The most beautiful airport approach in the world!

We’re not surprised to learn that the approach to Nice airport has been voted the most beautiful in the world! That’s according to a survey carried out by PrivateFly, a private jet company, among their customers.

It beat almost 200 other airports which were also in the competition, coming ahead of Barra airport (Scotland), Rio de Janeiro, Gibraltar, Los Angeles LAX, Saint-Martin (French Antilles) and Queenstown, (New Zealand).

Each year the company produces the Top Ten, a list of the most stunning approaches in the world. It ranges from urban landscapes such as London and Los Angeles to tiny, isolated airports such as the beach on the remote island of Barra, to the stunning mountain scenery of Squamish, Canada. But this year it was Nice that brought home first place. According to Adam Twidell, director of the company and experienced pilot,  this was a well deserved win: ‘It offers an extraordinary combination of blue sea and skies, mountains, and a glimpse of beautiful villas, yachts and helicopters below, impossible to find elsewhere in the world. It encapsulates the timeless glamour of the Cote d’Azur’.

Yet another reason (as if you needed one!) to buy an apartment in Nice!
