The aerodrome serves as a transfer center for Swiss International Airlines and is one of the ports preferred by private jet charter companies in the region. It includes a network of mainly flights to metropolitan and leisure destinations in Europe, as well as some long-haul routes to North America, China and the Middle East.

The airport is located entirely within the borders of Switzerland, but its northern border extends along the Swiss-France border and the airport can be accessed from both countries. Shipping operations can be accessed from both countries, which makes Geneva a European Union shipping center even though Switzerland is not an EU member. The airport is partly connected to the municipality of Meyrin and partly to the municipality of Le Grand-Saconnex.

A brief history of Geneva International Airport

In 1919, a simple airport covering 54 hectares was established in Cointrin, near the city of Geneva. From 1926 to 1931, the wooden hangars of the airport were replaced by three concrete hangars. At that time, there was a small air traffic where Lufthansa flew from Berlin to Barcelona via Halle, Leipzig, Geneva and Marseille.

In 1937, the first concrete runway was built at the port, and with the construction of this runway. In 1938, 8 airline companies started to use the airport regularly. With the outbreak of the World War II, Swiss authorities banned all flights from Switzerland. Development work was carried out on the runway, which remained closed during the war period. As part of these works, the airport was enlarged. At that time, the authorities accepted the 2,3 million Swiss Franc project to build the first terminal at the airport, and in 1946 the new terminal, which is used as Terminal 2 today, became ready for use.

Considering the increasing jet traffic around the world in 1960, the existing runway was extended to 3.900 meters. For this expansion work, Switzerland requested land from France and after the positive result, the end point of the track was accepted as the border between the two countries. Construction of a second runway and a midfield round terminal was proposed in 1968, but ultimately the concept was never realized. On May 7, 1968, the Geneva Main Terminal opened, which is planned to host 7 million passengers a year. This number could only be reached in 1985.

In 1987, Geneva airport was connected to the Swiss rail system with a new station built near the main terminal. Since then, a number of changes have been made. Two of the three field terminals were upgraded with jet bridges, and a new terminal was built in front of the main terminal with 12 jet bridges plus two ground floor gates.
