Hi, we have 45 minutes layover in Zurich, flying from Belgrade to Lisbon (Swiss and Lufthansa). Do we have to go through passport control and will this give us enough time to catch our flight to Lisbon? Also, what are the chances that our luggage gets lost? We are not staying in Lisbon either (less than 24h) , so it would be a real problem delivering the potentially lost luggage to us... Many thanks in advance.
Yes, you will have to go through Schengen entry passport control and security in Zurich. This is a very difficult connection.
Thanks for your reply. What about the luggage? What are the chances that it will make it to get to second plane? If not, could it be sent the same day? We arrive to Zurich at 1PM.
Your flight is the only one on Swiss from Zurich to Lisbon every day, so if your bags miss the flight they won't get to Lisbon until the next day.
Do you know how far away apart are the gates from Belgrade and Lisbon? I am aware that this can change but I guess that does not change much so even the info on the ones currently used would be helpful. Thank you.
Im traveling from boston to florence with a transfer flight in zurich, our layover is an 1:25 minutes is that enough time or should i be worried? Also is there signage telling me where to go? I am traveling with one other person and we have both never traveled alone like this before and i am afraid of getting lost or missing our flight.
Yes, that should be enough time. Just follow signs to your departure gate. You will go through Schengen Entry Passport Control on your way.
One more question, when I check in for my flight in Boston will they give me my bordering pass for my flight in Switzerland to Florence? If not where would I get that in Switzerland
Yes, they should issue both boarding passes in Boston.
I am an American student traveling on swiss air from San Francisco -> Zurich-> Florence. The layover from ZRH to FLR is 1 hour and 35 minutes from 3:40-5:15 pm (on a Saturday in January). Will this be enough time for me to pass through customs and get onto my next flight? I am worried!
Yes, that is enough time. You will go through passport control in Zurich.
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.
