We are a semi-public listed company operating one of the most important transport and meeting hubs in Switzerland along with a further eight airports abroad. Flughafen Zürich AG employs some 1700 people at its Zurich site. Together with staff from the other companies based there, they are part of our wider airport family of around 25,000 employees working in and around the airport (including Circle), making it a major provider of jobs in the region. Our core activities are spread between three business areas: transport hubs, commercial centers and real estate.
Zurich Airport is a high-quality airport that enjoys an excellent reputation and regularly wins awards for its outstanding services, short transfer distances, friendly staff, the cleanliness of its infrastructure and the reliability of its processes.
The Swiss government formulates our mandate as follows: "Switzerland's airports are its national hubs for international air travel. They are key elements of Switzerland's critical infrastructure and part of its overall transport system. Their purpose is to satisfy market demand for flight connections. Zurich Airport must be able to fulfil its role as a European hub for global air transport now and in future. It should provide an attractive operational framework that enables airlines to use the airport as a hub."
As the operator of Zurich Airport, we seek to balance profitability against environmental and social responsibility. We accept our responsibilities towards employees, partner companies, customers, the public and the environment. We are continually developing our environmental efficiency and expertise, setting targets that go beyond regulatory requirements.
