Hello travelers,

Unfortunately Russia invaded Ukraine. You may wonder if this affects your trip to Switzerland in any way.

Unless you live in Belarus, Russia or Ukraine, there is little or no impact on trips to Switzerland.

If you fly to Switzerland, your flight might take longer if you'd normally fly over the territory of those countries or with an airline from those countries. That's because there are travel bans for Russian airlines and airspace over conflict zones is closed.

Conflicts like these do have economic effects. Energy prices rise (which already started in 2021), products and services may get more expensive. On the other hand, if there would be less demand for some reason, prices can also get lower.

The shortest distance between Switzerland and Ukraine is 1000 km. Switzerland is surrounded by NATO and EU countries and not directly involved in this war.

Our thoughts are with the Ukrainians. Hopefully this conflict will be resolved soon.
