History of Geneva Cointrin Airport
It was near the village of Cointrin that the Grand Council of Geneva decided to set up an airport in 1919. The runway was 1200 m long at the time and it was not until 1946 that the first terminal was built.
In the 1950s, Switzerland exchanged land with France to extend the runway to 3900 m.
Since 2001, the airport has annually hosted a major aeronautics exhibition: EBACE.
For your stay in Geneva, AEROAFFAIRES suggests that you book a room at the superb Beau-Rivage Genève hotel, or at the Four Seasons, the city’s emblematic address on the shores of Lake Geneva.
For a refined cuisine, go to the restaurant Bayview by Michel Roth. If you want to continue the evening in a chic and trendy cocktail bar, the Glow Bar + Art is the place for you.
Do not miss the visit of the Patek Philippe Museum, where impressive timepieces are on display.
During your stay, you can also discover the famous Geneva water jet, located in the heart of the harbour.
Finally, AEROAFFAIRES offers you a point-to-point helicopter rental service to connect the arrival airport to the city centre; an opportunity to discover the city from the sky and optimise your time.
