Turnover rose by 9.8 per cent to SFr281.1 million, the airport announced on Tuesday.

"All financial indicators are in good health," said Robert Deillon, airport director. "This will enable the airport to continue its role as an economic motor for Geneva and the entire region."

François Longchamp, airport president, said one shouldn't sit back on these figures, "expectional though they are", saying a new terminal was needed to deal with future demands.

In 2007 Geneva airport served 10,806,653 passengers, a 9.5 per cent increase on 2006.
