New Stands Echo North
SWISS is replacing its AVRO RJ 100 fleet with new Bombardier CS 100 aircraft. Therefore the new stands at Dock E are compensating the loss of stand space caused by the aircraft's larger wingspan.
Since the constricted space on the apron to the south of runway 10-28 will not accommodate the same number of stands for the new aircraft type, the zone to the north of Dock E was selected for these replacements.
Waste water from de-icing
Flughafen Zürich AG uses a globally unique sprinkler system to treat waste water from de-icing operations. Following a five-year pilot project, the systems are to be developed to achieve an even higher level of treatment.
Extension of car park 6 south
The extension to car park 6 is being built as a replacement for car park 5. The project involves extending car park 6 to the south by adding a total of four rows of parking spaces (Comfort Class B) on all floors, providing some 1,300 parking spaces.
Runway 14-32 was commissioned in 1976. It was designed to have a service life of 30 years. Owing to the heavy use of the main landing runway and the long period of use, the pavement on runway 14-32 was so badly damaged that complete replacement was ncessary.
Noise protection hangar
Zurich Airport is home to compa-nies that service, maintain and repair aircraft and engines.
For the duration of the instruction work, Flughafen Zürich AG is providing a temporary, U-shaped run-up pen on the hangar apron that is open at the top.
The VIP Service at Zurich Airport intends to become established as a premium service in the future. It should appeal to travellers who do not have much time and have above-average requirements in terms of comfort and discretion.
