This is another Central European airport that has lots of diversions for victims of delays or people enduring long layovers. An observation deck (shown here) 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.
