The Monaco Heliport, also known as Monte Carlo Heliport, is an aerial service provider in the Principality of Monaco. It links Monaco to the Nice-Cote d’Azur International Airport in a matter of seven minutes. Monacair, a Monegasque airline, operates 50 flights per day to and from Nice. The heliport connects to all arrivals and departures in Nice. The Heliport is located at Fontvieille, the southwest part of Monaco. It is about 3 kilometers from the Casino de Monte Carlo. To reach the heliport by car, take the highway and follow signs to Rue Grimaldi/Charles Boulevard. You can also take the city bus lines 5 or 6 to the heliport.
The Monaco Heliport is operated by the Civil Aviation Authority. It is located in the Fontvieille district, behind the Louis II Stadium. MCM Heliport has direct access to departure lounges of major airlines and is connected to the city’s main international airport. The heliport is also accessible by foot, bus, and metro. It was opened with the support of Prince Rainier III in 1976 with a single helipad and has now expanded to eight helipads.
The only scheduled destination to and from MCM is the Nice Côte d’Azur private jet hire airport in Nice, France. Both arrivals and departures are routed over the water to minimize noise over the city-state of Monaco.
