The strict measures limiting access to the airport to just passengers holding a travel ticket for a confirmed flight have been lifted. Given the dramatic drop in passenger numbers today and over the coming days, the screening process implemented last week is no longer needed.
Passengers are requested to respect the social distance between them in all waiting places. This is essential in the fight against the spread of the virus. Passengers are also asked to respect this distance with employees.
Passengers are requested to comply with the other hygiene rules laid down by the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH). It is strongly recommended that you wash your hands regularly and do not touch your face, sneeze or cough into a disposable tissue or the crook of your elbow, immediately throw the tissue into a waste bin and wash your hands. The hygiene measures communicated by the FOPH remain the most effective. Everyone is responsible for applying them on a daily basis to protect themselves and to protect those around them.
At the request of the Swiss health authorities, Genève Aéroport has implemented information measures for passengers from all over the world, as well as measures to trace people during direct flights from China. Health authorities are not currently recommending other specific measures for arrivals or departures at Swiss international airports.
Following the decision taken by the Federal Council regarding shops, all shops and restaurants at the airport are closed.
