Getting to Geneva

By plane
Geneva Cointrin International Airport (IATA: GVA) is the closest major airport, and serves direct flights from most major European hubs, as well as a few cities in Canada and the United States, North Africa, and the Middle East.

Check Kayak or Expedia for online booking.

By train
Geneva's main train station is Gare Cornavin, in the city center.

Note: CODEPINK is organizing a bus ride for people who will be going from Geneva to Montreux for the day of action on January 22nd. If you wish to take the train instead, check the SBB site for timetable info.
