The airport is just 4km outside of Geneva City Centre and straddles the border with France and Switzerland. The airport is undergoing a large expansion programme, with the renovated T1+ terminal officially opened in November 2009, offering improved passenger facilities both airside and landside, more gates for planes and revised security procedures to meet Geneva Airport’s Schengen requirements

Geneva Airport transfers

Although Switzerland is not in the EU, it has signed up to Schengen and the changes to security procedures now mean that when you are departing from Geneva airport you will go through security at the entrance to departures, rather than at the gates before boarding your plane. As with all airports, Geneva follows the strict guidelines regarding restrictions to hand luggage. For the latest information on this, check with your airline.
