I had to hear about my wife's unfortunate experience at this airport because I purchased the flights. What a pitiful mess. The incompetent fools in security at this airport chose to unpack her entire suitcase when she only had 45 minutes to rush from one flight to the next. She lost her computer charger and God knows what else. A... More

Wanted to buy Champagne Ruinart Blanc de Blanc, then I saw the price.......99 CHF!!!! You can get it at many wine merchants in CH at way below 70, I actually just bought a dozen at 54 CHF. Do you call it duty free? I call it a ripoff.

If you are traveling 2014 Dec, H&M and New Yorker has crazy sales. The clothes are great and stylish. Vogle shoes have new stocks and older ones are on sale. The light snow boots for young girls going at EURO30. Victoria's Secret and the other perfume outlets have outside tiny stalls where they sell the bottles with smaller quantities for... More

What a pleasure to come to this clean beautiful airport with perfect organization and transport links. Worth flying Swissair with Zurich as a hub.

Though we tried to spot the avionic albatross i.e. the Airbus 380 but failed having spent 6 hours in transit, this time not in the business lounges we made some observations that we should rather have avoided to have to: 1. exchange rate for CHF flagrantly unfavourable for the non-swiss 2. smoking areas almost racist i.e. uncomfortable with sadistic overtones...

Two very rude staff (as has been pointed out previously, though clearly no action taken by management) who first tried to refuse me entry, and then my guest. No apology offered when they realised their mistake. Not a great example of Swiss hospitality and a very poor reflection of an otherwise efficiently run airport. Until they sort out their personnel... More

Sign-posting excellent. Spacious. Transfer between terminals (especially E) is fast and easy. Air conditioning works. Staff are helpful. Lots of restaurants and shops. Duty free is not cheap.

Spend way to much time in airports. Found Zurich to be well laid out and efficient. Signage is clear. Plenty of places to sit and wait for your next flight.

Zurich is mostly what you would expect from a Swiss airport - clean, organized and mostly efficient. It is a little cold compared to some of the new terminals at Heathrow and Barcelona, but better than any airport in the US. A fine place to connect or to spend a few hours, and of course, to eat chocolate! TIP: If... More

Terrible,service was bad, dirty, food not available, rude staff. Worst lounge experience. I'm a star gold member and would expect more from Swiss, at a world class airport like Zurich
