Attractive excursions at Zurich Airport
With the switch from standard to daylight-saving time, Flughafen Zürich AG is once again expanding what's on offer at the observation decks in 2014. There is now a free shuttle bus to observation deck E.
With the move to daylight saving time, the observation deck at Dock B, where visitors can experience the "fascination of flying" up close, will once again be open to airport visitors from 8:00 to 20:00 daily. The observation deck is the only one of its kind in the world, offering visitors unrivalled insights and views of flight operations at Zurich Airport.
Starting from Sunday 30 March 2014, public tours of Zurich Airport will take place every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. The guided tours offer something for young and old alike. Lasting 75 minutes, they take visitors to the hangars, maintenance area, airport fire brigade and rescue service, before passing by the apron to the runway intersection. Tickets for the tours can be purchased directly from the tour desk at observation deck B from midday onwards.
In addition to the extra tours, the move to daylight-saving time means the observation deck at Dock E is now once again open on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Observation deck E, known as "Viewpoint A380", can be reached by shuttle bus from observation deck B. This bus is now provided free of charge. People wishing to visit observation deck E must pay the admission for observation deck B.
