Surrounded by the Alpine peaks of the Rhone Alpes region, and just across the border from Italy and Switzerland, it’s easy to see why skiers and snowboarders snap up Chambery flights.

When winter arrives and dumps snow on the slopes, sporty types also fly to Chambery to access Megeve and Tignes, which are just two hours away by road.

Chambery airport is predominately used by ski charters operating throughout the winter season...
There are no year-round services from the UK, however tour operators such as Thomson, Thomas Cook and Jet2 operated the seasonal departures from airports across the UK.
You can fly from London’s Gatwick airport, or from Edinburgh, Newcastle, Manchester, Leeds Bradford, East Midlands, Birmingham, Exeter, Cardiff and Birmingham. These flights take around one-and-a-half hours.
But with no connecting flights through the French capital and limited seasonal services, you should consider flying to Lyon or Geneva instead during the summer months.

Booked your cheap flight to Chambery? Excellent. It’s time to find an ideal place to stay (and save money, of course)…
Luxury lodges, catered chalets, spa hotels, self-catering apartments – the accommodation scene in France’s excellent ski resorts is superb, but often comes with a hefty price tag. Compare hotels and book well in advance to secure a bargain by the slopes.
If you’re going down the DIY route by finding your own cheap flights (as opposed to booking package ski holidays), why not bookend your mountain adventures with a night in Chambery or at the edge of Lac du Bourget? The largest natural lake in France is close to the airport. A spot of waterside tranquillity could provide the perfect end to your skiing trip (and prove very handy if you have an early-morning flight home).
In Chambery, where the food and wine is as pleasing as the grand architecture, hotels are plentiful and rates reasonable. Don’t miss the Fountain of Elephants – a charming landmark in the city’s historic centre.
