The Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters is once again upon us. This prestigious tennis tournament is a wonderful start to the Riviera’s busy and high profile spring calendar, which includes the Cannes Film Festival and the Monaco Grand Prix. Socialites and tennis fans flock to Monaco’s legendary Monte-Carlo Country Club to watch the top names in men’s tennis take to the clay. In the lead-up to this year’s Masters 1000 event, which takes place between the 14th – 22nd April, the burning question everyone is asking is whether Rafael Nadal will continue his incredible Monte-Carlo winning streak? Monacair is delighted to be one of the event’s transport partners as fans flock to the Principality to find out. After all, a Nice to Monaco helicopter transfer offers the chance to travel to and from the tournament in the utmost convenience and luxury.
A Memorable Setting
The Monte-Carlo Country Club is famous for its sparkling seaside setting and stunning views of the Mediterranean. Monaco is easily the most glamorous stop on the ATP tour and the ochre-red clay courts sit high above the sea looking out across its yacht-dotted waters. The tournament is renowned for its exclusive hospitality that includes front row VIP loges on Court Ranier III, a balcony restaurant which overlooks all the centre court action and a number of exclusive privilege packages perfect for hosting corporate guests.
The event is also a player favourite and extremely important to defending champion Rafael Nadal, who has won the championship ten times, including an amazing unchallenged stretch of eight years between 2005 and 2012. As it stands, rivals for the 2018 crown are set to comprise Monaco resident Novak Djokovic, Britain’s Andy Murray, Swiss player Stan Wawrinka and French favourites Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Gilles Simon.
Easy Access to the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters
As one of the biggest sporting events in the Mediterranean, the roads get busy and parking is notoriously difficult. A transfer between Nice Côte d’Azur Airport and Monaco with Monacair’s convenient and cost-effective airport transfer service ensures you’ll not only beat the crowds but arrive in total style. All passengers with tickets for the tournament will be offered complimentary transport between Monaco’s heliport and the venue.
Flights take just seven minutes and provide dazzling views of the French Riviera coastline. Our single-engine Airbus H130 is the signature helicopter of the line that connects Nice and Monaco and is capable of carrying up to six passengers in complete safety and luxury.
With an average of 50 flights per day, there is a helicopter departing every 15 minutes between 8:30 am and 8pm. Helicopter transfers are up to five times faster than travelling by land and guarantee you won’t miss a moment of the clay court action. Alternatively, you can charter a private helicopter for large group transport and corporate bookings. A helicopter transfer with Monacair to the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters ensures that you arrive feeling refreshed and excited to watch some world class tennis.
