The aim of the AERIA+ association is to promote and defend the presence of an efficient airport infrastructure supporting western Switzerland’s economy. The members of AERIA+ are companies, associations and other organizations relying on the quality of this airport infrastructure, as well as individuals.
The Lake Geneva area is one of the most important regions for the Swiss economy and the most dynamic regarding job creation. Excellent international connections through Geneva’s airport play a central role in supporting those activities. However, this infrastructure is going through a delicate period and is subject to multiple pressures:
The politicisation of the issues surrounding the airport is increasing.
Expectations are high regarding aviation’s contribution to Switzerland’s ambitious climate goals.
The Covid-19 pandemic has plunged commercial aviation into its longest crisis ever.
AERIA+ aims to:
Represent the needs and interests of western Switzerland’s economy in respect of the services provided by the regional airport infrastructure;
Act as an interface between the business community and the airport, respectively the authorities at the strategic and regulatory level;
Convince public opinion of the strategic importance of Geneva’s international airport for the economy;
Contribute to the competitiveness of western Switzerland’s airport infrastructure in accordance with the principles of sustainability;
Ensure that the destinations offered are aligned with the evolving needs of the economy.
The means and resources committed to this end are specified in the statutes.
AERIA+ promotes an informed and constructive dialogue. With its pragmatic perspective, it wants to help shape the future of airport infrastructure.
AERIA+ was established in November 2021. The members of AERIA+ are companies, associations and organisations that all benefit from the quality of this infrastructure, as well as individuals.
