What better vantage point could you have to admire a landscape than from an airplane? None! Often the best time to enjoy the environment from an airplane is during take-off and landing, depending on the airport you land in. In order for you to enjoy the most breath-taking scenery, Fly Aeolus has prepared a top 10 most beautiful airports in Europe where we can land and take off for you! So, fasten your seatbelts and let yourself be seduced by the exceptional airports and airfields that we will be happy to take you to!
This airport is located in Western Austria and is located 5 km from Innsbruck`s city center. This airport lies in the Tyrolean region and lies in a valley surrounded by the Alps. The surrounding terrain makes the approach difficult for large aircraft, the Boeing 767 being the largest aircraft that can land there. This size limitation is due to the surrounding Alps, which create strong winds. The General Aviation Center at Innsbruck Airport handles private jet, business jet and air taxi’s and offers perfect service for business and leisure travelers.
Samedan Airport (Engadin)
Situated in Switzerland, 5 km from St. Moritz, the airport of Engadin is in the middle of the Swiss mountains, this airport welcomes many travelers who wish to enjoy the skiresort of St. Moritz and all the activities it has to offer.

In addition to offering you a landing between the mountains, landing at the airport of Chambery will allow you to fly over the Lac du Bourget. Landing at this airport is very convenient for winter sports enthusiasts, as it is only 10 kilometers from the city of Chambery, the gates of ski resorts!
Scilly Isles St Mary Airport

And this will be felt as soon as you land on the beautiful St Mary’s airstrip! The airport is located on the south coast of the largest island and is only 2 kilometres from Hugh Town.

The altiport of Megève, located in the Rhône-Alpes region of France, is only 5 km from the city of Megève, at an altitude of 1472 m.
