Emirates launches Geneva flights
Emirates has launched a new route connecting Geneva with Dubai. The inaugural service departed on Wednesday 1 June, carrying a VIP delegation including Emirates’ President Tim Clark.
“This launch, in particular, has a strong international feel about it – linking Singapore via Dubai, as a global aviation hub and centre for business and tourism with Geneva, a home to so many international organisations and an important financial and banking centre,” said Clark. “On the back of our robust financial results, the airline continues to drive forward – connecting key cities around the world.”
“We are very pleased to welcome Emirates in Geneva. The airline is a worldwide reference in terms of reputation and quality of service,” added Francois Longchamp, State Councillor of the Canton of Geneva and President of the Board of Geneva Airport.
The Dubai-Geneva service will be operated daily using a combination of a Boeing 777-200LR and Boeing 777-300ER, all arranged in a three-class configuration offering First Class Private Suites and lie-flat seats in Business Class. Each 777 operating the Geneva route will also be able to carry 15-20 tonnes of cargo.
Geneva becomes Emirates’ second destination in Switzerland, following Zurich, and its 112th global destination.
