I am arriving from USA on Swiss Air. I need to take the train to Basel. How do I get to the train station from the Terminal?
Can not find a map showing where I need to be for an Insight pickup. I believe it is near the Tourist Information Office, but could not find a map showing that either. Have spent ages looking. Can you point me to a map that will show this please?
I am traveling from Zurich to chicago on a 940AM flight, I have carry on luggage only and currently my train from Lugano arrives to ZRH at 813am. Will 1hr and 25min be enough time to clear security? Will I need to go through customs? Or should I chanve my train and arrive the night before?
You will have to go through Schengen Exit passport control and security. You should have just enough time.
Does anyone know if passport control at Zurich airport is open 24 hours or when it does open. Our return home flight to Toronto Canada leaves Zurich at 7:00 am and am wondering if 1:45 minutes is enough time to check-in and go through passport control. I'm concerned that it might not even open until 6:00 am and could be a problem. I'm not sure if that is a busy time of day for flying or not.
It will be open with sufficient time to get to your flight.
My sister and I are arriving from 2 different US cities at about the same time. Where do you suggest we meet? How can we see when each flight has landed? Is there a place to meet at baggage claim, or near to it? Thank you.
Yes, you could meet at the baggage claim.
We are traveling on Swiss Air from Boston to Napels via ZRH. Our layover is 70 min. Will we need to do anything other than pass through Schengen passport control?
No, that's it.
We are flying out of Miami with a 1.5 hr layover in Zurich. Connecting flight is with Austrian Airlines to Stuttgart. My husband is American, I am German. Will that be enough time to clear custom and get connecting flight? What do we have to do?
Are the two flights on the same reservation or two separate reservations? If it's one reservation you just have to go through Schengen Entry passport control and to your departure gate.
I'm flying delta from New York (us citizen)and I'll arrive in Zurich airport at 8:30 in the morning. I then have a flight from Zurich to Paris at 10:30 that morning. Will 2 hours be enough time? Should I be worried?
-we won't be travelling with luggage other than carry-one
If both flights are on the same reservation that is enough time.
The 2 flights are not under the same reservation, I booked them seperately.
Also, i realized my flight to Zurich lands at 8, not 8:30, so I have 2.5 hours between the two flights ,is it enough time?
Yes, that should be enough time, even on two separate reservations.
Will we need to go through security again or just through passport control?
I am travelling from Washington (Dulles airport) on United and need to make a connection in Zurich to Florence Italy on Swiis Air. Will I need to go through Security again, and will I need to go through a Pass Port check? Is there enough time with only 40 minutes?
Since you are coming from the US there is no additional security. You just have to go through passport control and to your departure gate. There's not much time to spare but your connection is possible.
We are travelling to Zurich to see a concert. It finishes at 20.40 next Sunday and our easyJet flight to London is at 21.30. The concert hall is about 10 minutes drive. Could you advise when is the latest time we could leave the concert? Thank you very much
If it's really only 10 minutes, you could leave as late as 20.20
Thank you very much ZAP. I observed the departure board last night for the same flight. The gate closed 1 hour before departure i.e. 20.30. My ticket clearly states that I need to be at the gate by 21.00. If it does close at 8.30 I have no chance. I wonder if the website was wrong? It would be great if we only missed 20 mins of the concert but I'm now uncertain. Thanks for responding quickly
