2018 Winter Olympics

Private Flights to the Winter Olympic Games in South Korea

The 2018 Winter Olympics begin Friday, February 9th and run through Sunday, February 25. The setting for the XXIII Olympic Winter Games will be PyeongChang, a resort town in South Korea.

Sports including ice hockey, figure skating, snowboarding, and skiing will be showcased, along with popular athletes including Shaun White, Lindsey Vonn, and Jamie Anderson.

With more gold medals being awarded than ever and 8 new events are also included on the schedule, most notably the big-air snowboarding competition, it’s looking to be one of the most exciting Olympic’s in recent years.

Over one million spectators are anticipated to visit South Korea for the games. Most of the attendees will arrive nearly 90 miles away by flying commercial into Seoul, continuing their journey inside a crowded train to PyeongChang. For what it’s worth, the train is new.

Instead, Air Charter Advisors can arrange for your private flight to arrive at Yanyang International Airport (YNY). Yanyang features a 8,202 foot runway capable of handling any plane, including VIP airliners for group charter flights. Located just an hour away from the games, we can arrange for luxury ground transportation or VIP/high-security transport to take you the rest of the way.

If you’re planning on attending this year’s Winter Olympics in South Korea and you’re concerned with recent world events, another issue alleviated by private aviation is security concerns, limiting your exposure while traveling via charter jet at private/smaller airports and using FBO terminals to keep you away from the crowd.

Book your jet charter in advance

As the most comfortable way to arrive for the winter games, private jets are also the preferred method of travel for high net worth individuals and corporations from around the world, many of which will be flying to this year’s games either via private jet charter, or using their own aircraft.

The high volume of private jet traffic coming into South Korea means airport slots will go into effect at local airports. These are essentially times permitted by the airport for your flight to land and take-off. Available on on a first come, first serve basis, it’s important to book your jet charter flight to the Winter Olympics early to lock in your preferred arrival and departure times.
