The trinational Euroairport Basel-Mulhouse (BSL) has a convenient size and offers short check-in times. A direct bus shuttle leaving every ten minutes takes you in 20 minutes to the city centre. The airport boasts more than 90 direct flights within Europe and beyond and is one of the hubs of the low cost carrier EasyJet. It is well connected to the large international hubs (Amsterdam, Brussels, Frankfurt, London, Munich, Paris, Vienna). However, a direct rail service (75 minutes travel time) leaving every hour connects Basel to Switzerland's main international airport in Zurich (ZRH).
