Inspiring moments, lively encounters, infinite possibilities: THE CIRCLE is the new place to be at Zurich Airport.
THE CIRCLE – Zurich’s new destination. Boasting some 180,000 m² of floorspace, this trailblazing centre is set to enhance Zurich’s attractiveness well into the future. Completion is scheduled for the end of 2019.
Terminal 2 upgrade
Terminal 2 opened in 1975 and is an integral part of Zurich Airport's core infrastructure.
In addition to the main check-in hall on Level 2, Terminal 2 is also home to Arrival 2 as well as various retail outlets and offices. Following more than three decades at the heart of flight operations, Flughafen Zürich AG launched an extensive building upgrade project in 2010.
Redesign of curbside lane
In order to meet exacting quality requirements and to guarantee the continued functionality of its infrastructure, Flughafen Zürich AG is refurbishing the curbside lanes along the terminals on both levels.
The existing curbside lane bridge in the Terminal 2 area will also be extended. In addition to the renewal of the zones and traffic lane surfaces, a new, centralised taxi loading zone will be created between the terminals.
Stands in Zone West
Flughafen Zürich AG sees Zone West, the largest remaining development area for aviation, as an apron and hangar space at Zurich Airport.
Ultimately, a highly flexible apron will be created, which will be bordered to the south and west by development areas for buildings.
Expansion of Delta stands
This project entails construction work between the south apron and runway 16/34. It also includes the construction of a substitute area for handling infrastructure (unit load device stacker and container warehouse) in the Cheibenwinkel area (former shooting stand).
In order to upgrade the existing Delta stands to full-fledged code E stands, the stand depth must be expanded from the current 63 m to 78 m.
P6 east expansion
Flughafen Zürich AG plans to build more parking facilities at the airport.
Thus creating the facilities required to handle the expected increase in passengers over the next 10 years on the land side too.
