Zurich Airport is Switzerland’s gateway to the world. Experience aircraft up close from the observation decks; just a few metres away from the steel jet liners. Butterflies in your stomach are guaranteed.
Planes take off and land just 100 metres away, alongside observation decks B and E. Nowhere else in the world can you get so close to aircraft in action.
