The Basel airport is actually in France and it’s jointly run by France and Switzerland. It’s designed to service the three nearby cities: Basel, Switzerland; Mulhouse, France; and Freiburg, Germany. That explains its official name: EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg. And it explains why it has three airport codes: BSL, MLH, EAP. In Switzerland, you’ll get used to everything being listed in multiple languages.
By the way, it is possible to sometimes find cheaper prices on flights to Basel than its much bigger sister city, Zurich. Why? Some airlines service Basel that don’t service Zurich. If you are lucky to live in certain cities serviced by only those airlines, you could save on a flight to Switzerland by flying to Basel.
Ground transportation from the airport can get you conveniently to the train station in Basel (Bahnhof SBB) and the Saint-Louis railway station in France. See a timetable for these buses at the airport website. You may want to rent a car to get to Freiburg (43 miles away).
