Airlines that fly from Dublin to Zurich

Aer Lingus and Swiss fly from Dublin Airport to Zurich International Airport. Aer Lingus is one of Ireland’s national carriers, and Swiss operate many flights between the Scandinavian countries and the rest of Europe.

You could also use one of the other airlines, if you are willing to fly on a non-direct flight.

Terminal Information - Departing

Swiss depart from Terminal 1 at Dublin Airport, whereas Aer Lingus depart from Terminal 2.

You’ll have a choice of places to eat in both Terminal 1 and 2. Terminal 1 is usually slightly busier, as it is the larger terminal of the two. There is also a small selection of shops for your perusal in both terminals.

Both terminals are equipped with comfortable airline lounges, but if you’re staying in the waiting lounges instead, you still have free Wifi and power points to use.

The airport is well signposted, and there is a clear walkway between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2.

Terminal Information - Arriving

There are limited facilities at Zurich Airport. At the time of writing, Wifi is not free, and the food and drink outlets are expensive too. However, you should be able to exit with ease.

To reach the public transport links, go to Check-In 3 and ask at the Careport for more information. Exiting from Zurich Airport is typically quite a smooth process, however, you should note that if your flight arrives late in the evening there are limited bus and train services into the city.

The trains stop at 00.30am, and begin at 5am. It costs around 6 Swiss Francs (€6) for a one-way ticket on the train, and half that price for children. Make sure you are carrying enough Francs to pay for the train. This is also the fastest way to reach the city. If you know you will be relying on the train, invest in a ZurichCard when you land – this is Zurich’s ‘Oyster’ card. It costs 24 Francs (€24) for 24 hours of unlimited public transport journeys on the ZurichCard.

There is also a Shuttle Bus you can take into the city, but you will need to reserve your space with your hotel at least 2 hours before your flight arrives. The fare depends on your destination.

Alternatively, you can take a cab into the city, which will cost between €50-70. It usually takes 15 minutes to reach the centre.

Practical Information

When flying between European countries, you will have to arrive 2 hours prior to your flight to allow enough time to go through security and check in.

There is a Bureau de Change at Zurich Airport; however, you should consider whether or not it would be open when you arrive. The safest option is to order the currency and collect it from the Bureau at Dublin Airport in either Terminal 1 or 2.

What to expect in Zurich

Zurich is one of the most expensive cities in the world, so be prepared to pay a little extra for your morning coffee, taxis and evenings out. They use the Swiss Franc, which is currently almost the same value as the Euro. Some shops will accept the Euro in Zurich, but the exchange rate will not be in your favour.
