Thomas Cook Airline services may have gone but this winter sees three new ski routes introduced from the UK to Grenoble airport, which is officially now known as 'Grenoble Alpes Isère airport'.
It is usually the best airport for accessing ski areas in the southern French Alps including Alpe d'Huez and Les Deux Alpes as well as smaller resorts like Villard de Lans, Corrençon, Chamrousse and les 7 Laux.
Altogether the Isère region has a total of 23 ski resorts with a combined 1,200 km of slopes.
The new flights include weekly flights on a Saturday from East Midlands airport with Jet2 commencing on 21st December running through to next April; a new route from Bristol with Ryanair from January to March 2020 and Easyjet are adding more flights to its existing service from Gatwick, also a former Thomas Cook Airline route, adding a service every Thursday making it possible to have a short break in combination with weekend services.
Skiers can now fly into Grenoble from 10 cities in the British Isles (London, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Dublin and Guernsey) using EasyJet, Jet2, British Airways, Ryanair and Wizz Air services.
There are many direct shuttle services available from the terminal, to take skiers to all the main ski resorts.
