Geneva International Airport
Straddling the border with France, Switzerland's second busiest airport flies 13 million passengers a year from its single terminal. Geneva International Airport is 4 km (2.5 miles) north-west of the city centre, a six-minute trip by train.
Train is the quickest and most direct way to travel between the airport and central Geneva. Trains run every 12-20 minutes from 5.30am until 12am and take just six minutes to reach the city centre. Access between the airport and train station is direct, but as it's around a five-minute walk from Arrivals you'll want your bags to have wheels. Pick up your free Unireso ticket from the machine in the baggage collection area of Arrivals. Available to all passengers, the ticket offers unlimited access to public transport for 80 minutes.
Bus number 10 runs every ten minutes from in front of the railway station at Departures, taking around 15 minutes. Pick up your free Unireso ticket from the machine in the baggage collection area of Arrivals. Available to all passengers, the ticket offers unlimited access to public transport for 80 minutes.
A taxi to central Geneva from outside Arrivals takes around 15 minutes and costs around SFr35. This is the most convenient option if you have a lot of luggage.
The airport is 4 km (2.5 miles) from the city centre, a journey time of around 15 minutes. Head southeast along Route de Meyrin and follow the signs to the city centre. Car hire is available at the airport; always return a hire car to the same sector (either French or Swiss) of the airport that it was collected from, otherwise a hefty fee will be charged.
