New Swiss Lounge at Zurich Airport

New Swiss Lounge at Zurich Airport

Swiss International Air Lines premium passengers using the new Dock B’s non-Schengen zone at Zurich Airport have a new 650 sq m Lounge D to work or relax in – and for all inbound Business Class passengers whose flights are not assigned a dock stand, Swiss has introduced an exclusive bus service from the aircraft. The airline is also extending its new corporate identity to its home hub airport by adopting the new Swiss logo in all prominent locations.

Zurich Airport has also created a new security check building that, with its centralised concept and user-friendly state-of-the-art technologies, will bring substantially more efficiency to the security check process. Swiss First and Business travellers, along with Senator and HON Circle status customers, will have special priority lanes. 

The new Lounge D 
Miles & More status members who remain in the non-Schengen zone of the new Dock B once they have negotiated the centralised security check can take advantage of the new Swiss Lounge D, which is just beyond the passport check for non-Schengen departing travellers, and thus close to the Dock B gates.

Extending over 650 square metres, the light-flooded lounge offers visitors ample opportunity to work or rest. Its Vitra designer armchairs, Jurassic limestone walls and generously sized windows looking out over the apron area all help to create a pleasant and relaxing ambience.

The lounge is divided into two sections – one for Senators and Star Gold Card holders, and the other for Business Class travellers and Miles & More frequent travellers. Each section is provided with a separate working zone featuring free wireless LAN, a spacious bistro area (with buffet) and an extensive range of newspapers and magazines. For travellers using the new Lounge D, it is a quick and direct walk to their Dock B departure gate.
