Zurich Airport: Additional security measures for direct flights to the USA
The American Transport Security Administration TSA is extending individual security measures to other European airports. This will also affect passengers on direct flights from Zurich to the USA with immediate effect.
The TSA has ordered additional security measures for flights from Zurich to the USA. Effective immediately, passengers travelling on direct flights to the USA may now be subjected to an additional security check at the departure gates. This may include checking that electronic devices are operational. We therefore recommend all passengers on direct flights to the USA to ensure that their mobile phones, laptops, tablets, cameras or other electronic devices are charged. Devices with empty batteries will not be allowed on board. The airlines offering direct flights from Zurich to the USA are responsible for implementing the new security measures. Passengers are therefore requested to contact their airline directly if they need further information.
