Slow recovery since June
After some airlines have partially resumed its flight operations and shops, especially on landside, have reopened, a slow recovery is becoming apparent at Zurich Airport. Passenger volumes and the number of flight movements have been increasing since the beginning of June. From an operational and commercial perspective, Zurich Airport is prepared to gradually ramp up operations and works closely with the airport partners to ensure safe and efficient operations. While it is not yet possible to provide guidance for the expected traffic volumes for the current year, it is currently estimated that the pre-crisis level will be reached again in 2023.
