Welcome to the Heart of Europe
Created in 1920, Genève Aéroport is one of the oldest airports on the Old Continent. It accompanied the beginnings of aviation and grew with the city and its region.
Property of the State of Geneva, Genève Aéroport is an autonomous public institution since 1994. The company has more than 1,000 employees and is the flagship of a site hosting some 200 other companies. Overall, the airport platform has thus nearly 11,000 employees.
In 2018, more than 17 million passengers used Genève Aéroport’s infrastructure. Geneva and its region are today connected to 148 destinations operated by 57 airlines.
Genève Aéroport followed the development of its region and it is a key link to the vitality of a region that is among the most dynamic in Europe. The history of the platform reflects the openness to the world of a city and canton counting 501,748 inhabitants, 34 international organisations, 250 NGOs, headquarters of 130 multinationals, not to mention many highly export-oriented companies.
The catchment area of Genève Aéroport includes six million people within a radius of 150 km, including one million inhabitants for Greater Geneva.
Genève Aéroport generates aeronautical revenues and non-aeronautical revenues that enable it to maintain its infrastructure and finance its investments each year. In August 2017, it decided to fund itself on the capital market and launched its first bond issue.
In 2018, Genève Aéroport achieved a net profit of CHF 85.1 million and generated an economic added value of more than 4 billion and more than 33,000 jobs. The company doesn’t receive any subsidies from public authorities. Each year, it pays half its profits to the State.
