The first checkered flag of the 74th Monaco Grand Prix will be waved on Thursday and the streets of the Principality will once again be filled with the screech of rubber and the roar of engines. The electric atmosphere of Monaco around the time of the event surpasses the excitement of the race itself, with revellers celebrating in the most glamorous ways possible. On the Sunday of the event, over 100,000 people are expected to flock to the Principality to experience one of the most exhilarating races on the automotive calendar.
Arriving in style is therefore paramount, and how better to travel than by luxury helicopter transfer? Those planning to fly to the South of France for the event will be pleased to hear that Heli Securite will be operating a Monaco Grand Prix helicopter transfer, between Nice Côte d’Azur Airport and Monaco heliport, at very competitive rates, providing a scenic and convenient means of travel.
The journey between the two destinations takes only seven minutes but it is seven minutes you will never forget. As we leave Nice airport we fly over the picturesque city itself and head out along the Riviera. On our right we can see for miles across the bright blue Mediterranean as superyachts pass beneath us. On our left we pass charming towns and villages perched on top of dramatic cliff tops and in idyllic bays, such as Eze and Villefranche-sur-Mer. We enter Monaco low over the coast, giving you a chance to take in the unique atmosphere until we finally reach the famous destination, which will be alive with a buzz of excitement.
But this route isn’t just a beautiful experience; it’s also extremely efficient. Usually the trip takes around 30 minutes by car but the traffic during the Grand Prix swells to monumental proportions and makes driving almost impossible. The seaside road into the principality is renowned for its sweeping bends and stunning views but the chances are that on race day your only view will be of the car in front of you.
The journey back from Monaco to Nice is also just seven minutes long, without the worry of returning a rental car or the stress of missing a flight home. You can just sit back and enjoy the view as we drop you exactly where you need to be.
Alternatively, we can transport you to any of our other landing spots in the region, whether it is just down the coast to Cannes or further afield, such as St Tropez.
