WMO is located next to station Geneva-Sechèron (this is NOT the main station Cornavin). From Geneva Airport (GVA) it takes a couple of minutes by taxi/uber, or around half an hour by either bus or train to get to WMO or the center of Geneva. More information on public transport is available on https://www.gva.ch/en/desktopdefault.aspx/tabid-67/. In the baggage hall of Geneva Airport are machines where you can get a free 80-minute ticket for public transport to get to your hotel. Several hotels provide free public transport cards to use during your stay in Geneva, otherwise, a single ticket is CHF 3.
Geneva is also well reachable by train from several directions allowing flights to other airports as well or full train rides to Geneva.
