Take flight! New destination for a winter or spring break as easyJet starts Geneva service

By Andrew Diprose, editor

Bournemouth Airport has seen the first of easyJet’s seasonal flights to Geneva take off.

It offers another destination for a winter or spring break – and some of the best skiing in Europe.

The flights to the Swiss capital are operating up to four times a week until March 26, 2022.

And while many people head to Geneva to ski, there is also an old town with cobbled streets, gothic architecture and ancient city walls to explore plus lakeside promenades and cafés.

All overlooked by snow-capped mountains.

Steve Gill, Managing Director, Bournemouth Airport, pictured left, said: “Geneva is the gateway to the Alps and a beautiful destination.

“easyJet’s regular flights make it easy to get back to the slopes this winter.

“It’s the latest winter holiday destination available from Bournemouth Airport so if you’re looking for snow, sun or a European city break, there’s plenty of choice from your local airport.”

Bournemouth Airport now has 36 destinations in 16 countries in its schedule.

Countries reached directly from the airport include:

  • Barbados (fly/cruise)
  • Croatia (Zadar)
  • Cyprus (Paphos)
  • France (Bergerac)
  • Greece (Corfu, Crete, Kefalonia, Rhodes, Zante)
  • Hungary (Budapest)
  • Italy (Lake Como, Lake Garda, Lake Maggiore)
  • Ireland (Dublin)
  • Lapland (Enontekio, Pajala, Ivalo)
  • Norway (fly-cruise)
  • Poland (Krakow, Wroclaw)
  • Portugal (Faro, Lisbon)
  • Spain (Alicante, Girona, Gran Canaria, Ibiza, Lanzarote, Majorca, Malaga, Menorca, Murcia, Tenerife)
  • Switzerland (Geneva).

As well as the wide range of destinations, Bournemouth Airport says the benefits of flying local include a quick journey to the airport, parking close to the terminal, short check-in and security times and total step-free access from the terminal entrance to flight boarding.
