Day 8: Leaving Courmayeur, Italy

By on December 28, 2008 in Italy

Another early start….

As the flight was at 10:25 am from Geneva, it meant we needed to be on the road by 6:50 am… breakfast was at 6 am… so up at 5:30 am. It wouldn’t have been so bad if it wasn’t for the traditional last night of a ski trip, i.e. a late night with lots of drinks.

The flight back to the UK wasn’t too bad and we actually landed at Gatwick on time…

Two points:

1.  Mark Warner’s timing for getting us to the flight was a bit off.

We arrived at the charter terminal at Geneva Airport around 8:45 am for a 10:25 am flight. By the time we had checked-in, been through security, and taken the long walk to the plane (including a bus trip between terminals) we only just made it. We were the last to get on to the plane.

2.  Geneva Airport efficiency.

The distance from the airport gate and the plane was all of 50 meters, and yet the Swiss Airport Authority insisted on loading us on to a coach to drive the distance. We then stood on the tarmac for 10 minutes, at the bottom of the plane steps, whilst we waited to board. Totally nuts.
