Structure

In 2003, Zürich Airport completed a major expansion project in which it built a new parking garage, a new midfield terminal, and an automated underground train to move passengers between the existing terminal complex and the new terminal. In November 2008, Unique Company announced a complete renovation and rebuild of the old fingerdock 'B' structure. The visitor terrace will be temporarily closed during construction, but airport officials announced that a terrace will be included in the new structure.

Traffic

The airport lost a lot of traffic when Swissair shut down its operations. Since Lufthansa took over its successor Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS), traffic has started growing again.

Zürich Airport handled 22.1 million passengers in 2008.

Connectivity

Zürich airport railway station (Bahnhof SBB Flughafen Zürich) is located underneath the terminal. There are trains to many parts of Switzerland; frequent S-Bahn Zürich services on the lines S2, S3 and S16 and of the Glatttalbahn (Zürich tram line 10), plus direct InterRegio and InterCity services to Winterthur, Berne, Basel, Brig, St. Gallen, Lucerne (German: Luzern) and Konstanz in Germany. It also has EuroCity services to Munich in Germany. By changing trains at Zürich Hauptbahnhof most other places in Switzerland can be reached in a few hours.
