  • 50 minutes to connect from Nice going to Boston?
    Aug 9, 2016
    My mother and my 6-year-old daughter are flying Swiss from Nice and have 50 minutes to connect to their Boston Swiss flight. Will they have to go through security or just passport control? Should I tell them to run? :-)


    They just have to go through Schengen exit passport control. They should have enough time, but moving quickly never hurts.


    Thanks, ZAP!


  • Time to go through security

    Hi! We have an 11 h layover in Zurich before continuing to Vancouver YVR. We plan to visit the city of Zurich in this time and I am wondering how much time we should plan to get back in time for boarding. Our flight (LX8010) departs at 17:15 (Sept. 6) and our luggage will likely be checked through so we'll probably just have to go through security and then to the right gate. How much time would you guys plan for that to be on the safe side and at the same time get the most out of our time in Zurich? Thanks!


    Get back by at least 13:15.


  • Connection Anxiety
    Aug 3, 2016
    We are flying Swiss Air (codeshare with Air Canada) on August 9th from Berlin to Montreal Arrival in Zurich from Berlin on AC 6821 at 1220 Departing Zurich to Montreal on AC 6797 at 1300 - a 40 minute window if the flight is on schedule! This flight was booked in Canada by a professional travel agent. The anxiety provoked by this short connection is immeasureable. We are in our 60's and want a safe, enjoyable trip home.


    It's not impossible, Zurich is a relatively small airport by European hub airport standards.

    Hello, I'm going to fly from Prague to Zurich (Swiss Int. Airlines 1487) and from Zurich to Geneva (Swiss Int. Airlines 2810). I have 1 hour 40 mins between the flights. The flight information I have at the moment doesn't contain any Zurich buildings/terminals numbers I should use for transit. Do I have enough time, please? Thank you so much.


    Both flights will be in the Schengen wing so they should be close together. You have plenty of time.


    Thank you, makes me feel much better.

    Hello! I will be flying from Sofia to Zurich and from Z├╝rich to Tampa. All With Swissair with an hour and 45 minutes in between flights. Could somebody tell me if I'd be arriving and departing from same terminal? do I need to change terminals? If so- how do I go about it? Would I be going through security again? I'm an American citizen. thank you so much!


    Zurich really only has one Terminal. You do not have to go through security again. You will just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thank you! I was worried because online it said that it may be either Terminal D or E. And they seemed far away from each other.


    Yeah, for some reasons Zurich calls what everyone else in the world would call a concourse "terminals". Zurich is actually one of the smallest hub airports in Europe, so nothing takes too long there.


    Thank you! Do you know if I'd be going through security?

    Wrote my times wrong.....arrive Zurich at 6:20 a.m. and depart at 7:10 a.m. both flights are Swiss Air...will I be in the same terminal and this "short" time will work out....I hope!!!!


    Where are you flying from and to?


    Flying in from New Delhi, India and then flying out to Barcelona


    That should be just enough time, but it leaves very little to spare.

    Traveling from Boston to Zurich on 8/21/16 with a one hour layover connecting to Naples Italy will this be enough time


    Yes, that should be enough time as long as both tickets are on the same reservation.


    Thank you

  • 40 min layover
    Jun 24, 2016
    I have a 40 minute layover with a transfer from Swiss to Air Canada. Is this be enough time? Would it be better if we upgraded to the seats close to business class?


    It will be difficult either way.

    Next week my older sister will fly from ZAG to ZRH (OU460), ZRH to IAD (UA53) and from IAD to OKC (UA6271). For six months coming back from OKC to DEN (UA1769), DEN to FRA (LH447) and from FRA to ZAG (LH1414). One eTicket was issued with UA and one reservation applies to all flights. Because she has difficulty walking I'd like to help her to prepare travel itinerary. Questions: I. When and where does she get boarding passes for connecting flights? Maybe in ZAG for UA53, in OKC for LH447 and LH1414? II. What about immigration and custom in IAD? Could you please explain procedure step by step? Which forms she has to fill out before landing in the US? III. Which are arrival and departure gates for connecting airports (ZRH, IAD, DEN and FRA)? I really appreciate any help you can provide


    She will be issued all boarding passes at her first airport going bothw ays. At IAD she will go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, re-check her bags at the re-check desk, and go through security and to her departure gate. In IAD she will arrive and depart from the C/D gates. In Denver, on her return she just has to go from her arrival gate in the B gates to her departure gate in the A gates.

    Flying Warsaw zurich arriving at 1635 and departing to Newark at 1720. I have noticed in the past 2 weeks that the Warsaw flight is almost every day 20 or more minutes late. I have asked Swiss to rebook me on an earlier flight, but their comment is that it should work, and if not, then we'll see. It seems they prefer to Rik having me stay overnight in Zurich instead of having me on an earlier flight. Is there any way to get around this strange behaviour?
