Basel Mulhouse-Freiburg EuroAirport in a nutshell

David Eiselt updated 30. 11. 2023

Euro Airport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg is located in France, close to the borders with Germany and Switzerland. The nearest city is Basel, 5 kilometres away, which is why the airport is better known by this name.

The French city of Mulhouse is 20 km from the terminal and Freiburg, Germany is over 46 km away.

The airport's operations are half-managed by Switzerland and France.

The airport is medium sized and operates many direct flights to all of Europe. The largest percentage of flights are operated by easyJet, which has one of its largest bases in Basel.

Due to its special status, the airport uses 3 IATA codes, which are displayed for example when searching for flights:

  • BSL - the most used, officially for the Swiss part
  • MLH - for the French part
  • EAP - neutral code

Especially when searching for French domestic flights, you may find lower flight prices when entering the code "MLH" instead of "BSL".
