The Atlanta-based carrier will become the third North American carrier to offer transatlantic services in Geneva.

According to data obtained by Aviacionline from Geneva Airport (GVA) statistics, 229,227 passengers flew between GVA and New York, this segment being Geneva’s main transatlantic market. Delta will soon be competing with SWISS and United in this sector.

This northern summer season, Geneva (GVA) reestablished its four pre-pandemic transatlantic services and has recorded an average occupancy rate of over 90%. With Delta’s new Swiss service, the airline is looking to attract some of the diplomatic, business and premium leisure passenger traffic.

In addition, the Atlanta-based airline’s entry is lucrative for the cargo industry, diversifying the capacity offered in the sector. The United States is currently the largest import and export market for airfreight trade.

This offering, which can be used for freight, will be beneficial for Geneva and certain sectors of the French-speaking industry, while avoiding unnecessary and costly transports through other logistics platforms.
