Schutz Swissair building sold

The Centre Swissair –  next to Geneva Airport – has been sold to the airport.

Swissair, Switzerland’s former flag carrying airline, collapsed with massive debts in 2001.

An airport spokesman says the purchase is a good deal for the airport as it needs more space for administrative staff.

The airport already rents some space in the building.

IATA are based in a building next door - but that is separately owned by the international organisation.
