Re: 6am Flight from GVA airport

When you arrive back in BSL, there will be a passport control, even when you arrive from an airport in the schengen zone(swiss personal)

Re: 6am Flight from GVA airport

It is a sad fact that unhelpful suicidal people will jump in front of trains. For this reason we always travel one rail connection earlier, hopefully to arrive on time if necessary by a different route.

i had this experience about a month ago. Two morning trains to Geneva airport were cancelled, something I had never seen before, that we had needed to make our flight. So we even left very early and ended up missing our flight. Of which SBB said as there are no guarantees, the best they could do was return our money to the airport, but not our return ticket even. We lost the cost of the flight tickets as well.

Apparently two different people jumped the same morning. Strange to lose so much money and our flights when we had actually left almost 2.5 hours earlier then normal for our flights and not even got a real answer nor apology from anyone.

Are you talking 'currently' or what happened several weeks ago? Having landed at both French & Swiss airports in the last 10 days & not experienced this.
