  • is 45 minutes layover enough
    Nov 6, 2016
    My daughter is traveling from Toronto to Amman via Zurich and Vienna. She has 45 minutes layover in Zurich before departing to Vienna. Is this enough time. Her airline is Austrian, will she move to different terminal?


    Zurich only has one Terminal, but she will have to clear Schengen passport control to access the gate for her flight to Vienna.


    It is only a 1:30 hour layover in Vienna in her way to Amman why would she need a clearance?


    Since Zurich to Vienna is essentially a domestic flight since it is all inside the Schengen Area, she will have to go through passport control before that flight.


    My daughter has a Jordanian passport coming from Canada laying over 45 Min in Zurich then 1:30 in Austria then traveling to Amman. As a Jordanian that has a student permit in Canada, does she need an Airport Transit Visa (ATV) to layover in Zurich and Austria? Does the 45 min layover sufficient for a passport clearance? Appreciate an accurate reply as we might cancel the flight (which is nonrefundable based on your kind reply


    Dear IFLY team as I haven't received a clear response nor could reach a clear answer from reading the published EU visa policy. Also your earlier responses were not helpful, I had to unfortunately cancel the flight


  • ZRH Transit not on same ticket
    Jun 1, 2016
    I am flying into Zurich on American Airlines from New York and will be arriving at 7:50, will then be departing ZRH on Austrian Airlines to Vienna at 10:25. These reservations aren't on the same ticket, will this be enough time for transit?

    i am travelling via Zurich with Lufthansa airlines.. both flights... i have a layover of only 40mins.. is that enough? and do u think my checked in luggage will make it to the connecting flight too?


    Where are you flying into Zurich from?


    malta - zurich - copenhagen


    Then yes, that should be enough time as all flights are within the Schengen Area. Also, neither of those flights will be operated by Lufthansa.
