The city of Innsbruck in Tyrol, Austria, is a famed winter sports destination but also a wonderful place to visit in summer. Five-star hotels, fine dining, pampering and boutique shopping all await as well as some of the world’s best ski facilities. What better way to arrive at this beautiful and historic mountain city than on a private air charter? Air charters to Tyrol will arrive at the dedicated private jets airport terminal at Innsbruck Airport, also known as Kranebitten. As the largest airport in western Austria, onward transportation is easy. GlobeAir can even arrange a private driver service to meet passengers from their flight and take them to their hotel or luxury chalet in an executive car.
The airport is just 6km for the city centre.
Innsbruck is home to some of the top luxury hotels in Austria that are nicely suitable for small groups or couples arriving by a private jet. The most luxurious hotels in the city include the Grand Hotel Europa and the Hotel Schwarzer Adler. Many ski enthusiasts choose a serviced luxury chalet for their time in the world-famous mountain resorts of Ischgl and Kitzbühel, which includes a five-star service with cooked meals, a hot tub, and a daily maid service.
Despite the snow, al-fresco dining on a rooftop terrace is a popular choice in Innsbruck. Modern Austrian Cuisine and stunning panoramic views can be enjoyed at Licktblick on the 7th floor of 18 Maria-Theresien-Straße, where Chef AKA ‘kitchen art director’ Andreas Zeindlinger creates Heston-worthy innovative dishes. Located in one of the oldest buildings in the city, entering the very traditional Ottoburg is like stepping back in time. Crisp white tablecloths and gourmet regional fare makes for an enchanting evening, perfect for when you fancy something a bit more classic.
Innsbruck isn’t just a place for fine dining and winter sports – there are also plenty of opportunities to indulge in the finest beauty and spa treatments available; many hotels are home to excellent spa centres. Innsbruck is a city well-catered for those that prefer to hit the shops to the slopes. The historic region of the city is where the finest boutique and designer shops can be found. Names include the Swarovski shop which is along Herzog-Friedrich-Straße. Two evenings a year, the city hosts a late-night shopping experience that’s perfect for those who enjoy a bit of retail therapy. The shops along Maria-Theresien-Straße open up as you shop with the mountains in the background.
The city’s famed Christmas Markets runs from mid-Novemebr until the 23rd December. The largest one is in the Old Town and is a perfect spot to source some last-minute presents for friends and family. A second location, Marktplatz, is home to Advent at the Market Square, a family-friendly market with a traditional feel.
A private air charter, sometimes referred to as an air taxi, is the ideal way to travel to Innsbruck.
It means not having to worry about paying extra for taking ski equipment and also means you can travel in luxury and privacy with your family, colleagues or travel companions. You can order gourmet catering, enjoy the complimentary refreshment available in the cabin and if you wish you can bring your pets up to 8kg on board, making the adventure hassle-free from beginning to end. Those with the question, ‘How much does a private jet flight cost?’ will often be pleasantly surprised at the price of a charter, especially when you factor in the number of guests on each flight.

The term empty leg flights refers to the flights that private jets have to make in order to return from or reach a charter. Booking one of these last minute ’empty leg‘ flights can cost considerably less than booking a private charter – up to 90% less in fact. These flights are often only available with a few days’ notice but can be a great way to have a taste of private air travel. Either you book a charter or a last minute flight, the GlobeAir dedicated staff will look after your comfort and safety for the entire flight.
