With the resumption of direct flights, air services at Geneva Airport have improved significantly. During the 2023 summer season (from the end of March to the end of October), 123 destinations will be accessible thanks to 44 airlines. The routes will mainly cover Europe, but will also include destinations in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and North America.
The long-haul network to North America will benefit from a new daily service from April 10, 2023 to New York (JFK) offered by Delta Air Lines. Beyond the Big Apple, the entire United States will be offered good connections. This route completes the existing transatlantic routes: New York (Newark) and Washington with United (20 years of presence in Geneva in 2023), New York (JFK) with SWISS and Montreal with Air Canada.
Air China's return to Beijing is noteworthy. The end of sanitary measures and the full opening to tourism in the coming months should support the three frequencies planned this summer.
Ethiopian Airlines, with now four rotations per week to Addis Ababa, ensures beyond Ethiopia very good connections to the countries of eastern and southern Africa, and even the islands of the Indian Ocean.

The two GVA-based carriers will be stepping up their flight operations in the coming summer season. easyJet plans to serve 70 destinations, using the more fuel-efficient Airbus A321neo aircraft. SWISS, on the other hand, will be offering more than 40 direct routes, thanks in part to its latest-generation Airbus A220 aircraft.
