On June 26th, Monacair’s dedicated hangar at Monaco’s heliport in Fontvieille was the setting for a press conference and cocktail reception with a difference.

Three months out from the 2018 Monaco Yacht Show (MYS), which will be held this year from September 26th to 29th, the Managing Director of the MYS, Gaëlle Tallarida, and her team chose our special location on the Fontvieille waterfront to unveil their exciting new plans for the 28th edition of the world’s leading yacht show.


As proud partners of the 2018 Monaco Yacht Show, Monaco’s helicopter company Monacair was delighted to host MYS media partners and journalists from publications including Boat International, Riviera Zeit, the Riviera Reporter, Monaco Matin, and Monaco Life and influencers including mrsuperyachts. Guests enjoyed a bird’s eye view of Monacair’s airport transfer of helicopters arriving and departing for Nice Côte d’Azur Airport in front of them before Ms Tallarida took to the stage to introduce this year’s exciting new developments to the assembled media.


At the conclusion of the press conference, a cocktail reception was enjoyed by more than 100 guests, including local partners, MYS exhibitors and VIP invites.

We were delighted to welcome MYS to our facilities at the heliport.
