  • Enough time?
    Oct 26, 2016
    Hi, We are arriving on swiss flight from Tel Aviv at 8:40 AM and departuring to Malaga on Swiss at 9:40 AM. Do we have to go thru passport control and if so, do you think we will we have enough time? Thanks!


    Yes, you will go through Schengen Entry passport control in Zurich. Yes, you have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    hello, my flight is from Skopje-Macedonia to New York with transfer in Zurich. I arrive at 12:00 in Zurich and my second flight from there is at 12:55 and says that 12:15 is latest check in. Should I tell to someone in charge or I will make it? My luggage will be checked in Skopje so I will pick it directly in New York right? But still I need to wait for the passport control in Zurich...!? Advice please:)


    You don't need to go through passport control in Zurich because you are not entering the Schengen Area. If both flights are on Swiss you will already be checked in for your flight to New York. All you have to do is go to your departure gate in Zurich. You have enough time if the flight from Skopje is on-time.

  • EWR > ZRH > CDG
    Sep 26, 2016
    We are flying from EWR (Newark, NJ, USA) to ZRH via United. We have a 55 minute layover between ZRH and our Swiss flight to CDG. Is this enough time? What all do we need to do once in ZRH before we can make it to our connecting flight to CDG? Should we only bring carry ons or could we check bags?


    Yes, that is just enough time. All you have to do in Zurich is go through Schengen passport control and to your departure gate. Checked bags won't change the process.

    Hello, I am flying from New York to Istanbul and I'm transferring in Zurich. Both flights are SWISS so do I need to re-check in in Zurich or pass through customs/passport control? Do I need a schengen visa for that?(turkish passport)


    All you have to do in Zurich is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Turkish citizens do not need a transit visa for such a transit.

    Hi all IFly members and specialists We have a flight from Geneva to Zurich which arrives at 12pm. The connecting flight at Zurich to Boston is at 13h00 but boarding time is 12h00. Both flights are with SWISS airlines on a single ticket. We have no idea about at which terminals the flight from Geneva lands in Zurich and from which terminal from Zurich the flight depart to Boston. Is it enough time to take the connecting flight. Please tell us whether we need to pass the security once again and passport control and the terminals. Await your valuable answers. Best regards IFlyer


    Zurich only has one Terminal. You will just go through Schengen Exit Passport Control on the way to your departure gate. You have enough time.


    Thank you very much ZAP for your reply. I appreciate it a lot

    Hi I have a flight in November with a 1 hour 25 minute connection. I am flying into Zurich on United and Flying to Cairo On Swiss. What is the procedure to get between flights? Am I able to check a back or should I do carry on?


    All you have to do in Zurich is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time. You can check a bag if you want.


    Thanks! but since the US and Cairo aren't Schengen don't I have to go through passport control? I'm American.


    Yes, that is correct - you won't technically even enter the Schengen Area.


  • Connection at ZRH
    Sep 13, 2016
    Hi All, My friends and I have booked our flights on SWISS from Miami to Dubai via Zurich in Business Class. We are scheduled to land in ZRH at 11AM and our DXB flight doesnt leave until 12:25PM giving us a 1:25 hours connection. I am aware that both our flights operate to and from Terminal E, do you guys think we will be able to make it?


    Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thanks a lot ZAP! Do I have to reclear security?


    And in the case, we do get delayed from MIA, how much time does this connection need to be made?


    You could probably make it in 30-40 minutes in a pinch.

We generally use Zurich for arrival and departure from Europe the last time in 2013 so know the airport but not the terminology for arrivals. ANyone help


    That should be enough time.

    Connection Time Question: In a few weeks, wife and I are arriving in ZUR at 10:30 a.m. on a Delta flight from US and hope to catch a 12:20 p.m. flight to BCN. Will the two hour window be enough time to make our connection or should we book a later flight to BCN 'to be sure'? We hope to only have carry on luggage but not sure if even our small bags (under 35 lbs) will be allowed on the Delta flight from the US. THANKS!


    With carry-ons only this would be just enough time. It would not be enough time with checked bags.


  • Will I have enough time for a transfer?
    Aug 21, 2016
    I am arriving into Zurich on Swiss Air at 8:25am from Amsterdam. I have a departing flight on American Airlines at 10:35am to NYC, so I will need to collect my luggage, check it in, and make it through security and passport control. Will that leave me enough time?


    That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Tight transfer in ZRH
    Aug 21, 2016
    I am flying MIA-ZRH-MUC with a 1 hr 10 min transfer in ZRH. Is that enough time to get through passport control? Also, do I have to claim my bag prior to passport control and then recheck it?


    Yes, that is enough time. You don't have to do anything with your bag in Zurich.


  • Is 50 minutes enough time for connection/changing planes at ZRH
    Aug 18, 2016
    Hi, I am flying in few weeks time form Mallorca to London via Zurich with two different airlines, but ony have 50 minutes in between to change planes. Will that be enogh and what sings or terminals I should be looking for? I wll have only hand luggage with me. Thank you


    If you have the boarding pass for your second flight follow signs to your departure gate - you will have to go through Schengen exit passport control on the way. If you don't have the second boarding pass you will have to go to that airline's transfer desk.


    Thank you for responce. Will 50 minutes be enough?


    It will be really difficult, especially if you can't get your second boarding pass before you leave Mallorca
