The Geneva Airport railway station (French: Gare de Genève-Aéroport) is a train station located underground next to the terminal building of Geneva International Airport (French: Aéroport international de Genève) (IATA code: GVA), in Grand-Saconnex, Geneva, Switzerland.[1]

The station is 250 metres away from the airport terminal via a covered walkway, and very near to the Palexpo fairground. Like Zürich Airport railway station, it is an underground station.
