I would imagine Courcheval, France, is right up there:

The airport is surrounded by mountains, and it's eusually very windy/rainy or foggy/hazy.
Beautiful airport and scenery, but I don't think any scheduled service operates to there.

Only Atlantic Airways and Air Iceland fly out there?

What are some of the difficult approach airports in Europe that are used for commercial, or not just private aircraft?
|Quoting PlymSpotter (Reply 9):|
LCY - London City is also fairly unusual when you consider the steep glide path and the size of jets which fly in there. PLH - Plymouth was the first UK airport certified with such a steep glide-slope, coupled with a very short runway (just over 1100m), high altitude; stuck right between the moors and the sea, this creates some pretty abysmal weather and very difficult approaches into it.
The Isles of Scilly (ISC) is also another difficult one (as are many of the Scottish Isle Airports), 570m long, stuck out in the Atlantic off the tip of Cornwall it's pretty open to the elements, SkyBus only fly Islanders and DHC6's in.
