Travel information

By plane

The Geneva International Airport is located approximately 650 meters from the Palexpo exhibition and convention centre. Therefore, it can be easily reached from the airport and/or the airport’s railway station within a 10-minute walk. However, there is also the possibility of taking a 3-minute ride with bus no. 5 to „Grand-Saconnex, Palexpo“ (daily departures at 10 minute intervals).

You can get a free public transport ticket (Zone 10) valid for 80 minutes from the time of printing the ticket by the machine. The ticket machine is located at the luggage retrieval hall and prints the free transportation ticket without requirements or limitations. The free ticket entitles you to take an airport train (train from the airport to the center), bus, tram and boat.
