More Information

Was doing an approach at geneva airport LSGG and airport was visible through the fog even at high altitude

This is perfectly normal. Airport beacons and runway lights are supposed to be viewable for miles all around, and to be seen for aircraft to safely approach and land on. Geneva’s runway lights are HIRL, meaning they are High Intensity Runway Lights. These are by far the most viewable runway lights in terms of distance.
