Over a century since its establishment, the seasonal landmark luxury hotel, overlooking Lake Saint Moritz and the surrounding Swiss Alps, known as Badrutt’s Palace proudly announced the launch of its first-ever private plane. Offering a series of direct flights from London to St. Moritz, the Dornier 328 jet accommodates up to 30 passengers in a carbon neutral aircraft.
Taking its inaugural flight on 14th February, the jet is set to take off from London’s Biggin Hill Airport and will land solely in Samedan, St. Moritz. Operating only on selected dates, passengers and crew can expect to fly in the presence of the legendary Badrutt’s Palace staff, receive in-flight catering by celebrity chef partner, Jason Atherton of King’s Social House and arrive at their desired destination in under 2 hours.
The hotel aims to facilitate a seamless and stress-free journey through furthering direct flights from key destinations during holiday seasons, and offering passengers an easy check-in alternative up to 45 minutes prior to departure. The use of a carbon neutral flight also means that Badrutt’s Palace intends to offset emissions through investing in a range of global carbon reduction projects such as rainforest protection and reforestation programs.
Following the announcement, Badrutt’s Palace confirmed additional flights from London will take place on the 15th and 16th of February and will return by the 22nd and 23rd of the same month.
