  • enough time?
    Apr 7, 2017
    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.


  • Time from airport arrival to gate?

    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.


  • Do I need a visa for 2 hour layover in Zurich?

    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.


  • Connecting: Zurich to Stuttgart
    Mar 4, 2016
    My LX289 flight arrives in Zurich at 06:10 and connects on LX1176 to Stuttgart at 09:35. Please assist with procedure/directions/details to get connect smoothly.


    You have plenty of time. You just have to go through Schengen passport control, security, and to your departure gate.


  • 45 minute connection possible?
    Jan 11, 2016
    Hi...I was reading an old thread on this, but still couldn't decide if it's reasonable to fly from Milan to Zurich with just a 45 min layover to catch our flight to Montreal. (Both flights are SwissAir.) I get the impression from the forum there is passport control and short shuttle to terminal E which is for such flights? Your thoughts much appreciated. In all other ways, this appears to be an ideal flight.


    It's possible, but leaves no time to spare in case of a delay.
