Hi Emil, and welcome to MySwissAlps!
Most people seem to choose an airport based on airfare costs, so you could compare what airfares are available from your country to the various international airports in Switzerland.
You can use the Swiss Timetable to see how long it will take from each airport. It will give you the fastest routes by default.
Travel times from Zürich or Basel airports via the fastest routes are around 3.25 hours. From Bern it is a bit over 2 hours, and from Geneva around 4 hours.
The standard route from Geneva will take you past the Lavaux terraced vineyards, and along Lac Léman (Lake Geneva), which is very scenic.
The standard routes from Zürich, Basel and Bern will take you through the Lötschberg-Basistunnel, missing the beautiful scenery between Spiez and Brig. If you would like to take the scenic route instead of going through the long tunnel, put "via Kandersteg" into the timetable search form. The scenic route will take about an hour longer, as the train has to negotiate the mountains rather than running beneath them.
