The Western Switzerland Economic Association for an Efficient Airport Infrastructure (AERIA+) was established in November 2021.
The members of AERIA+ are companies – from small local family businesses to multinationals – associations and organisations that all benefit from the quality of this infrastructure, as well as individuals. They are active in the fields of import/export, international services, tourism, education, research, culture, etc.

To achieve its objectives, AERIA+ participates in the cantonal and federal political debates, carries out consultations among its members and takes a position on issues relevant to companies that depend on a good airport infrastructure.
The Association develops expertise on the impact of air transport on the economy to be communicated to interested target groups through conferences, thematic studies, medias and social networks. In this way, AERIA+ contributes to provide unbiased and relevant information to the public opinion.
The means and resources used for this purpose as well as the governance of the Association are specified in the statutes.
