The "EuroAirport" is a relatively small airport located just across the Swiss border in France. It's the shared airport of the cities of Basel (Switzerland), Mulhouse (France) and Freiburg (Germany). Most flights originate from in and around Europe. Most intercontinental flights arrive at Zurich airport.
The entire airport, including the arrival hall and departure hall, are split into Swiss and French sections.
