French sector

One special feature of Genève Aéroport is that it has a French sector that allows its users to:

  • check their bags and take an internal flight to a French airport without having to pass through Swiss territory;
  • For some airlines flying  to destinations other than France, check in and go to the international transit area.
  • make your way easily to the nearby areas of France (Pays de Gex, Divonne-les-Bains, Bellegarde, French Jura Mountains, the departments of Ain, Jura, etc.).
  • rent a car from a French agency.
