SWISS International Air Lines has announced that it will resume flights between Geneva Airport (GVA) and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) on select days of the week starting in December 2021. SWISS will operate up to four flights a week to JFK from Dec. 14, 2021.

United Airlines has also announced that its service between Geneva Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) will resume on Nov. 1, 2021, with four flights a week.

The two airlines are codeshare partners and members of the Star Alliance.

The Geneva Airport, which is just 15 minutes from the Vaud border, is the major international gateway for the canton. The decision by SWISS and United is vital for leisure travel in the capital city of Lausanne, home of the Olympic Museum, as well as in such lakeside cities as Montreux and Vevey. The timing of the announcement is also ideal for the start of the 2021-22 ski season at winter resorts, including Villars, Les Diablerets and Leysin, as well as at Glacier 3000.
