HADID Riviera Gears Up for the 2023 Monaco Grand Prix Formula 1

The Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix stands out as one of the most distinguished events in the global motorsports scene, where the driver who secures the top starting grid spot at qualifying often takes the win.


Taking place yearly on Monte Carlo's city streets at the Circuit de Monaco, this race pushes drivers to their limits with its sharp turns, steep inclines, and confined roadways, demanding utmost accuracy and focus. The dazzling allure of the city-state adds to the race's legendary status, as it attracts a star-studded audience each year.


What and Where is HADID Riviera?


HADID Riviera operates and manages the FBO and ancillary services at Riviera Airport (LIMG), which is discreetly situated at Villanova d’Albegna on the pristine crescent of the Ligurian Coast near the Franco-Italian border and Rivieras, less than an hour’s drive from Monaco. Cradled between the hills and the sea, the airport is a well-kept secret amongst the Riviera’s jet set.


HADID Riviera carefully focuses on privacy, providing a peaceful gateway to the region. Guests will enjoy stunning views and an exceptional stopover with VIP lounges available for both passengers and crews as they await a seamless journey by road or helicopter to their final destinations among the French and Italian Rivieras. The executive terminal features ample amenities, stylish furniture and fittings, a meeting room, and a bespoke art library with a collection of contemporary works.


The luxury lounge and meet and greet services at HADID Riviera provide a pleasant disembarkation to every visitor, and HADID specialises in receiving clients who prioritise ease of travel. The facility lies within easy reach of Genoa, Pisa, Sardinia, Corsica, Antibes, St Tropez, Nice, Cannes, and Monaco.



HADID Riviera: Your Gateway to Monaco


As the highly anticipated Formula 1 Grand Prix De Monaco approaches on the weekend of May 25-28, the French Riviera braces itself for the year's busiest month. Private aircraft from around the world will flock to the region, predominantly landing at major regional airports.


However, during this bustling period, these airports often face limited parking availability, mandatory slots, and prior permission requirements. Consequently, the high traffic can compromise privacy, discretion, and service quality, which may not meet the standards expected by VIP clientele associated with private aviation.


Fortunately, an ideal alternative is Riviera Airport (IATA: ALL, ICAO: LIMG), your exclusive gateway to Monaco and the French Riviera. Dedicated to General Aviation (GA), HADID Riviera offers secure long-stay aircraft parking, swift and discreet customer services, easy access via road or helicopter, and no slot restrictions.


Clients can trust HADID Riviera to provide fuel uplifts and secure long-stay aircraft parking at Riviera Airport. This allows them to fully enjoy the region's exquisite dining, historic villages, stunning coastlines, renowned casinos, luxurious hotels, and iconic events. HADID Riviera accommodates private jets and can organise charter flights. The team can also arrange onward jet or helicopter charters and limousine services.


One advantage of HADID Riviera's secluded location is that it offers a quieter and safer environment compared to bustling commercial airports. In light of increased hygiene concerns following the pandemic, visitors can expect the highest standards of cleanliness, with fewer daily visitors and significantly reduced touchpoints compared to mainstream airports.


HADID Riviera prioritises quality over quantity in their service offerings. The airport's lower visitor count allows HADID to provide more personalised services. As a well-kept secret, clients can avoid crowded queues, paparazzi, and noisy shopping malls instead of indulging in the exquisite executive lounge, complete with breathtaking Mediterranean vistas.


Monaco's Unique Experiences: Where Heritage Meets Challenge


Aside from the thrilling on-track action, visitors can indulge in various activities throughout the weekend. There is something for everyone, from exclusive parties and concerts featuring renowned artists to luxury yacht cruises and fine dining experiences. For those seeking a more cultural experience, Monaco is home to numerous museums, art galleries, and historic sites that showcase its rich heritage.


Here are just a few of the jewels of the Riviera, all within easy access via one of HADID’s air charters or, if clients prefer, by chauffeured limousine.


1. Monaco

Charter a helicopter to the Principality of Monaco from Riviera Airport, which offers speedy air taxi, helicopter, or charter flight connections to Monaco in under 20 minutes.  Land at noon, and guests can be at the Casino de Monte Carlo gaming table in a couple of hours.


2. San Tropez

Cocktails at Nikki Beach, a stroll around the old town, or a visit to the exhibition of Impressionist paintings at the Annonciade Museum. San Tropez retains an old-world charm whilst offering all the modern leisure facilities visitors could desire.  There are a host of beautiful villas and yachts to hire from the town’s pristine harbor.


3. Genoa

Genoa’s old city dates to the 12th and 13th centuries, a fascinating maze of caruggi (narrow lanes) contrasting with enlightenment era architectural masterpieces such as the Unesco-listed Palazzi dei Rolli.  HADID Riviera team can help book guests a suite in some of the finest Belle Epoque and Art Deco Hotels along the bay, which offer glorious views of the Ligurian Sea.


4. Cannes/Antibes

Whether guests visit during the film festival or at quieter times of the year, HADID Riviera recommends renting one of the many private villas overlooking the bay.  Alternatively, guests often take rooms at the Hotel du Cap Eden Roc in Antibes, one of the world’s finest hotels. HADID Riviera can arrange bookings and onward transport via limousine or helicopter.
