The airport celebrates its centenary anniversary


27.02.2020

Genève Aéroport is a hundred years old! Some twenty events are planned throughout the year to celebrate this historic landmark. To kick-start the festivities, an official ceremony will be held on Friday 28 February. At the same time, there will be animation for passengers and visitors in Terminal 1 and even some presents up for grabs. 

To celebrate this incredible adventure, Genève Aéroport, its employees and partners have put together a rich and diverse programme of events. Taking place over the course of the year, the centenary’s slogan is « Our airport, my history », reflecting the locals’ affection for the airport. 

An invitation-only official opening ceremony will kick off celebrations on Friday 28 February in the old terminal. Passengers can enjoy animation throughout the day in the airport. On the agenda are mini massages and express yoga sessions to help travellers relax before taking off, a photo stand and silhouette artist to immortalise the day along with a circus workshop and magician to entertain children. All set to the notes of the numerous concerts taking place throughout the day. A surprise event is also planned from 17:00 to 18:00 to enhance the celebrations.  

What’s more, a documentary by pilot and journalist Isabelle Dufour will be screened all day in the press room. Interviews, previously unseen clips and archive images will delve into the history of the airport. 

For this very special occasion, the airport will be decorated in its new visual identity dedicated to the centenary. Festive and colourful, the decorations were designed by a student at Geneva University of Art and Design (HEAD) and selected following a contest launched by the airport. 

Genève Aéroport, its employees and partners are extremely excited to share this historic day with you.
