The Lufthansa subsidiary Swiss, in cooperation with the SBB, offers a rail connection between Geneva and Zurich Airport. This is known as a “flight train” and is intended to improve the connection between western Switzerland and the hub in Kloten. Due to the corona pandemic, the number of flights between the two airports has been greatly reduced.
Some SBB trains between Geneva Cornavin and Zurich-Kloten Airport are now receiving flight numbers from Swiss. Travel with these trains to the turnstile is included in the flight price, according to the carrier. This should also apply from Geneva Airport train station. After Lugano and Basel, this is the third cooperation route within Switzerland.
“The close connection between western Switzerland and our global route network at Zurich Airport is important to us,” explains Swiss boss Thomas Klühr. “This expansion of the flight offer to Geneva offers our passengers even more choice when planning their travel with Swiss. With the offer we are also meeting the increasing need of our guests for flexible combinations of the two modes of transport ”.
