Geneva International has currently two passenger terminals - T1 & T2. While the  large 'T1' is the 'Main Terminal', housing a large part of the 'Swiss sector' and a small part of the 'French sector'. Small T2 is still in limited use during the Winter season.
The Main Terminal is closed midnight to 4am; while the French Sector closes between 11pm & 4:30am - passengers cannot stay in the terminal between those stated hours.
Railway & Bus Stations are across from the Terminal.

The 5-level Main Terminal 1 was recently renovated & expanded by 40 percent of its facilities, which included the Arrivals, Check-in and Departures levels. The top two levels are used for restaurants & lounges and terrace viewing.  Airline gates are located in Piers (Concourses) A, B, C,  D & F (Pier F serves French traffic only).
