Needs updating but, the flow through immigration and customs was easy and speedy. Lots of shopping in terminal and foodland with several food options.

ZRH airport is agreeably small compared to London Heathrow, Chicago O'Hare, JFK, etc. Well connected with SBB Swiss Railways and plenty of Zurich buses and trams. Passport check and security above average compared with other European destinations. Only hassle is taking the people mover to Terminal E.

What for a bad image of Swiss hospitality! Serving only cheap products, even not Swiss wines, but low cost Spanish wines, very limited choice of food... One of the worst air lounge I have ever seen.

As a professional photographer I often have cause to travel with lots of valuable equipment... Some years ago I was shooting on a film set in Liverpool and my rather pricey (then new and shiny) Gitzo tripod got stolen from my car by some young urchin who later on turned up with it in the pub and sold it back...

Found it easy to work our way through the airport. Directions were ok, immigration and customs were the easiest in all our travels. Hassel free. Cabs available at door. Check cab fares on the net in advance. No hassels they were spot on.

Maybe my expectations were too high, but maybe the renovations are to blame... It took us about 20 minutes to find the car rental desks. the signs are more than confusing, elevators were only going down towards the train stations, etc. Air Conditioning in the large shopping area was inexistent, etc... When our flight got cancelled, they only had one... More

I have utilized this airport probably a dozen times; it is well organized and efficiently run. A nice introduction to the way the Swiss do business.

We walked outside to the trams, not what you need to the city - you need a train or a taxi. You need trams WITHIN Zurich. The ticket office was by far the easiest (even though I had purchased the correct ticket at the machine)... but the ride is short, so my First Class ticket was pretty much a waste... More

Zurich Airport is so disorganized! My class and I had a flight to London with EasyJet. We got passed security, and then went shopping in duty free for drinks so we didn't get dehydrated on the plane. Some of my friends also bought drinks for their family which you can only get in Switzerland. Then our plane was delayed by... More

Arrived early in the morning (6:00) and had a four hour wait for the connecting flight. Just enough time to have a wander through the shops and sit down for a coffee. If you have a flight departing from either gates D or E there are not many duty free shops there, they are all in gates A and B.... More
