Expanded leisure activities at Zurich Airport

In parallel with the summer timetable, the range of leisure activities for airport visitors is being expanded further. Good Friday, 29 March 2013, sees the switch to the summer timetable.

Every 30 minutes on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays and on all public holidays from midday onwards, tours of the airport are offered for families and individuals without prior registration. The guided bus tour, which lasts 75 minutes, takes visitors past the hangars, the maintenance area, the fire brigade and the rescue service across the apron to the runway intersection, where departing aircraft can be observed up close. Continuing past Dock A, the Airside Center, the freight hall and the Rega (air rescue), guests arrive at Dock E. While crossing through the nature conservation area between the runways, visitors can see how nature and technology work together as good neighbours. Finally, the tour returns to the departure point through the road tunnel underneath runway 28.

In addition to the expanded guided tours, the switch to summertime also sees the opening of the observation deck on Dock E on three days. The observation deck can be reached only by shuttle bus from observation deck B.

The observation deck on Dock B, which opened a year ago, will be open daily from 08:00 – 20:00 for airport visitors after the switch to summertime. This is where young and older guests can all experience the fascination of flying up close. These insights and views of flight operations at Zurich Airport are one-of-a-kind in the world.

New panorama panels will be commissioned at six excursion points around the airport site in spring 2013. The panels contain plenty of interesting information about the airport, and a QR code provides access to in-depth background information.
