You will be sharing the vehicle with other people that will be collected from, or dropped off at different locations in Les Contamines. You might have to wait for more passengers at the airport, and the vehicle might travel around Les Contamines, picking up or dropping off other travelers. This might increase the journey time, but you always will be notified in advance of your actual pick-up time.
