Hi, you will need to take the train from Zurich to Basel and then a bus from the main train station in Basel to the airport.

There is no baggage service past the Basel main station as far as I know and you would have to ship your bags the day before fairly early in the morning to be sure they are at the Basel station when you get there. Seems easier to keep them with you.

Don't worry about the airport being half French and half Swiss. Just go to the Easyjet counter on the Swiss side when you get of the bus.

You can get the timetables in English on the Swiss Rail website

www.sbb.ch/en

Put in Zurich and Basel SBB

Hope this helps.

It will be Bus no. 50 in front of the railway building. The shuttle journey is only 17 minutes.

The Easy Jet counters are on the right side of the building(if standing in front of it).

The airport is middle sized and very convenient. No problem at all.

Buy water and sandwiches in town. They are more expensive at the airport.

There are shops within the railway building.

And: Buy your railway ticketin Lucerne with destination EUROAIRPORT

not only "Basel SBB", This way your ticket covers also the shuttle!

Thanks, for that information, Maetzli. I had forgotten that it is possible to inclue the shuttle.
