Famed for its dual hilltop fortifications and centuries-old castle ruins, the chocolate box town of Sion in the southwestern Swiss canton of Valais is the European skiing haven’s best-kept secret. On par with the well-trodden paths of Gstaad, Verbier, Crans-Montana and Zermatt, Sion’s mountains offer slopes far less travelled – unless you’re flying in with Aero, that is.
A one-stop semi-private luxury airline for the most sought-after and exclusive winter escapes across Europe and North America, Aero is now jetting between London Farnborough Airport and Geneva and Nice, as well as being the only airline to fly directly to Sion.
With direct flights available every single day at peak holiday times, you could leave your house at breakfast and be in Verbier, Crans-Montana, or Chambery in time for a fondue lunch – or Gstaad, Zermatt Saas Fee, and Meribel in under two hours. So make the most of the curated in-flight food and beverage offering on board, because you’ll barely be in flight long enough to finish a G&T.
The custom-designed, sleek black jets boast meticulously designed seating for up to 16 guests. Bespoke interiors are accented by hand-stitched seat covers made from Italian leather, while custom-designed lighting techniques and a Bongiovi sound system will leave you feeling indulged and looked after – think the Golden Age of travel (but better). What’s more, the private, crowd-free terminals mean less stress and less time wasted – so you really can leave your work-life baggage at the door.
Inspired by aviation’s most decadent era, Aero provides the first-class air travel of the future, by reimagining the entire experience. The premium seats can be purchased individually, while the personalised, white-glove concierge service can help with other transportation and transfers if needed.
From weekend getaways to hopping between holiday homes and providing a direct route to some of the best winter holiday retreats out there, Aero knows how to get its clients from A to B in style, offering a radically superior travel experience at a fraction of the usual jet-chartering price.
One-way flights with Aero start from £990. Until 31 March 2023, Aero is offering Luxury London readers £200 off their first flight using code LUXURYLND. To book an Aero flight or charter experience, visit aero.com
