Geneva International Airport (GVA)

 

Geneva International Airport, commonly known as Cointrin Airport, is an airport serving Geneva, Switzerland. It is located 4 km (2.5 mi) from the Geneva city centre and has direct connections to motorways, bus lines and railways (SBB-CFF-FFS). Its northern limit runs along the Swiss-French border and the airport can be accessed from both countries.

 

Passengers on flights to or from France do not have to go through Swiss customs and immigration controls if they remain in the French sector of the airport. The freight operations are also accessible from both countries, making Geneva a European Union freight hub although Switzerland is not a member of the EU.

 

The airport has a single concrete runway, which is the longest in Switzerland with a length of 3,900 m (12,795 ft), and a smaller, parallel, grass runway for light aircraft. It is a major hub for EasyJet Switzerland and Flybaboo, a lesser hub for Swiss International Air Lines and the former hub of Swiss World Airways, which ceased operations in 1998.

 

Geneva International Airport has extensive convention facilities and hosts an office of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the world headquarters of Airports Council International (ACI).In 2010, the airport served 11,785,522 passengers and 177,401 aircraft movements. There is a railway station with trains to Geneva-Cornavin station, and other cities in Switzerland.

 

There are local buses that stop at the airport. There are also buses to and from Annecy, France, and also seasonal buses to ski resort Chamonix in France and ski resorts in Switzerland.
