Geneva on track to welcome GCC travellers soon, Tourism & Conventions Foundation says

The city of Geneva has started to softly open up, while still maintaining the necessary security measures to ensure the health and safety of all citizens and visitors, according to the Geneva Tourism & Conventions Foundation.

Starting from May 11, Geneva’s restaurants, shops, markets, travel agencies, museums, libraries and sports facilities were reopened with precautionary measures being applied. The re-opening plan consists of different phases where with each entity in Geneva will gradually take a step closer to being fully operational.

On June 8, Phase 3 will take effect and swimming pools, theatres, cinemas, zoos, botanical gardens, animal parks and mountain transport services will be open to the public again.

“We’re optimistic about the current situation in Geneva and looking forward for more positive developments highlighted with the opening of airports for international flights soon,” says Franck Romanet, Market Manager GCC & India at Geneva Tourism & Conventions Foundation.

“With the restrictions in Geneva being lifted and having more airlines announcing their return flights and connecting the GCC to our city, we hope to see more and more tourists from the GCC region travelling again to their favourite destination, Geneva,” Romanet continues.

Every year, Geneva welcomes the highest numbers of travellers from the GCC compared to other Swiss cities, the Foundation highlights.
