British Airways to increase Heathrow - Geneva flights

Travel News Asia 17 February 2004

British Airways and Swiss International Air Lines begin codesharing on each others services between London City Airport, Geneva and Zurich and between London Gatwick and Geneva from February 24.

Additionally, from the start of the 2004/2005 winter timetable on October 31, British Airways will increase from six to eight daily frequencies between London Heathrow and Geneva. All these services will be offered as BA/SWISS codeshare flights. The four daily Geneva-London frequencies currently operated by SWISS will be withdrawn.

In all, customers of both airlines will have a choice of 14 flights a day to Geneva from Londons three airports and up to eight daily flights between London City and Zurich, building on the existing codeshares on services from Heathrow to Zurich, Geneva and Basle.

Last year both airlines signed a legally binding memorandum of understanding entering into a commercial agreement, with plans to operate codeshare flights between the UK and Switzerland.
