Another Reason to Fly to Nice

Date: 25 Sep 2015 11:45 (UTC)

The private jets are always lining up to go from Moscow to the Nice Côte d'Azur Airport, but this weekend, there's an additional reason for the most popular private jet route in the world to get some additional traffic: the Monaco Yacht Show.

The tiny principality of Monaco that's 30 minutes from the Nice Airport, is a playground for the rich with casinos, exclusive stores and, of course, the Monte Carlo Grand Prix. This is the 25th edition of the MYS, and this year, there are around 120 yachts on display, at an average cost of $440 million. The show is under the high patronage of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, the son of King Ranier III and Princess Grace, the American actress, Grace Kelly.

As well as world-famous shipyards displaying sailing yachts and superyachts, there are hundreds other displays that feature the must-have accessories for the people who have these vessels custom made. Boutsen Design is one of those exhibitors, they specialize in coordinating all the "loose equipment"  you will need for your yacht, aircraft -- or home -- sourcing the chinaware, glassware, linens, etc., that lets you put your signature on the finished product.

The MYS runs until Saturday and a daily pass for adults costs €150 (VAT included).

JetHunter has found that the route between Moscow and Nice is one of our most popular flight requests. Find and make a booking on  private jet that suits your needs here. And if you're a charter operator who isn't part of our network yet, you can register here.
