Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Thursday, 12 June 2008

Etihad Airways is to boost its summer Geneva services from Sunday 22 June, as a result of increased demand from leisure travellers wishing to visit Switzerlands second biggest city.

Etihad currently operates four flights a week from its Abu Dhabi home-base to Geneva which will increase to five a week with an additional flight operating every Sunday until 7 September 2008.

Geert Boven, Etihad Airways executive vice president sales and services, said, Etihad offers a wealth of destinations for customers to visit during the summer months and Geneva is undoubtedly one of our top selling cities for the expatriate market and UAE nationals.

Demand for Etihads flights to Geneva has increased year-on-year and Etihad is pleased to respond once again to its customers and provide an additional service during the busy summer period.

Geneva was one of Etihads first destinations with flights to the Swiss city starting on 5 June 2004, only seven months after the launch of the airlines first flight. During the summer months it is one of Etihads most popular routes with an average seat factor of 85%.

In addition to its position as one of Europes most popular summer destinations, Geneva is also a host city for the UEFA Euro 2008 tournament which has led to greater demand from holiday makers looking to visit the city.

Etihad operates a three cabin Airbus A330-200 to Geneva which is configured to carry 10 passengers in first class, 26 passengers in business class and 164 passengers in economy class.

The additional summer flight, EY051, will depart Abu Dhabi every Sunday at 2.35pm and arrive in Geneva at 7.25pm. The return flight, EY052, will depart from Geneva at 9.50pm and arrive in Abu Dhabi at 6.05am the next morning. All times are local.
