In terms of ticketing - yes it is as simple as that. If you already have the Pass with you just go from the Airport arrirvals to the railway platforms.
BUT the travel is not a simple as you have written, although you can avoid Zurich's main station, and also avoid changing trains at the busy Bern HB main station.
You will need to get on a route IC8 service. Route IC8 is Romanshorn - Zurich Flughafen - Bern - Spiez - Brig. Trains leave Zurich Flughafen at xx.40 past each hour (eg 11.40)
To avoid changing at Bern, continue on the IC8 service as far as SPIEZ, then change into a train going towards Interlaken Ost.
At Interlaken Ost you change onto the BOB (Berner Oberland Bahn) narrow gauge train (bright blue and yellow livery). The BOB trains run as one train which splits at Zweilutschinen. Make sure you board the portion going to Grindelwald not the portion going to Lauterbrunnen!
No advanced reservation is needed on any of the trains I have just described, although you will need to board trains promptly if there are six of you together.
