  • connection time with changing flights
    Feb 26, 2017
    flying to ZRH from Shanghai with arrival time at 03:50pm, connect a different flight to Boston with departure at 05:30pm, layover time is one hour and 40 minutes. both reservations are by Swiss Air.Do we have enough time to board the flight to Boston and will our check-in luggage be able to transfer to the flight to Boston? Thanks!


    Yes, that is enough time.


    Thank you very much for the reply!


  • walking distance

    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


  • 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


  • Boston to Croatia with a layover in Zurich
    Jan 27, 2017
    Hi! I'm flying to Croatia from Boston and have a 45 min layover in Zurich. Same reservation through Swiss. Will I have to go through passport control? Will I have to re-check in my luggage at the airport? Any security? Different Terminal? WILL I MAKE IT!? Thanks!


    No, you will not have to go through passport control or do anything with your luggage and Zurich only really has one Terminal. you have enough time.


  • 1:25 from US to Italy
    Jan 27, 2017
    Is 1hour 25 min enough for a connection for coming in on United from US and departing on Swiss to Italy? Do we have to pick up luggage and drop again or just go through immigration?


    you just go through Schengen entry passport control. You should have enough time.


    Great, so no luggage pick u and drop off?


  • Atl to Zurich to Split,Croatia - separate reservations
    Jan 13, 2017
    Arriving into Zurich on Delta, Departing to Split on Croatia Airline. Separate reservations. What is the minimum about of time I should plan for to transfer ? What is the transfer procedure?


    You will have to go through Schengen entry passport control, claim your bags, then re-check them with Croatian, then go through security and Schengen exit passport control and to your departure gate. I would want 3 hours.


  • 3 Hours enough to get luggage and make next flight?
    Jan 12, 2017
    I would be coming in with my family on Edelweiss Air from Larnaca to Zurich arriving 2:25pm, getting luggage and then trying to make a Swiss flight departing at 5:30. Is this enough time? Thanks!


    That should be enough time if the first flight is on-time.




  • 2 hrs and 30 mins connecting (different airline reservations)
    Jan 13, 2017
    Hi there! I will be travelling from HK to Zurich via Cathay Pacific and arrive Zurich Airport at 06:30am. I will then need to take flight to Vienna via Swiss/Austria airline at 09:00am. Since it is by different airline reservations, may i know if it is enough time for me? Also, I'm worried about the luggage transfer? How is it be done on our case? Do I need to do all immigrations, collect luaggage and go back to immigrations to do the check-in again? Thanks!


    That should be enough time. You will go through Immigration, claim your bags, then re-check your bags and go through security. You do not go through immigration again because Switzerland and Austria are both in the Schengen Area, so the flight from Zurich to Vienna is like a domestic flight.


    Thanks! I just checked with the airline that my baggage can be checked-through all the way based on the interline agreement between Cathay Pacific and Swiss/Austria airline. In that case, do you know if it is possible for me to get my boarding pass in the transfer area without going out to the check-in counter? Thanks!


  • Passport/security
    Dec 22, 2016
    I am flying from Birmingham UK to Singapore with Swiss and have a stopover of 2hours at Zurich. Will I have to do passport control and security again?


    No, since you are not entering the schengen area you just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.


    Many thanks


    Dec 22, 2016


    Yes, that should be just enough time if the flight from Milan is on-time. You will have to go through Schengen Exit passport control in Zurich.


  • Connection in 40 minutes possible?
    Dec 19, 2016
    I'm arriving on Swiss from London on Christmas Day and have only a 40 minute transfer time for the Swiss Newark flight. Can it be done? Do I need to change terminal/how long will the transfer take?


    You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. It's possible but everything has to go perfectly.
