France sector dedicated to air freight

The airport has a France sector dedicated to air freight. A customs road links the airport to the French territory (municipality of Ferney-Voltaire, Ain). The use of this route allows the various users to ship or receive goods quickly without crossing border controls and while remaining subject only to French and European procedures.

Coming from the departments of Haute-Savoie, Savoie or Isère, users can take the A41 motorway (from Annecy, Chambéry or Grenoble) to reach the airport’s freight hall.

Transit procedures on Swiss territory have been greatly simplified (T documents).

French sector schedules:

  • Monday to Friday from 08:00 to 19:00 (depending on customs hours)
  • Saturday from 08:00 to 12:00 (closed on Sundays)
