The all business-class boutique airline La Compagnie has launched a new partnership with Monaco-based helicopter company, Monacair. The new collaboration will provide travelers with a direct connection from Nice to Monaco, making travel to the French Riviera quick and seamless.
In less than seven minutes, passengers can fly between Nice Côte d'Azur Airport and Monaco Heliport. Passengers will fly in the brand-new Airbus H130 helicopters, with seating for six passengers in air-conditioned comfort and extra luggage room. The Monacair helipad in Nice is located right next to the La Compagnie gate for a smooth transfer to and from the airplane.
The new partnership also offers complimentary drop-off and pick-up service in VIP minivans for all La Compagnie flights booked from or to Monaco.
Founded in 1988 by Stefano Casiraghi, Monacair specializes in VIP transportation. Based at the Monaco Heliport, the company has operated more than 50 scheduled flights per day between Nice and Monaco since 2016.
In other related news, in May 2019 La Compagnie launched a seasonal route between New York and Nice aboard their luxury aircraft, Boeing 757. The route operates five times weekly, Wednesday through Sunday, throughout the months of May and October, and departs out of Newark International Airport in New Jersey.
