Swiss continues to consolidate its Geneva flights at London’s City airport (LCY) in favour of Heathrow.
The carrier’s Heathrow-Geneva operation is now reduced to a couple of seasonal flights aimed at the ski market. Meanwhile Swiss will expand its LCY to Geneva service from four to six flights a day effective December 15.
The new timings give a better spread of departures allowing a longer stay in Geneva. A new early bird service from LCY at 0650 gets you to Geneva at 0930. In the return direction, a later flight back departs Geneva at 2050 reaching LCY at 2130.
Flights leave LCY at 0650, 0825, 1120, 1545, 1730 and 2015. From Geneva they depart at 0715, 1010, 1435, 1620, 1905 and 2050.
So far this autumn has been a busy one for LCY. At the end of October, Lufthansa began services to Hamburg and Nuremberg (See Online news, October 19) while Belgian carrier VLM extended one of its Amsterdam services on to Groningen in north Holland. This new service departs at 1750 from LCY returning from Groningen at 0650.
Then on November 20, Air One began daily flights to Milan Linate (see Online news, October 19).
