With the summer timetable 2002 becoming effective on Sunday, March 31st,
75 destinations will be available, 51 in Europe and 24 overseas respectively, served by direct scheduled flights from Geneva International Airport, provided by 33 airlines.
The most remarkable event of this summer timetable is the start of flight operations for
SWISS, the new Swiss airline resuming operations of Swissair and Crossair.
SWISS will serve 22 destinations from Geneva. It is worth noting the four new daily flights to Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle, ten daily flights between Geneva and Zürich, an extra daily flight to London-City (4) and a flight to Madrid (2) have been added as changes to the former 2001 summer timetables of both Swissair and Crossair.
As for the other airlines, easyJet will be operating four daily flights between Geneva and Paris?Orly from May onwards, so both Paris airports will again be served from Geneva International Airport;
other novelties are expected, two extra daily flights to Vienna (five in total) with Austrian Airlines, a weekly Air France flight to Biarritz as well as a weekly flight to Cagliari operated by Air Dolomiti. As for frequencies, it should be mentioned that from now on, Air France will operate eleven flights on a daily basis between Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle and Geneva, thereby providing a real shuttle service and Air Malta will operate two weekly flights instead of one to Malta; easyJet will also increase its number of daily flights to Nice, namely to three.
Finally, for charter flights, it may be noted that the offer of seasonal flights shows good progression as regards nearby sea resorts (Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily, Malta, Balearic Islands, etc.).
All in all, 29 destinations will be served by charter flights during the summer, 14 with Swiss, 6 with Swisswings and 11 with other airlines.
