Appreciate if could help us to book the pet handling center at Zurich airport
I will be flying from Rome to Zurich and then to Newark, NJ. I have a 12 hour layover. Are 'nap' rooms available for rent at the airport? If not, are airport restaurant and shops open after 10pm or does everything close?
Hi, I'm flying from Copenhagen and have a 40 min layover before my flight to Boston. Will I have enough time to make my flight? I'll only have a carryon bag

That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

Yes, I think that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.
My daughter is traveling from Toronto to Amman via Zurich and Vienna. She has 45 minutes layover in Zurich before departing to Vienna. Is this enough time. Her airline is Austrian, will she move to different terminal?
Zurich only has one Terminal, but she will have to clear Schengen passport control to access the gate for her flight to Vienna.
It is only a 1:30 hour layover in Vienna in her way to Amman why would she need a clearance?
Since Zurich to Vienna is essentially a domestic flight since it is all inside the Schengen Area, she will have to go through passport control before that flight.
Dear IFLY team as I haven't received a clear response nor could reach a clear answer from reading the published EU visa policy. Also your earlier responses were not helpful, I had to unfortunately cancel the flight
I am flying into Zurich on American Airlines from New York and will be arriving at 7:50, will then be departing ZRH on Austrian Airlines to Vienna at 10:25. These reservations aren't on the same ticket, will this be enough time for transit?
i am travelling via Zurich with Lufthansa airlines.. both flights... i have a layover of only 40mins.. is that enough? and do u think my checked in luggage will make it to the connecting flight too?
Where are you flying into Zurich from?
malta - zurich - copenhagen
Then yes, that should be enough time as all flights are within the Schengen Area. Also, neither of those flights will be operated by Lufthansa.
