Cervinia general information

Cervinia general information


Milan Malapensa, Geneva and Turin international airports are the points of arrival for visitors to Cervinia, with around a two-hour transfer by bus to the resort from all three. Major European full-service airlines including British Airways from London Heathrow serve Milan, as do low-coast carriers including BMIbaby, EasyJet from Gatwick, Luton and other UK cities and Flybe from Manchester and Birmingham. Geneva offers similar services, with the addition of BA’s seasonal flights from Gatwick and London City, added routes from EasyJet, routes by Jet2 from the UK and charters with Thomas Cook and Thomson. Turin provides fewer flights, with BA only running from Gatwick, Ryanair picking up on London Stansted and chartered package deal flights through Thomas Cook and Thompson.

Onward transportation from all three airports is by coach, expensive taxis or self-drive with car hire. International train travel options to Cervinia include the Eurostar from London to Paris, changing trains to the fast French TVG network as far as St Gervase, then onward to the resort by taxi or shuttle bus. The lift passes here give options based on the areas, the number of days required, the time during the season and the age of skiers, making it tricky to calculate exact needs on a first visit. If it’s possible to work out actual skiing needs from the complex instructions, advance online booking to save money is strongly recommended.
