Zurich Flughafen

Zurich Airport

As a powerful driver of the local economy, Zurich Airport is an important location factor. It benefits not only Zurich itself but also regions far beyond the borders of the canton and Switzerland itself.

More than 25,000 people work in approximately 280 companies based at Zurich Airport. Combined, they directly and indirectly generate over six billion Swiss francs in added value.

As the largest airport in Switzerland, Zurich Airport also plays a crucial role in ensuring that the Greater Zurich Area is extremely accessible from anywhere in the world. This is a key advantage for major international companies that need the most direct and reliable connections to their clients and markets throughout the entire world. In an increasingly globalized and competitive business environment, the success of the growing Swiss export industry is also often entirely dependent on fast and very secure air freight services.

Zurich Airport is Switzerland's gateway to the world. As many direct connections to the most important cities in the world are central to Switzerland as a business location, as well as for export industries and tourism. We must ensure that this infrastructure, which is of national importance, can continue to develop so that it will benefit generations to come
