A bi-national airport
Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg airport is a bi-national airport located on French soil, but managed by both France and Switzerland. This is a VERY IMPORTANT point, because your flight will leave from one or the other sector depending on the airline. For example, easyJet always operates from the Swiss sector.
From which sector does my flight leave?
This will be indicated on your ticket. If this is not the case, check the airport screens and look for the hall that corresponds to your flight. Some halls are in the French sector, others in the Swiss sector. Just follow the signs.
Is it possible to move from one sector to another in the airport?
Yes, on the second floor (British : first floor) of the terminal (departures). On arrival, you will have to choose an exit, either to the French sector or to the Swiss sector. If you made a mistake, go up to departures and correct it. This is an "open border".
When you rent your car, decide in which sector you want to pick up the vehicle. The price can change from one area to another. If you are going to Alsace or the Black Forest, it is best to pick up the car in the French sector to avoid wasting time and even paying the Swiss toll (about 40 Swiss francs).
