Located nearly 13 kilometers away from central Zurich, the airport serves as a common landing to reach Zurich and Davos apart from a few others. It houses four terminals named A, B and E. Each of them cater to their respective responsibilities. The airport also has a complex by the name ‘The Circle’ which has restaurants, hotels, conference center and a number of other facilities. These were primarily built around the airport. A few airlines and other companies have their offices located about the place to ease operations.
All the terminals of this airport are linked to a central airside, which also comprises several other establishments. After crossing the airport security, passengers are segregated based on the region they are visiting as Schengen and non-Schengen. The non-Schengen visitors are given preference to pass through the immigration. The airport also separates the travellers and flights into one of the three terminals depending on their policies.
Terminal A, opened in 1971, serves exclusively for flights from the Schengen region and the domestic flights of Switzerland. It takes the form of a finger pie, due to its expansion in the 1980’s. This terminal would soon be demolished and replaced with an entirely different one from 2021. Terminal B has gates B and D and accommodates passengers from both Schengen and non-Schengen regions. The passengers are categorized accordingly at the entry. Terminal E has been in use since 2003 and is mainly used for non-Schengen flights. This is also connected to the Airside by a Skymetro, which moves people underground to and from the airside.
The airport also has three runways number 10, 14 and 16. Most of the time, runway 14 is used for landings and runways 16 and 10 for takeoffs. Under demanding conditions, this might change. Early mornings and evenings experience a different schedule usually.
The airport is connected to Davos by multiple means in the form of road, rail and bus. A direct train connects it to the city which runs less frequently. The other route operates from central Zurich station which can be reached by bus. Though the other prominent mode of transfer is not operational directly, it can be utilized completely from the central city.
