ZURICH AIRPORT REVIEWS:
The airport reviews matters a lot in increasing its popularity.
- Peter Tobe:
I am a frequent passenger at this airport from the last 10 years. The new security is excellent. Walking distances are more than ok. For me, this is the most convenient airport given its size and connections offered. I really would like to see some of these conveniences at other airports.
- Ron Kuhlmann:
The Swiss lounge is quite nice and the proximity to the airport shopping mall was very helpful as I had a few things to do while in transit. Boarding area E continues to strike me as cold and stark but the service and amenities at the airport are world class.
