Zurich Airport is Third in the World

by swisscham in General Interest

Zurich Airport has scooped third place in the ÒHandelszeitungÓ Airport Ranking 2018. In a repeated run of success, EuropeÕs best airport was beaten only by Singapore and Hong Kong. Anyone landing at Singapore Changi Airport will make it Òfrom airport to taxiÓ within 25 minutes, Òincluding immigration control, baggage collection and customs clearanceÓ, writes Claus Schweitzer in the Airport Ranking 2018 published by ÒHandelszeitungÓ. It has been Òthe worldÕs best airport for yearsÓ, and the only negative Schweitzer could find was the complicated WLAN access. In second place, Hong Kong International Airport boasts the Òattractive new The Deck lounge with open-air terrace and view over the airfieldÓ. But Zurich Airport too lays claim to an open-air area Ð and it is among the reasons the airport has once again scooped third place in the ranking. With Òaround 300,000 visitors annuallyÓ, the observation deck is Òone of SwitzerlandÕs most popular attractionsÓ, writes Schweitzer. While Zurich also scored well for its Òclear signage, predominantly pleasing passenger flow and exemplary connection to public transportÓ, Schweitzer and the frequent flyers surveyed for the ranking were unhappy with the time-consuming new Automated Border Control gates and the Skymetro, which is often overcrowded.
