This is another Central European airport that has lots of diversions for victims of delays or people enduring long layovers. An observation deck makes it possible to see the goings-on at this busy airport. Wi-Fi is not universally free, but each passenger can get 60 minutes of free access on a mobile device and then 60 minutes at a free computer kiosk. Iconic Swiss brands like Mont Blanc, Bucherer and Swatch have shops inside Zurich's terminals. Day-rooms with sofas and plush chairs with blankets are available for rent for less than the price of access to the airport's pay-in lounges.
