Political newsletter

Close link to Switzerland's political levels

Flughafen Zürich AG has been operating Zurich Airport under private law since 2000 and on the basis of a concession issued by the Confederation which runs until 2051.

With the Confederation as the licensor, Canton Zurich as the main shareholder of Flughafen Zürich AG, and five municipalities bordering the airport site, Flughafen Zürich AG is closely linked to Switzerland's various political levels. Furthermore, owing to its considerable economic importance for business but also the negative effects associated with airport operations for the general public, the airport assumes a special status.

The Political Newsletter informs political players, association representatives, business leaders and interested parties of topical airport issues and airport policy on a quarterly basis. Its main purpose is to highlight the complex relationships and dependencies between technology, business, politics and society.
