About Chambéry Savoie Mont Blanc Airport

About Chambéry Savoie Mont Blanc Airport
Thanks to its strategic location between lake and mountains, Chambéry Savoie Mont Blanc Airport offers a privileged gateway to the biggest ski resorts in the Alps. During the 2022-2023 season, almost 169,000 passengers travelled through the airport on scheduled direct flights to the UK, on ski charter flights operated by tour operators and on its dedicated business aviation terminal. Thanks to its proximity to the ski resorts, Chambéry Savoie Mont Blanc airport is the 3rd busiest airport for business aviation in France in winter.

With regard to infrastructure, in 2016 the airport underwent major renovation work on its two terminals, followed in 2019 by work to expand and bring the commercial terminal up to standard in anticipation of the restoration of formalities and border controls linked to Brexit. Further adaptations to border controls for the benefit of Customs staff and to allow a better distribution of passenger flows will take place in 2023, as well as the creation of a walk-through duty-free shop to enhance the passenger experience.

As a local expression of VINCI Airports' environmental policy, the works also improved the airport's environmental performance by installing LED lighting and water savers. Chambéry airport also obtained ISO 14001 certification in 2019, which it renewed in 2022. That same year, the Savoie hub obtained level 3 Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA). Obtaining ACA 3 underlines the efforts made by the hub to decarbonise its activities, as well as the actions taken to involve all its stakeholders.
