Leading specialist and snow sport travel company Inghams has expanded its range

of holidays direct from Cambridge International Airport.  New to the company’s Winter 2015/16 ski

brochure is a weekly flight to the French Alps on Saturdays, from mid December 2015 to end of

March 2016.


The new direct winter flights to Chambery Airport take less than two hours from Cambridge and the

airport is well located for world renowned ski areas including the ‘Paradiski’, ‘Espace Killy’ and

‘Three Valley’ ski areas.  With shorter transfer times to resorts and short check-in and waiting times

at Cambridge, East of England skiers and snowboarders will enjoy more convenient travel to the

French Alps as well as Ingham’s wide range of resorts and accommodation.


Resorts offered from Cambridge feature some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the world,

from beginners’ level to intermediate and advanced, at Alpe d’Huez, Courchevel, La Plagne, La

Rosiere, Les Arcs, Les Deux Alpes, Meribel, Tignes, Val d’Isere, and Val Thorens.


A firm favourite for its excellent customer service, in-resort care and high quality holiday options,

Inghams features an unsurpassed range of self-catering, bed & breakfast, half and full board hotel

accommodation. Inghams also offers its own range of exceptional, exclusive catered chalet and

chalet-hotel holidays which are ideal for couples, families and groups alike.  These properties offer

great value-added benefits such as free WiFi, hearty skiers’ breakfasts, afternoon snacks and

excellent four or five-course evening meals with complimentary wine. Most are also in perfect ski-in

ski-out locations, offering the best slope-side access to the pistes.


“Inghams is an excellent travel company and we’re delighted to see another new destination”,

commented David Surley, head of business & route development at Cambridge International

Airport.  “We know they’ll be delighting East England based customers from Cambridge this winter

with an outstanding range of ski and snowboard holidays to the French Alps – home to some of the

finest slopes and some of the most famous and popular snow-sport resorts, just a short flight away.”


Peter Moor of Inghams Holidays welcomed the new winter flights from Cambridge, saying “this is

where Inghams excels; offering customers excellent, friendly service at convenient local departure

points. Flying from Cambridge is both relaxing and enjoyable, it’s so easy to reach from all over East

England with terminal-side car parking and none of the hassle.  Plus, with shorter resort transfers

arriving at Chambery, the new flights are ideal for quick access to our many French Alps resorts and

the fantastic skiing and snowboarding on offer.  We know this will be a popular option for Cambridge

and East Anglian travellers and we’re very happy to be adding another new destination.”
