The Cote d’Azur is famous for its high-profile events and upscale yachting facilities. The Monaco Yacht Show epitomises the luxurious appeal of the Riviera and consistently attracts seafarers and those with a love of the high life. A discerning collection of yacht enthusiasts travel from far and wide to experience – and perhaps purchase or charter – these yachts. The only way to arrive at the illustrious event is by a luxury helicopter transfer. The ‘Regular Line’ is a Nice to Monaco helicopter service that operates every 15 minutes from Nice International Airport, taking just 7 minutes to arrive at Monaco’s heliport.
A Show-Stopping End to the Mediterranean Yacht Season
Taking place from 27th-30th September 2017, the Monaco Yacht Show brings together yachting professionals and potential clients. More than 125 of the finest superyachts (ranging from 25 to 100m) are showcased across 9,000m2 of exhibition space in and around Port Hercules. Visitors can expect to see 40 debuts, some of the world’s most luxurious mega yachts, tenders, water toys and other innovations from around 600 leaders of the yachting industry. The event attracted around 34,000 visitors from around the world last year and continues to increase in popularity and scale.
Something Luxurious for Everyone
The MYS is a celebration of all things luxury and that includes other sectors besides yachting. The popular ‘Car Deck’ area at Quai Antoine Ier welcomes prestige car manufacturers such as Aston Martin, Rolls Royce and Mercedes. Elsewhere, watches, jewellery and travel products are exhibited and people can unwind at the Upper Deck Lounge, taking advantage of the catering and free Wi-Fi.
There is also a programme of exhibitions, workshops and conferences, in which leading figures in the industry can meet with like-minded individuals. Monaco is brimming with high-calibre restaurants for fine dining and exclusive lounge bars where socialising continues after the sun sets. When transferring on the Regular Line, visitors and exhibitors get the chance to network aboard luxury helicopters on route to the show or groups can even hire a whole helicopter for themselves.
A Breathtaking Journey
The stretch of coast between Nice and Monaco is full of historic charm and natural beauty. Here, the rocky coastline meets the sparkling Mediterranean Sea to form breathtaking scenery. As you can imagine, the bird’s eye view of the Riviera from a helicopter is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Monacair’s Regular Line has helped numerous VIPs reach the MYS from Nice Cote d’Azur Airport, offering an easy, comfortable and convenient trip. Passengers can fly in the six-seater airbus from €160 per person, enjoying efficient embarkation straight from incoming international flights and avoiding frustrating delays on the roads.
The Royal Seal of Approval
The journey between Nice and Monaco also includes a minibus shuttle service to or from your house, hotel or office in the Principality. As the preferred helicopter airline of the Royal Family of Monaco, Monacair delivers a five-star service that is fit for royalty. There is simply no faster, safer or more stylish way to arrive at the MYS.
