Geneva Airport History

The first landings on the land now known as Geneva Cointrin Airport took place in 1919 on a field in Cointrin, just outside Geneva. In 1945 the runway was lengthened to 1200m and in 1946 a terminal building was opened.

During the 1950s the runway was further extended through a land exchange with the French government.

Geneva Cointrin's increased passenger numbers led to terminal and runway expansion from 1960-1990.

In 2001 the airport's position as an important business jet terminal was recognised with the first EBACE exhibition, which takes place annually in the airport's convention halls.
