Could someone help me here?

Do these two cities share a common airport? If so, is it in Switzerland or France? If not, how far apart are the two airports.

The airport is shared between the Swiss city Basel and the French city Mulhouse. From this the name Basel/Mulhouse. The airport is actualle situated in France but not far from the Swiss border.

You have the same situation in Geneva. However the airport here lies partly on the border and is situated in both countries - as is the rest of the city.

The airport is also shared by a German City although they don't have a direct road to the airport ( except going via France or Switzerland.
I think it is Freiburg but I'm not sure. The name of the city is also on the busses that bring you to the plane.

The France-Swiss border as well as the France - Germany and Germany - Swiss borders are only a few km away.

Like already posted by TR, the airport is located in France but there is a direct road from Basel ( Switzerland ) to the airport.
If you arrive you can choose that you enter France or Switzerland ( two different customs ) and there are two seperate check-in halls.

That was the situation 2-3 years ago, but then there was a maquette of a new building. I don't know that it is already build and how it works there. I would think it is the same as back then.

Basel is also the base of Cross Air

Yes, BelugaBoy is right. The airport is called EuroAirport (Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg) and it has still two terminals. The airport lies on French territory but is closer to Basel (Switzerland) than to Mulhouse (France).
From Basel you have a direct road to the airport and you don't have to go through French customs.
For more information please visit www.euroairport.com

Hope this helps,

The Euroairport has the particularity of having 3 different GDS codes :

BSL for Basel
MLH for Mulhouse
EAP which is used by some airlines.

A new terminal has just been opened, and the franco-swiss management team has already planned to add a rail station inside the airport.
