Car Hire Basel Airport
When you hire a car at Basel Airport (Mulhouse-Basel-Freiburg Airport), you are in the unusual position of using an airport that is operated by both France and Switzerland. The airport is actually located in France, but the terminal has both a French sector and a Swiss sector, facilitating the operation of entry procedures for both countries.
About Basel Airport
Basel Airport is operated according to a 1949 international convention, which rules that the headquarters are based in Blotzheim, France, the airport is located entirely on French soil, and the airport has a Swiss customs area linked to Basel via a border road. Both Switzerland and France are granted access to the airport with no customs or other border restrictions.
