The airline launches three new destinations from Geneva and consolidates its partnerships
Baboo is expanding the services it will offer this winter. It is introducing direct flights from Geneva to London City (11 times per week), Milan Malpensa (12 times) and Marseille (12 times). Flights to London City and Marseille will be operated by Baboo on a code-share basis with Air France.
But that’s not all. From these destinations, the Baboo and Air France networks offer some excellent connections to other cities. For example, it will be possible to fly between Geneva and Dublin, Edinburgh or Dundee via London City twice a day at prime time. Geneva-Milan will be served twice a day (once non-stop, once via Marseille), Milan-Marseille once a day (non-stop) and Geneva-Marseille twice a day (once non-stop, once via Milan).
“Despite the crisis, Baboo continues to expand, in particular by strengthening its partnerships,” commented Jacques Bankir, CEO of Baboo. “We are proud to serve London, which is the number one destination from Geneva and particularly London City Airport, which is the most “user friendly” airport there is. As for Milan and Marseille, our prime-time flights and the frequencies we offer are designed to attract our business and leisure clients.”
