Emirates has announced the expansion of its operation in Switzerland with the addition of a second daily service to Geneva effective June 1, 2016.

The second daily flight will double capacity on the route and represents an overall increase of 26% for Emirates in Switzerland 

The new flight will be operated by a state-of-the-art Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class configuration, with eight Private Suites in First Class, 42 lie flat seats in Business Class, and 310 spacious seats in Economy Class. 

“With natural landmarks like Lake Geneva, the Alps and Jura mountains, Geneva is an attractive destination. It also hosts the highest number of international organisations, like Europe’s United Nations and the Red Cross, making it a global hub for diplomacy and banking. Demand is strong year-round, with high traffic from Thailand, Australia, Hong Kong and the Indian Ocean, with travellers visiting the city for business and pleasure," said Thierry Aucoc, Emirates’ senior vice president, commercial operations, Europe and Russia. 

"Aside from more convenience for the growing number of Swiss travellers visiting Dubai, the additional frequency from Geneva will allow us to meet high demand and offer better connectivity for those travelling to countries like Africa, Indian Ocean islands, Bali and Thailand via our ultra-modern hub,” added Aucoc.
