London Oxford Airport will get its first international scheduled flights with the introduction of Baboo services this December to Geneva in Switzerland.
Flights will operate weekly on Saturdays from December 19 using Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 aircraft. Baboo says seat only prices start from £78 one way, inclusive of all departure charges and taxes.
London Oxford Airport Managing Director, Steve Jones said: “We are delighted to introduce Geneva as our first international scheduled service and see this as a major turning point in the future of the Airport – we are a niche facility bringing bespoke destinations within a stone’s throw of the Oxford and Thames Valley market. Baboo is a highly regarded Swiss regional carrier, their Q400 fleet is perfectly suited to niche markets like ours and we look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with the airline.”
Baboo CEO, Jacques Bankir, said: “Baboo is delighted to be the first international airline to serve Oxford. Baboo is a Geneva-based niche carrier with an excellent reputation for service to exclusive destinations such as St Tropez, Biarritz or Venice.
“From the end of October, we will also launch a twice-daily prime time schedule between London City and Geneva.” The airline says that it operates a ‘full frills’ service.
