Hello zbm and Welcome to MySwissAlps
Finding a pass that works well for a sort visit is tricky. The most straightforward would be a 3-day Swiss Travel Pass (www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass) with point to point ticket from Zurich Airport.
You could look at the Swiss Half-fare Card (www.myswissalps.com/sw isshalffarecard) and/or the Saver Day Pass (www.myswissalps.com/sa verdaypass and bit.ly/2rkekat) for the longer trips and point-to-point tickets to get from and to airports.
The Swiss Half-fare Card costs CHF120 which is pretty much offset by the savings you make on a return trip from Interlaken to Jungfraujoch.
By far the best way to check timetables, find fares* and buy tickets on-line if required is using the SBB Mobile app (bit.ly/2ICIUHi). In the unlikely event you don’t have a device capable of running the app then you can use the timetable on the SBB website (bit.ly/2HH1U7B). If you are not familiar with using the timetable it will pay to first read the instructions at www.myswissalps.com/ti metable.
* The SBB website shows half-fare prices by default, the mobile app allows you to nominate whether to show full or half-fares (by editing the passenger details in settings) and is also smart enough to offer you the Saver Day Pass (www.myswissalps.com/sa verdaypass) if that offers the best fare. The app also show a platform map (at least at the larger stations) to help you make conections.
Hardly worth it for your length of stay but the official advice is that based on your personal itinerary you should read “How to choose the best travel pass” (www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass), download the handy spreadsheet calculator and do the math. The spreadsheet also includes links to the “Where it's valid" page for all available passes. Be sure to check those pages for each pass you are considering. Study the map AND read all the text on those pages to fully understand what is covered by the respective pass.
