Flights from London City to Geneva will resume on Saturday (19 December).
Four flights per week, operated by the airport’s home-based carrier BA CityFlyer, will connect passengers to the financial centre and key winter tourist destination.
The route was London City’s ninth most popular in 2019, connecting 190,000 passengers to Switzerland’s second largest city.
London City’s head of aviation Anne Doyere said: “This is a welcome Christmas boost for the airport and for our passengers who wish to travel to Geneva for leisure or business in the next few weeks, or to be reunited with friends and family over the festive period.”
“Geneva is a key centre for international business and finance and a hub for leisure travellers to access the winter ski resorts in the Alps. We are delighted that London City has been able to restore this vital connection in the run up to Christmas.
“We are hopeful that this news, alongside the positive developments on testing and quarantine in recent weeks, will increase passenger confidence and enable our airlines to schedule more routes and rotations throughout the winter season.”
Passengers arriving at the airport from Geneva will be able to take a Covid test after five days of self-isolation and be released from quarantine immediately if negative under the UK’s Test and Release scheme, which starts on Tuesday (15 December).
