New Geneva service for London City Airport

Fri, 23 Oct, 2009

Baboo has confirmed it is to begin operating a route between London City Airport and Geneva.

The new twice daily service will take off for the first time on October 25th 2009, with fares available from £74 one way.

Jacques Bankir, chief executive officer of Geneva-based Baboo, said he was pleased that his airline would be working with the "most user-friendly airport in Europe" when it begins flying from London.

The Geneva flights are also being marketed as part of connecting services to Florence and Venice, with London City Airport's chief executive Richard Gooding claiming that they will be the quickest way to travel from London to the Italian cities.

"Regardless of having to make a stop in Geneva, passengers travelling from London City Airport will always experience a faster point-to-point journey thanks to our 15-minute check-in time and our location," said Mr Gooding.

The range of services available from London City Airport increased last month when British Airways began flying to New York.
