New stands in Zone West
In “Zone West”, one of the largest development areas remaining at Zurich Airport, two stands for aircraft up to code E (e.g. Boeing 777) were created and came on stream in October 2017. At the end of April, plane spotters' hill was opened. This is a new, raised viewing platform which is located right next to the relocated airport fence and is over four metres high and offers an uninterrupted view of the airport.
