Geneva Cointrin International Airport

Geneva Cointrin International Airport (IATA: GVA, ICAO: LSGG) is an airport in Geneva, Switzerland. It is located at 46°15′N 6°8′E, 5 km from the city centre and has direct connections to expressways, bus lines and railways (SBB-CFF-FFS). Its northern limit runs along the Swiss-French border and the airport can be accessed from both countries. Passengers on flights to or from France do not have to go through Swiss cutoms and immigration controls if they remain in the French sector of the airport. The freight operations are also accessible from both countries, making Geneva a European Union freight hub although Switzerland does not belong in the EU.

The airport has a single large runway. It is a major hub for easyJet and a lesser hub for Swiss International Air Lines. Geneva Cointrin has extensive convention facilities and hosts the headquarters of the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

In 2005, the airport served more than 9,411,105 passengers. (Source: Wikipedia)
