Cheap flight tickets to Switzerland

Cheap flights to Switzerland

Switzerland is a land-locked, mountainous country in Central Europe known for the Swiss Alps. While the country has several airports, many tourists book Switzerland flights to Zurich, Geneva, and Bern. These popular cities are the ideal jump-off points to any Switzerland trip.

Zurich Airport (also called Kloten Airport) is the largest international airport in Switzerland and the main hub of Swiss International Air Lines. Zurich Airport is already a destination in itself with its interesting range of facilities and establishments satisfying shopaholics, foodies and all other types of travellers arriving in the country. Zurich’s city centre is just ten minutes away by train from Zurich Airport. Buses, taxis and limousines are also available at the airport to bring you to your onward destination.

Why plan a trip to Switzerland

Switzerland is unquestionably breathtaking. With its stunning Alps, scenic train rides – and of course, world-class cheese and chocolates, no wonder Switzerland has been constantly tagged as “the best country in the world”.

Most travellers begin their Switzerland trip in Zurich, the largest city and the gateway to many of Switzerland's notable attractions. When in Zurich, rent a bike or explore the city on foot from its Old Town down to the prehistoric pile dwellings around Lake Zurich. The Swiss National Museum, Money Museum, FIFA World Football Museum, and the Botanical Garden are worth visiting too.

Hop on a train or book cheap flights to Switzerland’s ‘capital of peace’, Geneva. United Nations, Red Cross, and CERN, a research institution housing the world’s largest particle physics laboratory, are all located in Geneva. Travel to Bern, Switzerland’s capital city, too! Bern’s Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and its six kilometres of arcades make the city home to one of Europe’s longest covered shopping promenades.

What’s a Switzerland trip without taking a scenic train ride? Hop on the Glacier Express or Bernina Express, and prepare for the ride of your life as you pass by breathtaking views of the Swiss Alps, and stop by awe-inspiring UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Complete your travel bucket list by seeing the “most photographed mountain” in the world, Matterhorn. This is the so-called “Toblerone Mountain” and an iconic symbol of Switzerland.

Alternatively, explore Switzerland as part of an epic road trip in Europe by renting a car when you arrive at Zurich airport.

Best time to visit Switzerland

Switzerland is a well-known skiing and winter holiday destination. Thus, there is no denying that the best time to visit the country is during its winter season (December to February). As it is the peak season, expect some crowds and higher cost of travel. Spring (April to June) and autumn (September to November) are the shoulder seasons when there are fewer tourists, and the weather is generally mild. Getting better holiday deals and cheap flights to Switzerland is easier during these periods. Summer (July to Aug) is also a good time if you plan on hiking and doing more outdoor adventures amidst lush landscapes.
