  • Is transport pass will be given?

    Hello, The International Airport of Geneva is offering all arriving passengers a free "Tout Genève" ticket, which is valid for 80 minutes. The ticket is available from the automatic ticket machine located in the baggage reclaim zone and allows you to use public transport in the city of Geneva on the day of your arrival only, together with your boarding pass. Our guests get a free public transport ticket at check-in (for bus, tram, boat and train from/to main train station to/from airport), valid for the duration of their stay in the whole city. See you soon in Geneva,
