You can fly into Zurich airport from most countries and major cities in the world. We flew in with British Airways from London Heathrow. The flight took around 1 hour and 40 minutes. Arriving in Zurich it was a short walk to security, a short wait for our bags, and we were through into the arrivals hall in no time.

There was good signposting from the terminal to direct us to the attached train station. Trains run between the airport and Zurich's main station (Hauptbahnhof) every 10 minutes (during peak times), and the journey takes only about 10 minutes. Some of these trains also continue on to various destinations around the country.

If you prefer, there are buses that also go into central Zurich, and many of the larger hotels also have a shuttle bus service. A taxi from the airport to central Zurich will cost you around CHF 50.
