  • Will I have enough time to make my ZRH connections?
    Mar 24, 2017
    We will fly from Athens to ZRH and connect ZRH to final destination in Boston -- both flights on Swiss Air LX. We arrive at 15h55 and depart at 17h30 (only 1 hour + 35 minutes). [1] Do we have to go through customs; and [2] Will this be enough time for our connection? THANKS so much for your help!


    You will go through Schengen Exit passport control, which is a very brief process, in Zurich. You have enough time.


  • Swiss Air Connection
    Mar 20, 2017
    We will be arriving at ZRH on the 18th of May at 4:35pm via Swiss Air (coming in from FCO)... We are connecting to a flight from ZRH to EWR at 5:20 pm also via Swiss Air. I have no terminal information for Zurich...Will there be an issue making this connection... We are 7 people (2 are Seniors) all of us with checked luggage.


    Zurich really only has one terminal. This is a difficult connection but should be possible if the flight from Rome is on-time.

    we will be flying swissair from Montreal to Beijing with a 7 hour layover in Zurich. How do I find out which gate we arrive at and which we leave from. I'm trying to figure out where we go to rest during those seven hours as we'll be arriving at the crack of dawn, but it will only be the night before to us. Can you answer that for me please?


    You won't know your gates until the day of your flight. The Zurich airport is fairly comfortable.


  • Connection Air Canada to Austrian Airlines
    Mar 11, 2017
    I am flying from Canada to Russia connecting through both ZRH, and VIE on a single ticket. Will I need to deal with immigration at either ZRH, or VIE?


    Yes, you will go through Schengen Entry passport control in Zurich since your flight to Vienna is within Schengen. You will then go through Schengen Exit passport control in Vienna to get to your flight to Russia.

    Hi, would like to check if I will have enough time to do as I will only have 55minutes for transfer from ZRH-MAN. 2) do I have to go through passport control & will that take a Long time? 3)do I have to take a train for transit From terminal to terminal?


    Since you are not entering the Schengen Area you will not have to go through passport control. Zurich really only has one terminal.


  • Transiting Zurich
    Mar 4, 2017
    Hi, If I will be landing from Moscow into Zurich at 11.40am with a connecting flight to San Francisco, departing at 1.10pm. Is there enough time? It is on the same booking and I have 2 checked in luggage. - Do I need to clear customs? If so, do I need to do so once or twice? - Which terminal would the flight likely be landing and departing from Thanks!


    You just have to go through security and to your departure gate. Zurich really only has one terminal. You have enough time.


  • Connection Air France to American
    Mar 4, 2017
    I have an outbound flight American Airlines from ZRH to JFK that is scheduled to leave from E gates at 10:15am on a Sunday. If my Air France flight is scheduled to land at Terminal 2 at 8:50am, will I have enough time to make the flight to New York?


    Is it two separate reservations? Do you have checked bags?


    It is two separate ticket reservations but I won't be checking any luggage.


    With no checked bags this is possible if you check in online for your Air France flight but leaves no time to spare.

Thanks!


    Yes, that is enough time.

  • walking distance
    Feb 26, 2017
    want to know walking distance between terminal arrival 2 to terminal E duration time is 1hour and 40 minutes, never land in ZRH airport, afraid of missing the connecting flight to Boston.Thanks for your help! Shelley


    ZRH only has one terminal. What they call "terminals" are really concourses. You have enough time if both flights are on the same reservation.


    Yes, both flights are on the same reservation 'Swiss Air'. You have put our minds at ease.Thank you for your help!

    I have a connecting flight in Zurich to Mumbai, I am flying from Toronto on Air Canada and from Zurich to Mumbai on Swiss Air. What is the minimum connecting time required to connect and will 1:55 min be sufficient time to connect.


    Yes, that is enough time. If both flights are on the same reservation all you have to do in Zurich is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thank you


    Bosnia citizen traveling from Los Angeles to Belgrade ( Serbia) with 2 hrs layover in Zurich. Am I going through passport control and is 2 hrs enough for this connection.... thank you !


  • Connecting Time

    We are flying from Singapore to Paris via Swiss Air and a layover in Zurich. We have 45 mins to transfer? Will this be enough time? Do we have to go thru passport control? And I guess we will not re-check our luggages again since it is the same airline


  • Manchester - Zurich - Belgrade
    Feb 1, 2017
    Hello, I am flying this Saturday from Manchester to Belgrade, transferring in Zurich. I will have 40 minutes to make the transfer. Is that enough? Will I need to go through a passport check again? I am travelling with an EU passport. Thank you!


    Yes, that should be just enough time. Since you are not entering the Schengen Area you will not go through passport control.


    Thank you for your reply. What about the return journey? I am flying from Belgrade to Manchester, bit this time through Munich. Passport check...?! :/


    Again, not entering the Schengen Area, so no passport controls. Munich is smaller, so easier than Frankfurt.


    Sorry, Munich is about the same size as Zurich, so very similar.


  • Is 1 Hour a long enough connection time for BOS-ZRH-LIS
    Jan 31, 2017
    We are flying from Boston to Lisbon with a connection in Zurich. We would only have one hour to make this connection in Zurich and I would like to know if this is enough time.


    That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • LAX to CDG Via Zurich Swiss Air-Do you retrieve bags in Zurich
    Jan 29, 2017
    US Citizen Flying Swiss Air LAX to Charles De Gaulle but laying over in Zurich. We are planning on remaining in Zurich and not continuing to CDG. If we check our bags, will we have to retrieve them anyway before passport control in Zurich, then re-check, so we can do so and just leave? Or are the bags checked through to CDG. Can't seem to get a for sure answer from United who we booked through or Swiss Air. We will carry on otherwise but are traveling with two toddlers so would prefer to check.


    No, you won't. You will have to only bring carry-ons if you're planning on not going onwards to Paris.


    Thank you
