Basel Airport Guide to EuroAirport Basel Mulhouse Freiburg - BSL

Basel Airport Terminal

Basel Airport is the main international airport serving the cities of Basel (Switzerland), Mulhouse (France) and Freiburg (Germany).

Due to the outdate facilities of Sternenfeld airfield, in 1946 a provisional airport was inaugurated in the Swiss canton of Basel-Stadt.

From 1960 and during the following decades, the airport facilities were enlarged and extended. It wasn’t until 1987 that the EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg was introduced. 

After the developments done in the 00s, the terminals were enlarged into a new dock with a Y-shape, fusing the existing ones into a single passenger terminal with four levels and split in the Swiss and French sectors.
