French Connections

Geneva airport covers 340 hectares (840 acres), it is located 5 kilometres (3 miles) north of Geneva. The airport is situated between 2 countries, part of the airport is in Switzerland and part in France.

More than 60 airlines depart from the airport which has more than 80 destinations.

The main Swiss sector of the airport is accessible from the N1 airport motorway. From France, take the A40 (motorway) to the border and then the N1. 

To avoid Swiss territory entirely: drive directly to the French sector via Ferney-Voltaire, near Collonges on the D-984; at Ferney-Voltaire, follow the signs for Geneva and, just before Swiss customs, take the road on the right to the airport French sector.
