Genève Aéroport has commenced its CAP2030 project to transform the main terminal (T1) at Geneva Airport (GVA), with the award of a contract to Losinger-Marazzi-Bouygues (LMB).

Work on the first stage of this project will commence in 2026 and will include the construction of a bus-train-car-bike-airplane interchange. This initial stage is scheduled to be completed in 2032.

Ultimately, the CAP2030 project will replace the airport’s T1, which has been operational since 1968. The project has an estimated value of 600 million CHF (622 million EUR).

Through this investment, Genève Aéroport aims to meet high passenger standards, offer more space and comfort, eliminate infrastructure degradation, improve multimodal transport connections, reinforce commercial capacity, and improve energy efficiency.

This mission is supported by Genève Aéroport’s partnership with the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB). SBB has previously agreed to the creation of a new multimodal platform at the airport, which will include significant adaptations to the current station, including the demolition and replacement of its upper floors.

Alongside improving multimodality, the first stage of the contract will also include a 40,000-square-metre extension to the terminal’s forecourt. This will enable check-in, security control and part of baggage arrival to move to the new area from 2032, freeing up space for the renovation or rebuild of the existing terminal.
