VIP Lounge

In future the VIP service at Zurich Airport will become a premium service designed to appeal to discerning travellers who are short on time and have a need for comfort and discretion.

The primary aim here is to provide support for passengers across the various VIP processes, including the lounge and an expanded range of services.

The current VIP Lounge is over 25 years old. Both in terms of standards and size (165 m2), it no longer meets the space requirements of a modern VIP service. In addition, the current infrastructure will be affected by the planned southern expansion of Terminal 2 in 2013 and will be subsequently closed.


Lounge infrastructure

The available (gross) floor area of around 900 mon level G0 of the existing building offers space for a reception area, lounge and bistro, quiet zone, smoking lounge, meeting room and workstations, as well as showers and toilets, kitchen and back-office.

A high-quality range of services, interior design and lighting architecture, plus enhanced room climate and improvements to the external spaces in immediate proximity will compensate for the constraints imposed by the building that make the space less than optimal (in terms of room height, amount of daylight and views).
Additional space of around 300 mis required for the ventilation, air-conditioning, plumbing and electrical systems infrastructure.


Net total space (SIA 416): Approx. 800 m(only level G0)
Construction start: February 2013
Space for building services: Approx. 300 m(only level G01)
Operational start: November 2013
Room height: 2.40 m – 2.70 m
Investment volume: CHF 9.0 million
