Back on 100 years of bold decisions in commemorative book

«Notre Aéroport, mon histoire»: 100 years of bold decisions shown through photos and video.

To mark its centenary anniversary, Genève Aéroport is publishing « 100 ans, Genève Aéroport ». This commemorative book looks back on 100 years of bold decisions through previously unseen images, archive videos and texts. Ten chapters look at the runways and the infrastructure, the stars and the pioneers in aviation, and the heads of state who have passed through the airport over the decades. The 160-page book will be on sale from 20 February in French-speaking bookshops and online.

In addition to the printed work, readers can immerse themselves in the history of the airport by scanning 17 images marked with the play symbol using Genève Aéroport’s GVApp, to discover the very first flights by the Dufaux brothers, the changes to the runway surface, the air show of 1955 and what happens to luggage from start to finish, as well as relive landmark events such as the snow of 1985, the airport’s 75th anniversary and even the arrival of the Pope.
