The world’s most stunning airport approach
Nice Cote d’Azur airport has just won the international poll of the most scenic airport approaches organised by an online booking service for private jets beating, among others, the airports of London City, Los Angeles LAX and Rio de Janeiro.
The company consulted a panel of international experts from the travel industry and seasoned travellers who came up with a short-list of airports which were then subject to a public vote. From almost 5,000 votes recorded, the majority chose the Nice airport and its fabulous view on landing. Voters talked about its “sublime beauty”, the “richness of its range of colours at a glance” and the “extraordinary view of the Cote d’Azur”.
From a member of the panel and editor of Aviation Magazine Altitudes Europe, who voted for Nice Cote d’Azur, the airport offers “a beautiful approach either from North East over the Alps then Monaco or West with the red Esterel mountains on the left and blue Med on the right”.
Nice Cote d’Azur Airport is a worthy winner indeed. The breathtaking approach embodies the timeless glamour and character of the Cote d’Azur, you couldn’t be anywhere else. It offers a winning combination of blue sea, sky and mountains, along with glimpses of the stunning homes, yachts and helicopters buzzing below.
Dominique Thillaud, Chairman of the Board for Cote d’Azur Airports, adds: “We are extremely proud that our Nice hub has been voted the most stunning approach in the world in 2014. This is an indisputable sign of international recognition that brings to mind all the attractiveness of our region. Indeed, it is the Cote d’Azur’s exceptional setting between sea and mountains that visitors from all over the globe come to see, passing through our airports for both business and pleasure”.
