Zurich Airport Review

by web-administrator (January, 2015)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) It was perfectly clean and quiet and stylish. There were several shopping options, though not as many as some other airports I've been to. The Starbucks was crazy expensive in my opinion. 7 for a cup of brewed coffee. But, maybe that's normal in Switzerland. Not many lounging style seats, but if you use your luggage as a prop, you could get a good nights rest.

Zurich Airport Review

Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) Indoor smoking halls should simply be outlawed! The whole departure gate (22 and surroundings; heaving to US on Swiss Air) smelled intensely of smoke. Disgusting and healthy.

Zurich Airport Review

Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) On arrival from Luxembourg I went to the information counter and found it unmanned so I went and had dinner before returning. My boarding card for the next flight was incomplete and I wanted clarification on the gate I should go to to catch my flight. On my return to information there was still no one there to assist me so I picked up the phone and was advised to wait as this flight would be announced 1 hour before the departure time and the Gate Number Would appear on the electronic board. I sat watching the board until it went black and then rushed around trying to find someone who could help. The personal at Gate E had left, the Police Station was closed and all Exits where locked. I ended up sleeping on the departure seating for the night. I thought I had missed the flight but when the lady in the Swiss Air office glanced at my ticket she immediately saw the 11:50 and told me that my flight was later that day. If you wanted to, you could say I have myself to blame but it appears that you do not use the 24 hour clock on your tickets / documents it is for this reason that I was confused, however, the crux of the matter is, if your information desk was manned for the duration of your airport operations this would have been pointed out to me immediately on arrival at the information desk and I could have taken the necessary action. In the interests of National Security, the traveling public and the airport facility The Police Station should be manned 24 hours per day. While you have flights taking of and landing you should provide customer service at your information counters. Besides all of this, I enjoyed my visit to Zurich but would war continued >>

Bad Experience - Duty Free Catch 22

by web-administrator (September, 2015)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review by Ron Magee) Worst airport on earth. I purchased duty free liquor in USA. Flight was Newark, NJ to Zurich, then connecting to Milan. Getting off the plane in Zurich we immediately had to go through security. I had the properly packaged liquor with me in a secure, tamper-evident sealed bag. I was told the packaging was not correct and the Zurich TSA ripped apart the stapled bag and confiscated the liquor. I am sure they have many parties with this illegitimate seizure of duty free properly packaged liquor. I will continue to go out of my way to discourage traveling to or through Zurich. The law effect 2014 is as follows internationally: The new TSA rules that allows duty-free liquor in carry-ons does come with limitations, though. Bottles must be purchased in duty-free shops overseas, and they must be placed in 'secure, tamper-evident bags' (also known as STEBs) that are subject to screening by the TSA. 'Technological advances may allow passengers to keep these liquids in their carry-on baggage,' the TSA said, 'provided they are presented in a STEB and are able to be screened and cleared by Transportation Security Officers at the checkpoint.'

Sleeping in Zurich Terminal A/B

(Guest Review) My flight from Madrid landed in Zurich at 10pm, and I was scheduled to depart for Helsinki the next morning at 6am. Instead of trying to find a hotel (which are quite expensive in the area) and worrying about whether or not I'd be able to make through security for my early-morning flight I decided to sleep at the Zurich airport. Since my bags were being checked through to my final destination (Helsinki) I didn't leave the post-security boarding area of Terminal A/B. The stores had pretty much all closed by the time my flight landed. I talked to the agents at the Transfer desk and they said lots of people sleep at the terminal. I found a spot that was a little bright and started to settle in. A security guard came by and asked if I had a boarding pass for an ongoing flight, and I did and showed him. I appreciate that they check on that kind of thing, made me feel safe. I wasn't the only person trying to catch a few zzzs in the terminal because I saw a few other people, but it wasn't super busy either. The chairs aren't super comfortable to lay on, but if I used my backpack as a pillow it wasn't too bad. I'd sleep for an hour, then wake up. I did try finding some more comfortable chairs but the only really comfortable chairs were at a coffee shop, which had really loud music playing. Staff for the stores/restaurants came in to setup around 530am, so if started getting busy then. You probably won't get much sleep after that. This wasn't the best sleep I ever had, but it's sleeping at an airport, and I did manage to get a few hours of sleep. It felt very safe in the boarding area, and the airport itself was clean. I found going to the benches by continued >>
