The transition to winter time coincides with the introduction of the new timetable from Sunday, 28 October 2012. Services by direct flights are thus boosted by some new routes and additional flights. All in all, 99 destinations will be connected to Geneva by scheduled flights, 77 of which are in Europe and 22 on other continents. Some 48 scheduled carriers will be operating at Genève Aéroport during the coming six months.
The leading carrier at Genève Aéroport, the budget airline easyJet, is launching two new European destinations during the winter.
Flights to London Southend (3 flights a week) will start on 14 December. With this new route, 6 London airports are henceforth connected by direct flight from Geneva!
In addition, there will be flights to Seville, the capital of Andalusia, from 21 February 2013 (3x a week). The new route to Catania in Sicily (2x a week), inaugurated this summer, will also continue to operate this winter.
Services on some existing routes will be given a boost by new airlines. Wizz Air, for example, Eastern Europe’s main budget carrier, makes its début on the tarmac in Geneva operating flights to Budapest (3x a week).
Routes to Prague are also being stepped up by the new service shared by Czech Airlines and Darwin working in partnership (9x a week in total). Other newsworthy services among those that started back in the summer include the arrival of Lufthansa to Berlin (daily flight), Air Europa to Madrid (twice a day), and easyJet to Venice (5x a week).
Finally, extra flights were added on several major European routes, including London Heathrow (British Airways), Oslo (SAS), Istanbul (Turkish Airlines), and Nice, Bordeaux, and Budapest (easyJet).
