Grenchen airfield has the status of an aerodrome with a not permanently manned customs office. This means that you are able to complete your customs formalities in Grenchen, i.e. you are able to land in Grenchen from abroad and even directly depart to locations abroad. Customs clearance is restricted to personal travel effects, private goods, sample collections and exhibition items under a Carnet ATA.
