Get to Davos in no time
Situated in the heart of the Swiss Alps, Sion Airport - a specialist in international business transfers - has created an effective shuttle service to Davos Stilli Heliport. The route is tailored to business, corporate and private customers who can access the country's popular ski resort, as well as the World Economic Forum (WEF).
Local expert Héli-Alpes has worked in aviation services for more than ten years and owns a large fleet of helicopters. The company runs the Davos route on behalf of Sion, which is a Swiss port of entry with no runway slot requirements.
An all-in-one service
The Davos Heli Shuttle package includes a VIP experience with TAG Aviation, a modern International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations-certified fixed-base operator with maintenance and hangarage facilities for a broad range of jets. In addition, TAG offers 20,000m² of aircraft parking plus 12,000m² of fully equipped hangars that can be easily accessed through a convenient passenger walkway. The airport's private passenger terminal also has three spacious VIP rooms, on-site Swiss customs and immigration centres, valet parking, and business and entertainment facilities.
In under ten minutes, Sion's business aviation passengers can disembark their aircraft and board a helicopter to their destination, avoiding the roads and enjoying stunning mountain vistas, including the famous Matterhorn. Staff focus on ensuring that clients are tranferred smoothly through Sion Airport, creating a perfect alternative to crowded airport transfers - and the journey takes just 60 minutes.
Sion's Davos Heli Shuttle is customisable. Clients can select their flight duration and pick-up location, and have the chance to add multiple landings and take-offs, as well as excursions and tours to their package, which includes a complimentary door-to-door chauffeured car service run by a professional and trusted driver who delivers clients safely to their final destination.
During the WEF, the airport extends its hours of operation to opening between 8am and 8pm; extensions to 10pm are also available. Sion's partnerships with Héli-Alpes and TAG ensure that customers receive seamless travel arrangements that save time and money. They are assured that helicopter services will also be available 24/7, in which a multilingual team and the highest standards of safety will be at their disposal.
Business passengers can save time in several ways: TAG's hangar and parking facilities are always available, and there is no need to spend time waiting at departure gates, as there is only a short distance to travel between the terminal and the runway.
Several multinational companies are based in the commercial centres of Montreux, Vevey and Lausanne, which are close to Sion. If a trip is for pleasure, travellers can access some of the best winter sports terrain within 30 minutes of landing. Private helicopter transfers operate between Sion and Zermatt, Gstaad, Verbier and Crans-Montana, enabling clients to reach popular destinations within 18 minutes.
The airport offers the same services as larger ones in the region, but its smaller size allows for more flexibility and a service -oriented approach. Sion's highly personalised experience helps it to gain the trust of travellers, ensuring loyalty from its clientele. Many of its business aviation passengers have travelled to Sion for many years because of the airport's seamless standard of service.
Once hailed as the 'best-kept secret' in aviation, busy customers have actually taken advantage of Sion's unique location, and its proximity to trade centres and ski resorts for years. With its increasing demand, the airport has committed resources to building hangar facilities and an apron that is dedicated to private and business aviation.
Since June 2016, pilots have also been able to train and qualify for their Category B licence from the European Aviation Safety Agency in an approved simulator centre.
