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.[3] It is located at the end of the standard gauge Lausanne–Geneva line of Swiss Federal Railways.[1]

The station is 250 metres away from the airport terminal via a covered walkway, and very near to the Palexpo fairground.

Services[edit]

The station is a terminus station served by an average of five trains an hour. They all call at the Geneva main station (Genève-Cornavin) (6 minutes away) and continue to Lucerne, Zürich, St. Gallen, or the Valais Alps (Brig):[4]
