Aim and implementation
To prevent local residents from additional awakenings by early-morning inbound flights, some 10,000 bedrooms under the southern landing path will be fitted with automatic window drives or sound-absorbing ventilators.
In total, over 1,000 properties in Opfikon, Wallisellen, Zurich-Schwamendingen, Stettbach and Gockhausen are affected.
Flughafen Zürich AG is responsible for implementing the south-side protection concept. The scheme is based on the decision of Swiss Federal Administrative Court of 14 October 2015.
