Munich-Zurich Airport to be the First International ‘Swiss Air Rail’ Route

Swiss Air is expanding its collaboration with SBB Swiss Federal Railways on its intermodal transport service, which will in future be known as ‘Swiss Air Rail’.

From July 2022 onwards, Swiss customers can travel on the first-ever international rail/air connection in the form of a new train service between Munich Hauptbahnhof and Zurich Airport. Swiss Air Rail services in Switzerland are also set to be further expanded in collaboration with the SBB.

The new Munich-Zurich Airport route joins the existing rail/air services between Zurich Airport and the SBB stations of Basel SBB, Lugano and Geneva which have been gradually established over the past few years under the ‘Airtrain’ name.

The new Munich service is the first such rail/air connection between Zurich Airport and a point in a neighbouring country.

From 1 July 2022 onwards, travellers holding a Swiss flight ticket can take advantage of rail services between Munich Hauptbahnhof and Zurich Airport which can be seamlessly combined with their flight.

“Together with the SBB, we’re taking a big step forward in offering our customers complementary travel options, we are jointly seeking to provide smarter combinations of rail and air transport wherever these make sense. And we’re marking a particular milestone here in offering – with Munich – our first-ever international Swiss Air Rail connection.” said Swiss Chief Commercial Officer Tamur Goudarzi Pour.
