Why fly business class?
In order to get the most out of your trip to Geneva, you’ll want to be able to hit the ground running as soon as you get there. Being able to rest up during your flight is ideal, but we know how uncomfortable it can be trying to rest if you’re travelling economy - especially when flights to Geneva from the US can take over 13 hours.
However, by choosing to fly business class, you’ll be guaranteed a comfortable, relaxing journey. Stretch your legs right out with spacious seating and even lay flat if you want to get a few hours sleep to feel refreshed when you land.
