The Pope is arriving in Geneva on that day and will hold a Mass at the Palexpo that afternoon. 41,000 are expected to attend.

The airport says the carparks will be closed to anyone who doesn’t have a plane ticket.

If you are flying that day, the advice is to arrive at the airport with at least three hours to spare. Print your boarding pass before you arrive and check-in bags online. And take public transport. Extra trains and buses will be running that day.

If you’re not flying and are not attending the Mass, then you should avoid the area around the airport and Palexpo completely.

The Mass will end at 7pm.

The airport also points out there is absolutely no chance of catching a glimpse of the Pope in the terminal.
