Swiss has joined the Cyber Monday party with return flights from London (Gatwick) to Geneva at an impressive £57.74 all-in return. Zurich flights from Zurich are also discounted.
Or, to quote Swiss’s slightly Germanic wording “Today, Cyber Monday, our flight steerers feel very generous and opened up all flights for departures from the UK to Geneva and Zurich“.
This is a one-day only sale, so you need to book by midnight today (Central European Time). Discounted tickets are valid for departure 1 January – 31 March 2015, and availability is currently very good.
Here’s a random example booking in February 2014.
You can also get from London Heathrow to Zurich at £108 return. While the Geneva flight initially jumps out as substantially better value, it is hand luggage only. The Zurich return includes 23kg checked luggage and you can take your skis or snowboard for free.
It’s worth also mentioning that good old Ryanair are offering London Stansted-Basel returns at £26 in January and February. The experience will be substantially less pleasant than Swiss, but just to let you know…
