow cover, customers enjoy the historical village-style locations, traditional drink and cuisine and really stunning scenery.
“In the past few weeks, we have provided more quotes than ever before to the region. Ljubljana provides access to the Pohorje Mountains, a favorite for night skiing; Sofia is only a short drive to the popular Bansko resort in the Pirin Mountains and Skopje is just 90 minutes from Popova Sapka where excellent snow cover is virtually guaranteed between January and March.”
Luxaviation UK’s top ten winter destinations for the Winter 2017-18 season are:
1. Geneva, Switzerland
2. Lyon, France
3. Frankfurt, Germany
4. Oslo, Norway
5. Sofia, Bulgaria
6. Skopje, Macedonia
7. Innsbruck, Austria
8. Helsinki, Finland
