Do you have specific interests in Basel?
There are other good museums, too
In general, barring some interesting specifics like the Beyeler and the Tinguely sculpture, Basel does not offer the touristic experience of Luzern, or even Zürich in my personal opinion.
However, if you have identified specific targets go for it.
Luzern is only a short train ride from Zürich Flughafen. As little as one hour and 2 minutes every hour at xx47 direct, or 1 hour and 7 minutes every hour at xx18, with a change in Zürich.
Many people go directly from the airport to a base in Luzern. If they wish to explore Zürich, it is one of several choices for easy day trips from Luzern.
