Zürich Airport

Where is Zürich Airport?  

Known as an economic centre, Zurich is also a wonderfully efficient and clean historic city, prettily set on a lake. To say Zurich is a transportation hub would be an understatement: one of the city's 16 train stations, Zürich's Hauptbahnhof, is the world's busiest with 2915 trains every day!

Consistently ranked as having one of the highest standards of living worldwide, in recent years cosmopolitan Zurich has become even more attractive. With more than 1500 restaurants, 500 bars and 80 clubs (on weekends), not to mention 50 museums, 100 galleries, and a mix of opera, ballet, concerts, theatre and cinemas, Zurich is one vibrant city.

Zurich International Airport (IATA: ZRH, ICAO: LSZH), also known as Zurich Kloten Airport, Kloten Airport, or simply Zurich Airport, is located north of Zurich city centre and partially set in five municipalities (Kloten, Rümlang, Oberglatt, Winkel and Opfikon), all in the canton of Zurich, Switzerland. Interestingly, Zurich Airport has a wildlife reserve on the airport grounds covering almost 100 acres.

In 2012, Zurich Airport served 24,802,400 passengers, making it Switzerland's largest international airport, and the 15th busiest airport in Europe.

Principal hub of Swiss International Air Lines, Zurich Airport is also served by Air Berlin, Air France, American Airlines, Austrian Airlines, British Airways, Delta, eastJet, KLM, Lufthansa, Niki and United Airlines, to name just a few.

The 10 busiest routes served from Zurich are London, Vienna, Berlin, Paris, Düsseldorf, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Hamburg, New York and Barcelona.

Your best bet for a Zurich Airport transfer is the train or tram, depending on your final destination (details on all options are included in this guide).

Or, to truly arrive stress free, treat yourself to a private Zurich Airport transfer from IHateTaxis.
