The last weekend of the Cannes Film Festival draws in an increasing number of stars and star-gazers.

More celebrities will arrive to grace the red carpet at closing ceremony on Sunday night.

Organisers cannot afford to have the stars stuck in traffic jams as they make their way from Nice’s Côte d’Azur Airport.

Michel de Rohozinski is the managing director of Geo Azur Helicoptere, one of the companies that offers flights between Nice and Cannes.

Rohozinski says every year lots of celebrities use helicopters for the seven minute journey – especially towards the end of the festival.

There is a helipad is just a few hundred metres the Palais du Festival.
