GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – The new website for Genève Aéroport is a visual treat, compared to the old one, but more importantly, it is being developed as a travel portal. The airport has hooked up with various companies so that you can use the site to order flights with ebooker, hotels, cars, parking and more. It’s a significant improvement over the old site.
Too bad for me that I live in Vaud, because residents of several other cantons and of neighbouring France can take advantage of a number of discounts, such as reduced rail travel, through the site.
Tip for French and Italian (Val d’Aosta) residents: you can get “up to CHF40” discount on the CHF40 Swiss annual road tax you need if you’re driving on the autoroute, by using a coupon from the new site, although how much off you get in real terms isn’t immediately clear, and the coupon is linked to a booked flight.
