Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg Airport, also known as EuroAirport, it is the first and only example of a trinational airport in the world.
Indeed, it was built by Switzerland on French territory in the municipality of St. Louis and serves the city of Basel in Switzerland, the city of Mulhouse in France and Friborg in Germany.
The airport is divided into two independent complexes with its own customs centers: one for France and another for Switzerland. Right in the center of the two structures is the border between the two states.
The 2015 numbers explain the incredible success of the Euro airport; more than 7 million passengers, around 100 daily flights and over 30 destinations. A real gateway to the heart of Western Europe; the crossroads to economically flourishing regions such as Alsace, North-West Switzerland and Baden-Württemberg.
The main air carriers land and take off from this airport: Air France, Air Berlin, British Airways, Lufthansa, easyjet, TUIfly, just to name a few. Every day, one or more flights are guaranteed for the main European destinations such as Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London-Heathrow, Munich, Paris o Vienna.
