Potential Considerations for Private Aviation to World Economic Forum

There are two primary considerations to keep in mind when making travel plans for World Economic Forum. Both of which can cause serious problems for people who fly into the area on commercial airlines.

One. The time of year. January weather in the Swiss Alps can be unpredictable requiring flexibility in travel plans. The weather can cause you to seek alternate landing locations or consider moving arrival and departure times and dates that will allow you to arrive early or leave late in order to accommodate the weather without missing a beat at the forum.

Two. The sheer volume of attendees. Davos isn’t exactly huge. When 2,500 of the world’s busiest entrepreneurs, CEOs, philanthropists, and leaders converge on one small area, you’re looking at one of the world’s biggest private jet traffic jams.

Making plans early, in either case, gives you time to consider alternative arrangements that may be necessary in order to ensure that all your needs are met without missing out on the opportunities attending World Economic Forum has to offer you personally and professionally.

Airports for Private Jet Charter Flights to Davos

Scheduling a private jet charter flight to Davos for World Economic Forum is best done well in advance of the event. These are some of the nearby airports that can accommodate private jet traffic.

  • Samedan Airport (SMV) – sometimes referred to as Engadin Airport
  • Hohenems-Dornbirn Airport (HOH)
  • Gallen-Altenrhein Airport (ACH)

  • Zurich Airport (ZRH)

SMV and HOH are the closest airports in proximity to Davos, but can only accommodate private jet aircraft.
