There is Chambéry Airport, with a drive of under two hours. A small airport, expanded to serve the 1992 Winter Olympics, Chambéry airport had some initial difficulty establishing its role. For some time it was almost the private domain of Crystal Holidays, a UK package holiday company. With the development of low cost airlines things have improved, and today it serves nine destinations in Britain alone with over 700 flights during the 2005-6 ski season. Further away, Grenoble's Isère Airport has a transfer time of just under two and a half hours. Grenoble has recently seen an expansion of inbound flights from both Easyjet and Ryanair, although some other regional no-frills airlines have chosen to offer more flights to nearby Chambery or Lyon instead. Surrounded by snow-capped mountains, Grenoble is the largest city in the French Alps. With a slightly longer transfer time of just over two and a half hours, there is also Lyon's Saint Exupéry Airport located some 15 miles / 24 km southeast of Lyon, but still within easy reach of Morzine. Here is some useful information for these airports.
