<<"From Annika's link to the timetable, I see that there is a train leaving Zurich Airport at 5:47 pm reaching Andermatt at 8:30. Is this a direct train or are there changes?">>
The time table also shows two changes on that trip. Actually, arrives at 2023, not 2030.
One change is at Zürich main station (inbound track 5, outbound track 7, 10 minutes which is plenty), the other at Göschenen, ( 27 minutes for the change) where you pick up the narrow gauge equipment.
More than likely, if your plane is on time, you can catch an earlier train from the airport to Zürich main station. They run frequently, many per hour, baggage return is fast , and , if your plane is on time, you are likely to catch a train 1 1/2 hours or less after arrival.
Trains leave the airport for that connection at 1547, 1647, 1747...If you pick the one with change at Arth Goldau...that one is easy. Just walk across the platform.
With the Swiss Travel Pass, you are can be flexible on which trains you take. Good idea to get it online before you leave the States.
