Switzerland's busiest airport

As the ideal Zurich airport transfer, we are experienced with the airport itself. Zurich Airport is the largest in the country, processing almost thirty million passengers a year, and is home to two terminals.

  • Terminal 1 is for flights leaving from Gate A and E, and has two floors serving as Arrivals and Check In 1. Mostly travelers from the Schengen area and domestic flights.
  • Terminal 2 is the larger of the two, and serves Gate B and D. It has three floors which are divided by Arrivals, Check in 2 (Row 5) and Check In 2 (Row 1-4). Terminal 2 is mostly for international travelers outside of the Schengen area.
