Where is Geneva Airport?  


Geneva is one of the world's major centres of international diplomacy. It has served as headquarters of the International Committee of the Red Cross, and the United Nations, and is currently home the World Health Organization.


Many tourists bound for Chamonix and Mont Blanc in France pass through the city, as Geneva is the closest airport to Chamonix.

The airport is partially located within 2 communes, Grand-Saconnex and Meyrin.


GVA's northern limit runs along the border between Switzerland and France. The terminal has been designed so the airport can be accessed from both countries.
