Connection time worry- please help

Swiss Airlines leaving Tel Aviv with connection in Zurich. There is 1 hour 20 minutes connection time. Is this enough time to connect to an America Airlines flight from Zurich to New York City in Zurich Airport?

Need to know asap or else I need to cancel my ticket

Hi there,

Generally yes. Almost all Swiss flights from outside Schengen arrive/leave from the 2nd terminal across the runway. Also you won't have to pass any formalities, just move to NY gate for security checks. No reason to worry, even if you would not have the 2nd boarding pass already. This all assuming you are on 1 ticket with the luggage labeled directly to NY.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

I looked this combination up on the Swiss site and the AA site and I think you will be fine. IF the inbound LX (swiss) flight is late, and you miss the outbound AA flight Swiss will re-book you. 1hr 20 mins is a LOT of time to connect in ZRH!!
