Created in 1920, Genève Aéroport is one of the oldest airports of the old continent. It accompanied the beginnings of aviation and grew with the city. In 2018, more than 17.4 million passengers used this infrastructure and it is constantly developing to meet the growing demand. Today, Geneva is connected to more than 140 destinations operated by 60 airlines. With the construction of the East Wing, a building designed to accommodate boarding lounges primarily intended for long-haul flights, which is to be launched in 2020, Genève Aéroport gives itself the means to accommodate its traffic with better quality services, and increases its international attractiveness. Property of the State of Geneva, Genève Aéroport is an autonomous public institution since 1994. The company employs more than 1,000 employees who provide nearly 200 different functions. It is the flagship of a site that hosts some 200 other companies employing around 11,000 employees. Genève Aéroport generates aeronautical income (landing and passenger royalties etc.) and non-aeronautical revenues (parking, estate management, shops and advertising, etc.), which enable it every year to cope with the maintenance of its infrastructure and to finance its investments and its development. The company doesn’t receive any subsidies from any public authority. Each year, it pays half its profits to the State.
