IPC to offer athletes charter flights to Sochi 2014 test events

25 Sep 2012

The deadline for National Paralympic Committees to express an interest to travel on the charter services is 5 October 2012.

IPC Alpine Skiing and IPC Nordic Skiing are looking to partner with logistics specialists DB Schenker to offer charter flights for athletes to three Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games test events next March.

Departing from Zurich, Switzerland or Milan, Italy, the flights will ensure smooth arrival into Sochi and will be around EUR 1,400 per passenger, including 100kg of luggage and a piece of hand luggage. The charter costs are based on maximum utilisation by all athletes.

The three test events that will have charter flight services include snowboard from 4-6 March, alpine skiing from 6-12 March and nordic skiing from 13-22 March.

The deadline for National Paralympic Committees to express an interest to travel on the charter services is 5 October 2012.
