Zurich airport is great. I didn't expect it to be so good, but it was fantastic to land at.

The newest Dock (Midfield) and the Airside Center were opened in 2003. The other Docks and Terminals were renovated in the last few years.


By the way.
Zürich Airport has recently won the World Travel Award as the best European Hub! (And Swiss as best European Airline )


I will add more pictures when I got time to do so.

But in this Thread are some Pictures of the airport surroundings in the north of Zurich:

This year 20,7 Mio Passengers will be counted travelling via Zurich Kloten. This is the best result since 9/11 and the airport authorities expect around 22 Mio Passengers in 2008

Does the layout of the runways permit more than one take-off/landing at the same time? Or perhaps an aircraft can land on one, and take-off from another?

I loved using Zurich airport. I flew in with Malaysian Airlines from Kuala Lumpur and we used the satellite terminal, the little train to the terminal is by far the coolest I've ever used. The train station benieth was a bit confusing though.

Pictures?

Don't you guys have any pictures to post here? I think pictures are probably the most important thing that is lacking in most airport threads. Here are a few suggestions of pics that I am personally eager to see from ZRH:

Terminal Landside (Interior)
Curbside Terminal
Baggage Claim
Schengen Gates
Non-Schengen Gates
Shops
Signage

Unfortunately I have never used Zurich airport, but I always hear nice comments about it, so I'm looking forward to seeing some pictures here. Thank you all.

The best part is the airport shuttle that connects the terminals.
With Alphorn sounds and mooing cows. And a movie in the tunnel.
