Border controls are being gradually lifted across much of the world, including the UK and Europe, allowing executive travel to be facilitated once more. However, there are parts of the world that still cannot easily be accessed, due to ongoing restrictions, including the US and Australia (at time of writing).
By contrast, the European Union recently lifted quarantine requirements for vaccinated travelers, making holiday excursions and short business trips possible once more. Given how locked down most of us have been throughout 2020 and into 2021, this summer is anticipated to be something of a boom period for luxury travel to the Italian and French Riviera. HADID Riviera at Riviera Airport is looking forward to welcoming discerning frequent fliers to their hidden oases on the Italian coast.
What and Where is HADID Riviera?
Located in an airport that has been present for almost a century, HADID Riviera is discreetly situated at Villanova d’Albegna on the pristine crescent of the Ligurian Coast, less than an hour’s drive from San Remo. Cradled between the hills and the sea, the airport is something of a best-kept secret amongst the Riviera’s jet set. HADID Riviera carefully maintains its focus on privacy, providing a peaceful gateway to this lively region. Visitors start their visit in a relaxed manner, with safety and comfort as HADID and Riviera Airport’s primary focus.
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.
Who Can HADID Riviera Accommodate?
HADID Riviera welcomes private jets and can coordinate charter flights. The team can arrange onward jet or helicopter charters and air taxis. HADID Riviera will also provide fuel uplifts and clients can be confident of Riviera Airport’s secure long-stay aircraft parking while they enjoy all that the Riviera has to offer, from fine dining to ancient villages, sparkling coastlines, world-renowned casinos, and luxury hotels.
Whether visitors are flying in for the Cannes Film Festival, visiting the Picasso Museum in Antibes or having lunch at the three Michelin starred La Vague D’Or in St Tropez, HADID Riviera is happy to assist with bookings and onward travel arrangements.
Safety and Privacy
One of the benefits of being secluded is that HADID Riviera is a lot quieter and safer than many of the more bustling commercial airports. In this time of increased concern around COVID-19, visitors can be assured the highest standards of hygiene. It is easier to maintain social distancing with a comparatively low volume of daily visitors and with fewer touchpoints.
HADID Riviera’s service is more about quality than quantity. The airport may have fewer visitors, but this allows HADID to offer a bespoke personal service. Since the airport remains a best kept secret, visitors will not be ambushed by paparazzi or hounded by taxi services touting for business. There is little traffic, no queues and no cacophonous shopping malls; just the elegantly furnished and fitted executive lounge against its backdrop of Mediterranean vistas.
Easy Access to Highlights of the Riviera
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.
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 gaming table at the Casino de Monte Carlo in a couple of hours.
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.
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.
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.
Sit Back and Let us Do Everything for You
With over 40 years’ experience in the sector, HADID has been managing and operating the Executive Aviation Terminal from Riviera Airport for three years. HADID Riviera’s staff will meet guests on arrival, ready to assist with ongoing travel and accommodation as well as parking and refueling jets, if required.
Airports can be anonymous and uncomfortable places. Not so HADID Riviera’s luxurious waiting lounge, where guests will be kept well-fed and entertained, in comfort, safety and security. With luxury hotel styling, the facilities are designed to make travelers feel relaxed and at home.
HADID Riviera’s lounge features art installations, a library, private meeting rooms and on-site spa treatments to help guests relax. If there is anything else the team can do to ease guests’ transit through our facility, they are happy to assist.
