Flights arrivals are well organized in geneva airport. You can pick up the travelers downstair. There are two différent arrivals and departure in gva airport, you have the geneva airport arrivals french side and geneva airport arrivals swiss side. More than 80 % of the trafic go and come to swiss side. 

As a french and living in Annecy, i have always take of and land at swiss side. It’s easier and more cool to spend time in the airport. French side is very small. 

When you have get back your luggage and go out of the international area, you have directly in front of you the tourim office desk. You can have all information you need about geneva, switzerland and also French Alps.

If you have to wait in the airport before take your plane or in waiting your taxi, somebody who must pick you up, you can go to the departure floor. Go in the direction of food and beverage area on the left side. Just before the toilet turn right and get the elevator to go to the geneva airport lounge “Altitude retaurant” at the 3 floor. You can eat or simply have a soft drink (juice, coke, coffee, tea…etc) This place is very cool and you have a nice view on all the plane and watch them take off or land.


Geneva airport to train station

The train station is next to the airport, just few minutes walking. Its very easy to get the train for all of your destinations. When you go out of the airport turn on right, but don’t worry it’s very well indicated. If you are not sure , just ask somebody and you will get the right direction. You don’t have to walk more than 5 minutes. Upper 7 minutes it probably mean you are in the wrong way. 


Geneva airport to city

The trains from geneva airport go all to geneva downtow “cornavin railway station”. It is the best solution to get geneva city and also the cheapest and the faster solution. The tickets are about 3 swiss franc and you can use it for an hour. You can also take the taxi if you are tired after your flight and if you want directly go to your hotel. But really, if your hotel is just close to the downtown railway station, you don’t need to take taxi. 

The other solution is to take the bus but is not best solution. Your decision will depend about where you are located to stay in Geneva.
