The closest airport to La Plagne is either Chambery or Lyon, with the former being within 1.5 hours of the resort. Both Grenoble and Geneva are also options but transfer time can be over three hours during peak travel time. Some visitors use cheap flight options to Milan Malpensa airport in Italy, but this is only a viable option if you are getting a very cheap seat and are willing to travel for several hours. Also, if you fly into one of the Italian airports you will have to travel through the Mt Blanc tunnel to get to La Plagne as all the mountain roads and passes are closed during the winter. We recommend that you book an airport transfer from your relevant airport. Some people also consider the option of hiring a car. There are facilities at all the airports.
