Hummm, thinking of this beautiful country right now. I remember when I visited Switzerland for the first time in 2002, I flew with Swiss International Airlines (for professional and personal interests). The scariest take off I have ever experienced so far (because of the weather, maybe, but the pilot was good and plane in good condition, I suppose). When the plane was about to land in Zurich (at around 04.00 am), I said to myself: "So this is Switzerland...this is Zurich!".

Line at the immigration/passport control was non-existent. The immigration agent, upon seeing my Spanish resident card, spoke to me in Spanish and asked if I was from Barcelona. I told him I was from Madrid.

Upon clearing the immigration, I was offered a free ride to the city centre by my former classmate (Aileen, where are you, I'm here!, lol) and her Swiss boyfriend and toured me around for a while, took pictures and they left me at some square whose name I don't remember now, lol. Had few tears (owssss!) when I saw some familiar landmarks that I used to watch on TV programs and films I borrowed from the Swiss Embassy. I was simply obsessed with Switzerland that I decided to study French (another story). I am not obsessed anymore but I still like the country. Besides, I have some Swiss friends so the link is still there.....

I'd like to visit Switzerland again and see more of the country and experience other stuff that I did not experience before on my first visit...........

C'est un pays tres beau.....


Zürich Airport is a major international airport in Switzerland. It is also the hub of Swiss International Airlines.

What is interesting about this airport is the many possibilities for plane spotting.

Here is a simple guide for plane spotting experience in Zürich Airport!

Zürich Airport is a destination in its own right: see aeroplanes from all over the world take off and land, watch all the special-purpose vehicles go about their business... a fascinating airport world awaits you.


Article from Zürich-Airport.com:

Amazing, exciting, educational...not only will you encounter people from all countries and cultures, you can get close to the comings and goings on the tarmac on the terraces of Docks B and E.

A visit to Zürich Airport is an experience to remember, especially for your children. Why not schedule a visit here as an unforgettable birthday treat, perhaps with a guided behind-the-scenes tour? And good food and drink is certainly not a problem, especially since the new restaurants opened their doors on the Dock B terrace.

Some airport aficionados pay us regular weekly visits – to enjoy the atmosphere and to see what is new at Zürich Airport!

Terrace
The Dock B terrace gets you closest to the planes. Then take the shuttle bus to Dock E, from where you have the best views of the runways.

Guided tours
How does an airport work? Where are the refrigerated storehouses for the fruits and flowers that are flown in from South America? The guided tour is a must for anyone who wants to know more about the workings of an airport.
