Passengers travelling on the daily flight from Nice to Dubai can then travel to Monaco from Nice airport by taking the Nice Monaco regular helicopter lines (rotation every 6 minutes) provided by the Monaco company Monacair. The flight only lasts 7 minutes for a fare of 79 euros one way for the business class traveler. (109 for those in economy class). Thes amounts make very little sense.
This price also includesthe support by a car transfer service with driver to or from the heliport of the Principality in Monaco. The transfer of luggage is also assured. For first class or business customers Emirates also offers a car service between Nice and Monaco for those who do not wish to use the helicopter.
