Geneva Flights FAQs

A flight from London to Geneva Airport takes approximately one hour and 40 minutes.

You can fly to Geneva from London City Airport, London Heathrow Airport and London Gatwick Airport.

Geneva is busy between June and August, when you can enjoy sunny weather and make the most of the city’s outdoor activities, like swimming in Lake Geneva. You could save by visiting in February or March instead, when it’s less crowded, or enjoy a winter break in November or December when the city is at its most magical. Have a look at our low fare finder to find out how you could save on flights to Geneva.

There’s lots to do in Geneva during the warmer months, from strolling the sunlit alleys of the Old Town to taking a boat out on the lake. The weather is at its sunniest between June and August, so if you’re planning on spending lots of time outdoors, summer is the best time to visit.

There are lots of ways to make your trip to Geneva fit your budget. Head to the Paquis and Plainpalais neighbourhoods for the most affordable restaurants. Les Grottes is a good option for pubs and bars if you want to make your Swiss Francs stretch a little further. You can also walk to lots of places in the city, and if you need to get around quickly, Swiss public transport is usually a little more budget-friendly than taxis.

You can get from Geneva Airport to the city centre quickly and easily by train, bus or taxi. The journey by train takes around six minutes, and it’s around 20 minutes by bus or 15 minutes by taxi.

There’s a well-connected public transport system here made up of trams, buses and trains that can take you all over the city – these include mouettes, Geneva’s yellow public taxi-boats.

You can hire a car with British Airways if you want to see more of what Northern Ireland has to offer. You’ll receive great benefits, with all mandatory charges included and 24-hour customer support, plus you’ll collect Avios points on every rental.

There’s something for everyone in Geneva. Start by taking the tram across the River Arve to Place du Marche and spending an afternoon sipping Swiss hot chocolate in a cosy bohemian cafe. History lovers can explore the Patek Phillipe museum and see the gleaming vintage timepieces as they delve into Geneva’s long watchmaking heritage. Hop onto a mouette taxi-boat and sail across Lake Geneva for idyllic views of the city from the water or get to know Geneva’s manicured green spaces. Don’t miss the English Garden, where you can see L'horloge Fleurie, the famous botanical flower clock.
