Trip to Geneva Part 1

I've just returned from a trip to CERN near Geneva, Switzerland, so here are the videos/pics!

London Gatwick (LGW/EGKK) to Geneva (GVA/LSGG)
Flight EZS8464 leaves from Gatwick's north terminal. Having arrived very early for the 8:15am flight, the inbound flight was delayed due to air traffic control strikes in France. This flight was operated by Easyjet Switzerland, the aircraft is Geneva based and had a Franco-Swiss crew. Waiting at the gate was Airbus A320 HB-JZR, which first flew in September 2009. After nearly an hours delay, we left a rainy Gatwick, so rainy in fact that the take off video was no good! One hour later we were on approach to Geneva's rwy23:

Geneva airport was surprisingly busy I thought. It was interesting to see the amount of bizjets and flag carrier airlines (Alitalia, Lufthansa, Air France, Brussels Airlines, KLM, British Airways, Aer Lingus, Finnair, El Al, Saudi Arabian, Qatar, Etihad, TAP, Iberia and of course Swiss), most of which operating A320 series aircraft - it seems to be a very popular type at Geneva! We then got free train tickets to the city center and after 5 minutes on the train we were there. Part 2 coming soon.
