  • Bern Airport (Flughafen Bern-Belp)
    If you're headed for Bern or the Bernese Oberland from London, Amsterdam, or a handful of other European cities, the Swiss capital's airport is worth investigating.

  • Geneva Airport
    French Switzerland's largest airport is only six minutes from downtown Geneva, with direct railway connections to Lausanne, the Rhône Valley, and Italy.

  • Zürich Airport
    Where but in Switzerland would engineers have invented a baggage cart that goes down escalators to an underground train station?
