One of the fastest and of course most stylish ways to transfer from Nice Airport to resorts like Monaco, Cannes and St-Tropez is by helicopter.  There are several helicopter operators on the French Riviera and they can transfer directly from the airport, from the Nice Airport heliport, to a heliport in most major resorts.  The helicopter operator will then arrange for a private car transfer to the door of your hotel or private accommodation.

Typical helicopter flight times for major resorts from Nice airport are:

Nice Airport to St-Tropez    20 mins

Nice Airport to Monaco   7 mins

Nice Airport to Cannes   7 mins

The cost varies on time of year and length of journey.  During the Cannes film festival the prices rocket due to demand, but at other times a one way journey varies from €100-€300 depending on length and time of year.  Nice Airport to Monaco by Helicopter standard rate is €140.

Taking a Helicopter from Nice Airport

If you are arriving by aeroplane and are taking a helicopter from Nice Airport then you need to make your way with your luggage to Helicopter Service Waiting Area (sign-posted in Arrivals).  From here you will be assisted by the ground crew of your Helicopter operator.  They will transport you and your luggage to the Heliport which is away from the main terminal buildings.

Helicopter Operators

Two of the main helicopter operators from Nice airport are:
