  • Layover time used to travel in the city?
    Jul 6, 2015
    Hello! A friend and I are traveling from Thessoloniki, Greece to Zurich. We will have a five and a half layover in Zurich before boarding a flight back to the US. My question is: will we have enough time to get through customs and out into Zurich for some very light sight seeing? Our plan is to spend about an hour or two outside of the airport and then come back in for our flight back. Is this doable?


  • handling luggage by transfers when multiple tickets bought
    Jun 26, 2015
    I booked two tickets for my trip from New York to Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina: 1. New York, JFK to Zurich with Swiss Air 2. Zurich to Banja Luka, Bosnia with BH Airlines I have a layover of 3hours and 20 minutes in Zurich between flights if there are no delays. Because I bought two separate tickets, my questions are: Do I have to pick up my luggage in Zurich and recheck it in with another airline - and go through all the controls (customs, immigration, everything) and get the second boarding pass? If I have to do this, will I have enough time to catch my connecting flight(I know it sounds like plenty of time, but sometimes there are delays on these flights that could affect the transfer). Thank you!


    Yes, you will have to claim your luggage in Zurich and re-check it with BH Airlines. You will also have to go through Schengen passport control there to do so. 3 hrs 20 mins should be enough time.

    We are flying from Chicago to ZRH than on to Barcelona. We only have 50 mins (if we arrive on time) to get from our flight to the next one. What will we have to do and will we have enough time? Will our luggage have enough time to get from one plane to the other? Where can we find out which terminal we are coming in on and going out of? Thank you for your assistance
