In mid-July, we will be leaving from the Geneva Holiday Inn Express to the Geneva Airport in the mid-AM. The hotel has stopped its shuttle service. Instead they recommend we taking the Blandonnet Subway to the airport. I can't find any clear information about this subway on line. Does anyone know what this is? Is it part of the Geneva subway system or a tunnel to the airport? Any information would be much appreciated. Thank you!
Is this the Holiday Inn you are staying in?:
If so you can take the bus; there are 3 of them that stop at the bus stop near the Holiday Inn Express; it is free the hotel will give you a pass. There is no subway in Geneva. There are only trams and buses
2 minutes walking distance in direction of the airport
Estimated distance to the hotel: 0.31 MI/ 0.5 KM
Cost of Underground: free of charge for hotel guests
No personal info, but it appears the hotel staff should have the answer/directions for you
It looks to be a local transit station.
Check the map here.
And a station overview here.
Please do check that those are the official sources for transit info in Geneva.
I used to live in Geneva, and I know of no subways (as we Americans think of them) in Geneva, other than the underground train that goes between the airport and the main train station at Gare Cornavin.
Sometimes Europeans refer to underground pedestrian tunnels as subways, and that is probably what they mean, since the Holiday Express I looked up is at the corner of the airport. It looks like a 10 min. walk to the airport entrance.
Yes, "subway" refers to a bus stop in what we Americans would call a "Highway underpass". Photo.
Google maps shows it to be about 700 ft from the Holiday Inn Express walking away from the direction to the terminal.
Thank you, everyone for your responses. Now I know what a "subway" means in
Switzerland and I think I can find my way to my plane! Thanks again.
