Zurich Airport Guide

Zurich airport, also known as Kloten airport, is the largest international airport in Switzerland. Located 13 kilometres north of Zurich city the airport saw passenger numbers of almost 30 million in 2017. 75% of these passengers were travelling from within Europe with many during the winter months travelling on to Switzerland’s ski resorts.

Construction first began on Zurich airport in 1946 with the first flights landing and taking off shortly after in 1948. There are now three terminals which see 72 airlines flying to 185 destinations daily. Zurich airport is the principal base for Swiss International Airlines who house many of their aeroplanes here and offer well-priced journeys to many international destinations. Other airlines using Zurich airport regularly include EasyJet, British Airways, Lufthansa, Eurowings & FlyBe.

The airport represents many of Switzerland’s best qualities in that it is clean, spacious and well-maintained. There are a good range of facilities, restaurants, bars and shops for a medium sized airport, and everything is laid out in an orderly manner. Unfortunately, as with most of Switzerland, it can be expensive.

Zurich city is one of the world’s biggest financial centres and has many museums and galleries. Zurich airport has direct access to great transport links and the city centre is just 20 minutes away by public transport. In fact, the transport system in Switzerland is one of the most effective in Europe – and can be accessed easily from the airport. Those travelling by road are also well catered for and there are some great Swiss ski resorts such as Villars-sur-Ollon, Verbier & Les Diablerets all easily within a 2 hour transfer from Zurich airport.

Snowcompare showed me deals and companies that I didn’t see in my initial Google searches. I was also very happy with the price/deal on offer. The website was easy to use and I received my booking confirmation promptly. I will use Snowcompare in future.

After agreeing for one price I was sent an email with a new lower price that I then selected. Then, I was charged the original quote with a second operator. The team was quick to resolve the issue. I would use the service again.
