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?
Thanks
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
YYZ - ZRH - FCO I have a connecting flight in Zurich to Rome. I am flying from Toronto. Land in Zurich at 6:25 am. Leave for Rome at 7:15 am. Is 50 minutes enough time to transfer?
Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Toronto is on-time and everything goes smoothly.
Hi ZAP, I plan to travel from New York to Shanghai with Swiss airline. There would be 2 hours 10 mins layover in Zurich. Do I need a transfer visa for this short period stop? I hold Chinese visa and now work in New York. Your response would be highly appreciated. Thank you!
Chinese citizens do not required to obtain a visa to transit the Schengen Area within the sterile area of an airport. Your valid US Visa also relieves you of needing a transit visa.
Hello, I am hoping to fly CX to ZRH and then LX to TLV roundtrip. I would have three hours between the flights, which are on separate tickets. Do I have enough time? I'm not certain if both flights would be in the E-gates, and where passport control is. Thanks so much for any help.
3 hours should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
is 40 minutes enough time for a flight from tel aviv to zurich and connection to dus germany?
That would be very very difficult.
