As part of its winter schedule, from October 26 Etihad Regional will introduce more services between Geneva and other key European destinations including Nice, Bordeaux, Venice and Toulouse.
Due to seasonal passenger demand the airline has plans to operate five flights per week to Nice and six times per week to Bordeaux, as well as upping its Venice and Toulouse flights so they become daily services.
“This increase in our services is indicative of the huge confidence we have in the Swiss market and underlines our enduring commitment to build an attractive, well-connected regional network which offers our guests more choice and greater flexibility when travelling to Switzerland and beyond,” explained Maurizio Merlo, Etihad Regional’s CEO. “We are increasing frequencies and doubling our services out of Geneva in line with strong demand, not only to serve the point-to-point market, but also to enhance connectivity beyond the Geneva hub to numerous key destinations across Europe.”
All additional flights will be operated on a 50-seat Saab 2000 configured with 5 premium economy seats and 45 economy seats. They will bring Etihad Regional’s year-round services to European destinations to 25 in total.
The airline’s fleet currently consists of eight Saab 2000s and four 68-seat ATR 72-500s.
