Meeting friends at Zurich airport. They fly in on Icelandic air, we arrive on Lufthansa. We will be taking train into Zurich. Where is the best place to meet.
We are arriving from Chicago on Swissair and transferring to HELVETIC AIRWAYS. What is the distance between terminals?
Scheduled arrival on Delta Airlines at 8:10 a.m., will I likely have enough time to claim luggage, clear customs, buy train ticket, and catch the 10:47 a.m. Train departing for Como, Italy? Thanks in advance for any thoughts or suggestions.
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?
Thanks.
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.
