New airline powdair will launch in December 2017 with ticket sales now on sale through its website powdair.ski with a winter schedule that links Sion Airport with eight destinations in the UK, one of those being Bristol Airport.
The skiers airline, based in Sion – the heart of Switzerland’s winter sport region, the Valais, will offer skiers and snowboarders across the UK, Northern Germany and the Benelux Countries the chance to reach some of the world’s most famous winter sports resorts quickly and efficiently.
Flights commence from December 14, 2017 and will significantly cut transfer times to some of Switzerland’s most popular ski resorts for winter sports enthusiasts including Zermatt, Verbier, Saas Fee, Crans Montana and Nendaz. A variety of transfer options from Sion Airport to onward destinations are available to book at the point of ticket purchase, including shared and private journeys to the major resorts in the region.
Initial reports were that the airline would use a Tradeair Fokker 100 on the route but since then we have heard the airline may be using a leased aircraft painted in a bespoke Powdair livery, more information to follow once we know more.
