PowdAir flights go on sale

14 Jun, 2017 by Investors In Property
We’ve mentioned PowdAir a few times over the last few months; the new airline will be flying to Sion from various airports across the UK and Europe as of December this year, and we’re pretty excited about it. We’re delighted to see that as of the end of May, next season’s flights are now officially on sale!

The PowdAir concept is based on keeping tickets at a fairly standard rate, mostly coming in at around £145 including hold luggage and ski or snowboard carriage. At their most expensive, flights will only cost £155; the airline are dedicated to keeping peak week price hikes to a minimum, in spite of the common practice of increasing prices when demand is highest.

Whilst airlines like EasyJet fly into Geneva at incredibly low rates during the quieter weeks, the additional cost for baggage and ski carriage can bring the price of even a £50 flight up to well over £100. The additional convenience of flying straight into Sion makes PowdAir a reasonable alternative to the main flights into Geneva.

For resorts in the Valais, the transfer time from Sion Airport to places like Zermatt, Verbier, Grimentz and Saas Fee is so much shorter that it’s worth considering even if the full price of a Geneva flight works out slightly cheaper. Plus PowdAir do transfers too, so your whole journey will be as easy as 123.

In fact, PowdAir have thought of almost everything in their quest to make going skiing easy; the only thing you’ll need to worry about is getting to your airport of choice. The airline even anticipated frequent flyers, and offer a choice of three, six or unlimited return transfer packages that’ll save you a whole lot of money getting to and from Sion Airport.

It’s worth noting that the transparent rates mean that peak week flights are booking up fast, with families that go to the Alps during school holidays already thinking ahead to next year’s ski trip. While last minute types might lose out during February half-term, PowdAir will be running flights regularly throughout the winter season.
