Buying a chalet or apartment in your favourite ski resort in the French Alps unlocks the door to Europe’s most popular winter destination. The ability to hop on a flight to your alpine retreat whenever it suits will make you the envy of all and sundry. If you live in the north of England this will become even easier after Yorkshire-based airline Jet2.com announced it is adding more flights using larger aircraft to Geneva from Leeds Bradford Airport in winter 2017/18. Steve Heapy, Chief Executive Officer of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “Geneva is a very popular route from Leeds Bradford and there are now more opportunities to get there and reach the best slopes”.

Renowned as the gateway to a number of top resorts given its close proximity to the French border, the Swiss city of Geneva offers convenient access to some of the finest slopes and facilities in Europe. In less than 1 hour you’ll be able to reach your pad in the quintessentially French village La Clusaz. While property buyers in a number of other top French destinations – Samoëns, Saint Gervais-les-Bains, Les Gets, Chamonix, Megève, Flaine – will have the keys in their front door in under an hour and a half after leaving Geneva Airport.
These new flights have already gone on sale, so you can get your trips booked in nice and early for the following season. The new schedule includes an additional flight every Sunday, allowing the airline to operate up to seven flights to Geneva every week; including four take-offs over the weekend period. In terms of passenger numbers the increased service will put an extra 10,000 bums on seats from 16th December, right through the ski season to April 2018.
