16-January-2007 : Countries With No Airports? What Am I To Do?
Today I was asked a question by a fellow photographer I had the answer to, but never really thought about. What do you do when you are flying to a country with no airport? In this case it was traveling between the United Kingdom and Monaco.
Monaco is a Principality with more per-capita money that almost any nation on the earth (with limited exceptions such as Brunei) . This is a nation that is only 1 square miles (2 square kilometers), a nation that has been made famous by a massive casino and a harbour that often contains the most expensive luxury yachts in the world………but not even a private airport
Well, should you have a spare €2,000,000 to drop at the tables your best bet is to fly into Nice (NCE) in France, which is only about 15 miles from the Monte Carlo Casino. There are more seasonal flights to Nice in the spring/summer, but there is still regular service to NCE all year round from London Heathrow (LHR) Paris (CDG), Amsterdam (AMS) , Munich (MUC) and Rome (FCO). So what do you do when you want to travel here?
Make friends with a billionaire and take their private helicopter in.
