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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Hello, I have a connecting flight from Santiago de Compostela to JFK with stopover in Zurich 1 hour. The luggage is already going to destination, but it is difficult to get off one plane and climb another? Do you have to change terminals? Can you explain me?
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 !
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
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.
