The 2003 G8 meeting is scheduled for June 1-3 in the resort of Evian, France on Lake Geneva, and some 12,000 security personnel, half from France, half from Switzerland, are planning to seal off the area and keep protesters several miles away from the resort. The Swiss government has announced that it will ban aircraft within a 10-kilometer radius of Evian from May 29 to June 5, and all flights within a 60-kilometer radius will be restricted and subject to government approval. Geneva International Airport and other airports in the area will remain open during the summit, but will reduce operations. Travel in and around Geneva may be inconvenient because protesters are planning to demonstrate near Geneva and hope to disrupt the movement of delegates, journalists and summit staff housed in Geneva and Lausanne.
