The international airport Basel-Mulhouse (brand name “EuroAirport Basel Mulhouse Freiburg“) is something special: it dates back to 1946, is located in Saint-Louis, France and is operated by two states (France, Switzerland). It is 3,5 km afar from Basel, Switzerland and 20 km from Mulhouse, France. As it has also importance for the south-west of Germany the name of Freiburg im Breisgau was added in 1987.
The airport has three codes: BSL for Basel, MLH for Mulhouse and EAP for EuroAirport. It had separate entrance areas for Switzerland and France, only the terminals were shared. After Switzerland joing the Schengen Agreement this could be changed – only the separated roads to and from the airport remind on these days. If you want to leave the airport you have to decide first, whether you want to go to France or Switzerland; changing your mind after leaving the terminal is not possible.
