Zurich Airport is working with partners to ensure that air travel is safe as passengers start to return this month.

Swiss International Air Lines and Edelweiss Air plan to restart flights from Zurich for short-haul and long-haul routes in the coming weeks.

Partners at the airport have made plans based on recommendations from the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health, including more intense cleaning and deploying cleaning robots.

Contact surfaces will be disinfected regularly and hand sanitizer dispensers have been provided at over 200 locations.

Vending machines are dispensing masks and sanitizer, and while wearing a mask is not compulsory, airport users are being advised to do so.

Working with the police, the overflow levels at security checkpoints have been reopened and while checks are still being conducted, care is being taken to reduce the risk of infection.

As many passport booths will be open as possible and more queuing areas will be provided to help people maintain social distancing.

At check-in concourses, every other desk will be staffed, and flights will be handled at Docks A and B, where they will be assigned gates wherever possible to optimize the use of gate zones inside.

Buses will have their capacity reduced and passengers will have their temperature taken before boarding, wherever it is required for their destination or airline.

Airport operator Flughafen Zurich says the measures will be constantly checked and modified as required.
