Geneva Intl Airport Information

Basics
Geneva International is located 2 1/2 miles (4 km) northwest of central Geneva, "The Airport of Summits." The tourist information center is in the central train station. Try the airport Web site for useful information:

  • Arrivals and departures
  • Airport access maps
  • A gaggle of links to ski resorts, tourism. . .and more

Taxi
The taxi will cost about 30-35 Swiss francs ($20-23) and take about 10 to 15 minutes -- longer than the train. You can catch a taxi right outside the arrivals terminal.

Train
The Swiss Rail System (SBB) is by far one of the best ways in the world to get from the airport to the city. Trains leave every 10 to 15 minutes for Cornavin Station, from 5:30 A.M. to 12:20 A.M. First class fare is about 10 Swiss francs ($6) while second-class fare is 5 Swiss francs ($3).

Travel time is just 7 minutes, and the trains are dependable and very clean, with plenty of luggage space. There are direct connections from the airport station to Neuchatel, Basel, Bern, Lucerne, Zurich, other Swiss cities, as well as cities in France and Italy.

Rental Car
All major European companies are represented at the airport. Before you rent a car, look at the train service. For many cities in Switzerland a car is not needed; the train will get you to most Swiss cities with very frequent departures and put you right in the center of the city, where you can walk, or take a short taxi ride, to your final destination.
