Starting in February 2020, Badrutt’s Palace adds a 30-seat Dornier 328 airlift – 90 minutes between London (Biggin Hill) and Engadin Airport. The fact that Engadin Airport, which is ten minutes by car from the hotel, has a new IFR landing system adds considerably to reliable landing in most weather conditions. Badrutt’s Palace is partnering with Billund-based SUN-AIR of Scandinavia A/S, a British Airways franchisee.
You are offered food and drink designed by Jason Atherton on the London-Engadin run, and by Badrutt’s Palace on the return. Each passenger has 25 kg checked luggage, 10kg hand luggage and complimentary ski equipment transport. Flights operate as carbon neutral, meaning emissions will be offset by investing in a range of global carbon reduction projects.
Coincidentally, 2020 marks the 100-year anniversary of the first flight between St. Moritz and London.
