The flight route from London (LON) to Geneva (GVA) is a popular European route in the United Kingdom. This route is particularly popular amongst business travellers as Geneva is the location of several important UN institutions, and other governmental and non-governmental international organisations. Geneva is also a favourite destination for holidaymakers heading to Switzerland to go skiing in winter or hillwalking during the warmer months. Between 19 and 26 services are operated every day on this route. The flight time is only 1 hour and 38 minutes, and airlines operating a direct flight include scheduled and low-cost airlines such as Swiss, British Airways orEasyjet. The two cities are located at a distance of just under 1000 miles and flying is the most convenient and quickest option.
Due to the wide choice of airlines operating on this route and the large number of flights per day, a low cost flight should be relatively easy to find. Comparing prices on a flight price comparison website is advisable. School holidays and peak seasons should be avoided. Expect to pay around £80 return for an air ticket purchased a few months ahead of the date of travel on a midweek departure.
Geneva International Airport is situated at only 2.5 miles from Geneva city centre with good public transport links to the city. The airport has its own railway station with trains serving Geneva as well as other cities and towns in Switzerland. Services to Geneva from London depart from a number of London airports. Low cost flights leave from London-Gatwick, London-Luton and Stansted; scheduled services depart from Heathrow and London City. Before buying an air ticket, it is therefore important to consider which of the departure airports is the most convenient.
