Cheap flights to Monaco

Tiny Monaco may be one of the world's smallest countries, but it is not short on things to see and do. Long a playground for the rich and famous, Monaco dazzles with its dramatic white cliffs, spectacular events, and high-end lifestyle. If you have money to burn then a few days in Monaco can be an unforgettable experience. While Monaco itself does not have its own airport, the nearby Nice-Cote d'Azur International Airport is one of the busiest in France and enjoys connections to most of Europe.

Best Time to Book a Flight to Monaco

Perhaps unsurprisingly, given its location on the Mediterranean, Monaco enjoys an excellent climate. June to September offers the best weather, with warm summer temperatures moderated by cool sea breezes. There are also comfortable nights for a stroll along the beach. Of course, those months are also peak tourist season and you will need to book your hotel and flight well in advance, especially if you plan on visiting around major events like the Formula 1 Grand Prix or the Cannes Film Festival. Winters are mild, but rainy, which isn't usually great vacation weather but you can at least get great discounts on hotels and flights.

Airlines that Fly to Monaco

The only air transportation to Monaco itself is via helicopters, which land at the Monaco Heliport. However, the two helicopter companies serving the airport, Monacair and Heli Securite, only offer scheduled service to the Nice-Cote d'Azur International Airport. So even if you want to use the heliport, you will first have to fly into Nice. The Nice-Cote d'Azur International Airport is served by many major airlines, including:

  • Aegean Airlines
  • Aeroflot
  • Air Canada
  • Air France
  • Air Transat
  • Alitalia
  • Austrian Airlines

What to Expect at the Airport

As mentioned above, there is helicopter service between the Nice Airport and Monaco. The luxury seven-minute ride is expensive, but it offers spectacular views of the coast and is definitely the most dramatic way to arrive in Monaco. Alternatively, there are shuttle buses that head to Monte Carlo in Monaco and which depart from both of the terminals at Nice Airport. Taxis are also an option, although be sure to either negotiate a price with your driver beforehand or insist that they turn on the meter. While Monaco itself is not a great city to drive in due to heavy traffic and a lack of parking, if you want to see some of the countryside then renting a car is a good option.

What to See and Do in Monaco

Monaco is where you go if you want to experience the high life. The Monte Carlo Casino is world famous for its high rollers and you will need to pay a fee and abide by a strict dress code to get in. The city state is also famous for the Formula 1 Grand Prix, which whizzes through Monaco's narrow streets and allows you to get closer to the vehicles than at any other Formula 1 event. Le Rocher is a nice neighbourhood for a stroll being Monaco's oldest and best preserved section. When looking for a hotel, use Skyscanner's hotel search feature to help you find the best room.
