Situated along the banks of Europe’s largest lake, Lake Geneva, and bordered by the Jura Mountains to the west and the French Alps to the east, Geneva’s bucolic surroundings belies its significance as a global powerhouse. Geneva is the worldwide center for diplomacy and boasts the highest number of international organizations globally.
With diplomats and world leaders frequenting Geneva to impact important issues, it comes as no surprise that Geneva is a top destination for private charter flights in Europe.
The World Health Organization, United Nations and Red Cross are among the numerous international organizations based in Geneva. Drawing representatives from across the globe, almost half of Geneva’s resident population is composed of foreign nationals. Traveling by private jet allows travelers headed to and returning from important meetings to accommodate their tightly packed schedules, to work or rest en-route and to arrive ready to manage their important agendas.
Beyond its contribution to important social issues, Geneva has much to offer. There are 23 ski resorts within an hour’s drive of Geneva. That alone is reason to charter a private jet to Geneva. In summer, skiing in the mountains gives way to hiking, and the lake becomes alive with waterskiing and sailing. Geneva Cointrin Airport (LSGG, GVA) welcomes jet charters into Geneva.
The third busiest private airport in Europe for private charter flights, Cointrin operates with the exacting efficiency for which the Swiss are famous. Located just 4 km from Geneva’s city center, private jet travelers can quickly make their way by train or car from Geneva Airport into the city. If you’ve taken a charter flight to Geneva in order to ski or hike the mountains, they are easily accessible from Cointrin as well.
