all depends where your flight is from, which stand you go to etc - if you are non schengen then unless you are very very very lucky forget it.

i have been off plane and out in under 10 mins so it is possible
Coming from Manchester with EasyJet not sure if UK are Schengen...what terminal is this likely to arrive at?

Who are you flying with? Last week my dads budget flight from Manchester was due in to Zurich at 1345, it grazed the runway at 2pm then continued on to Stuttgart to refuel before returning to Zurich and finally landing at around 4pm.
Yep arriving at 13.45 from Manchester seems to be the same flight

Re: Flight arriving 13.45 Zurich will I make 14.04 train?

So there are just soooo many factors for you here.

1. Is there any delay in taking off?
2. which terminal in ZRH does it arrive at?? if it arrives at E forget about making it. you first need to take a train to the main terminal and that in itself takes time.
3. Does it stop on the tarmac and then get taken to the terminal via a bus? if so you probably wont make it either.
4. if its not on the tarmac with a bus, how far forward in the plane are you sitting? Sitting at the back could add an extra 5 mins to your waiting time while the passengers in front get out and grab their stuff etc.
5. will you be at the very last gate on the terminal? if so you have a lot of walking to do.


if absolutely ALL elements are in your favor then you should be able to make the 14:04. But usually this requires a big coincidence.

Relax, just take it easy. You'll never make it, not a hope in hell. A 14:30 train maybe, but not the 14:04.

What's your flight number? You can check which stand the flight arrives at today, it might be similar tomorrow. If you arrive at terminal 1 you'll be quicker than E which is Midfield or remote stands to the west which require shuttle buses that add at least 15 minutes of hassle.

If you have an iPhone, then download the SBB Mobile app and process your e-ticket over the net.
Just checked today's flight - EZY1865 from Manchester - it arrives at '2' which I presume means terminal 2.

I bought a train ticket online at sbb.ch from Zurich Flughafen to Basel SBB. Can I use this for indirect trains also - i.e. if I have to change at Zurich HB? Hope so I'll be a bit if not.

Yes, you'll be fine. Even the direct train to Basel from Zurich Flughafen is technically via Zurich HB, since it stops in the same zone as Zurich HB.

Yes. you can use the same ticket traveling via Zurich HB as well.

If you are coming into terminal 2 that means a bus from the aircraft , make sure you are on the first bus

today's flight landed at 13:31 so maybe

Ok well I made the 14.04 for anyone that's interested. The plane landed pretty much on time, I was up the front and only had carry on luggage and had bought and printed off my train ticket in advance. I jumped on the train thingy that takes people to the exit and made my way at a fast pace - didn't run - to the platform and made it onto the train at 14.02
