Geneva International Airport (IATA: GVA, ICAO: LSGG), commonly known as Cointrin Airport, is an airport serving Geneva, Switzerland. It is located 4 km (2.5 mi) northwest of the city centre and has direct connections to motorways, bus lines and railways (SBB-CFF-FFS). Its northern limit runs along the Swiss-French border and the airport can be accessed from both countries. Passengers on flights to or from France do not have to go through Swiss customs and immigration controls if they remain in the French sector of the airport. The freight operations are also accessible from both countries, making Geneva a European Union freight hub although Switzerland is not a member of the EU. The airport is partially located within the commune of Meyrin and partially in the commune of Grand-Saconnex.
