The reduced fares are specially marked with a white triangle and, depending on the chosen fare, allow you to change or cancel your flight with complete ease. All reductions depend on the type of fare, route and availability. They are valid on the entire SWISS route network for flights to Switzerland (flight numbers LX1 – 2999), including flights that are operated by our partner airlines under an LX flight number (LX 8000 – 8999). Thanks to the new fare options, you now have even more choice on SWISS European flights, and only pay for what you really need.
The special fares can be booked for the travel period 14 days before to 14 days after the event, and travellers can book their flights starting 11 months prior to the event, as of mid-May 2016.

Travel FREE on public transport during your stay in Geneva
Simply pick up a ticket for public transport from the machine located in the baggage collection area of Geneva airport on the ‘Arrivals’ level.
This Unireso ticket (the Geneva public transport network), offered by Geneva International Airport, entitles you to use public transport in Geneva free for a period of 80 minutes, allowing visitors to reach their accommodation or the exhibition free of charge.
Geneva Transport Card
Enjoy your stay in Geneva with the Geneva Transport Card All visitors staying at a hotel, youth hostel or even on a campsite in the greater Geneva area can benefit from the Geneva Transport Card, at no additional cost.
When checking in at the hotel the visitor requests the card from the hotel or other accommodation. This personal and non-transferable card is then issued, enabling its holder to the use of the entire public transportation network without restriction (bus, train and boat), and is valid for the entire duration of stay including the day of departure.
An extremely practical item for the visitor and a small gesture towards the environment in this city which prides itself on its ‘green’ heritage.
Further information on the Geneva public transport network, including routes and timetables, can be obtained from: www.unireso.ch
Direct bus link to airport
The no. 5 bus, which stops directly outside the exhibition halls at GENEVA PALEXPO, has extended its route to link the exhibition centre directly to the airport.
Every alternate bus now continues its journey right to the airport, thus bringing INDEX™17 visitors directly from the airport to the event, in a quick 3 minute journey. Equally, visitors wishing to depart directly from the exhibition have a convenient bus stop linking them directly with the airport.
Buses run every ten minutes with every other bus going to the airport. A personalised timetable can be compiled and downloaded from the TPG (Transports Publics Genevois) website: www.tpg.ch

Cloakroom / Left luggage facilities
INDEX™17 visitors with luggage may leave it, as well as coats and other items, in the manned cloakroom facility situated on the ground floor near the Congress Centre, for a small fee.
Public transport night-time service
If you have to catch a plane in the early morning, before public transport services start, you can use a collective taxi service (Taxibus) to get to the Airport for a minimal fee.
