SWISS opens new Arrival Lounge at Zurich Airport

The luxurious 700 sq. m. lounge offers arriving passengers a wide range of services including facilities for working, relaxation and freshening up.

Located in the public area of Arrivals 2 at Zurich Airport, the lounge is readily accessible within a few minutes of landing and particularly appealing for passengers coming off long-haul flights. The lounge is fitted with state-of-the-art equipment and features elegant SWISS design. A distinctive limestone wall from the Jura Mountains of Switzerland and suitably stylish furniture combine to create an appealing atmosphere.

The SWISS Arrival Lounge’s impressively spacious refresh facilities include 20 showers, from which it is possible to order an ironing service with the press of a button. Three hotel-style bedrooms, one with a private bathroom, round out the features of this attractive facility. Lounge users with a thirst to quench or hunger to satisfy will find the bistro area offers an extensive buffet with a wide selection of cold and warm breakfast dishes along with fresh juices and a choice of coffees. The adjacent lounge area is furnished with comfortable Vitra seats and enhanced by a comprehensive selection of newspapers and magazines. Guests wishing to get some work done will be able to take advantage of the 10 work stations and free W-LAN. Guests also have a private telephone cubicle at their disposal where they make calls undisturbed.

The Arrival Lounge, which is open daily from 05:45 to 13:00 and replaces the former Arrival Lounge in Arrivals 1, is available to SWISS status customers as well as to SWISS Business and First Class passengers.

“Premium passengers coming from Dubai with onward connections to other destinations can freshen up or get additional downtime upon arrival.  If, for example, Zurich is the final destination and an early morning meeting is the first item for the day, our passengers can leisurely take a shower and change to a crisp new shirt before heading off.  The new welcome lounge speaks of nothing but comfort and luxury befitting our customers,” said Martin Massueger, Director, Head of Sales Middle East, Africa, Pakistan & Iran for SWISS.
