About Geneva Airport

Geneva International Airport (GVA) is one of the busiest airports in Europe. It's a major hub for airlines such as EasyJet, Transavia, KLM, and British Airways.

Over 13 million passengers arrive at Geneva airport each year and it has more than 120 direct international flight destinations.

During the winter Geneva is without a doubt the most popular airport - used by skiers and snowboarders travelling to ski resorts such as TignesLes Arcs and Méribel.

It's situated between the Jura mountain range and the huge Lake of Geneva (or Lac Léman). So, which ever way you approach, the landing view from the aircraft is spectacular.

The airport has a legal responsibility to the environment and has set high objectives - check out Geneva airport's environmental page.

Geneva Airport Guide

Geneva airport is around 4 kilometres from the centre of the city of Geneva, Genève in French (pronounced Jen-ev).

It's easy to travel between the airport and the city by bus or train and only takes 5 minutes. The city centre is beautiful and is a nice way to spend a morning if you have some spare time.

The train station is just outside the main terminal - it takes about 5 minutes to walk there. It's an easy walk, with escalators down to the platforms.

Trains to the city centre are extremely frequent. They arrive at Geneva's central station - Gare Cornavin - which is the first stop.
