4. GO FRENCH
This is a little secret of ours but if you really want to avoid the rush and the queues we recommend going through airport security on the French side. It’s a small section of the airport close to the car rental sector (French) and rarely has a person waiting to pass through security. It’s saved us from many a last minute dash to our flights AND makes us feel that we are in our own private airport terminal. But shhhh, don’t tell everyone about it!
5. ENJOY FAMILY TIME
Geneva Airport does family and has created a family space within the airport to make family travel that bit easier. A great alternative if you don’t want to book into a VIP lounge. Located at the Mezzanine level in transit/departure area there is a small children’s play area which is for under 5s. It’s staffed and parents can enter too. There is a colouring table, games, slides, books, armchairs, swings, a baby-changing corner, nursing area, kitchen and rest area for children. It’s completely free of charge.
Let your kids Burn off any extra energy before the constraints of a homeward flight.
6. THE PRIVATE JET TERMINAL
What better way to enjoy airport travel and avoid travelling with the masses! Geneva Airport’s private jet terminal is Terminal 3, where PrivatPort, Jet Aviation, and Tag Aviation are the 3 major private charter companies operating. From here you can also take a helicopter to all the major ski areas including Morzine-Avoriaz, Les Gets, Meribel and Tignes. Your BC Concierge can arrange this for you.
7. GET OUT OF TOWN (OR AT LEAST THE AIRPORT!)
Spending more than just a few hours at Geneva Airport? Well, Geneva City centre is only 5 km away and on a direct train line from the airport. It is well worth a visit if you have time . The train station is located underneath the airport and all trains head into Geneva central where you can walk around the old town and take in the famous Lake. Go hands-free and leave your baggage at the Left Luggage Facility located in the train terminal.
