Thank to myswissalps I have set up my entire 5 day itinerary this July. One last question is that I have a flight out of Zurich to Prague on my last day that departs at 1235. I always like to be at the airport with my family of 7 (seven) including 3 children at least 2 hours before a flight. If my train arrives at 1016 at Zurich airport, do you think that is enough time to check in for our flight?

Thanks in advance

Hi edlr4ma,

Yes, that gives you a little over 2 hours for your check in - which should be just fine. Trains arriving at Zurich airport are right below the airport so it would take about 10 minutes to get to the check-in desk.

Maybe close. The number of people and the likely departure gate for an international flight would worry me. Terminal E requires some travel from the checkin site. That said, I am paranoid about being late, and I a party of one.
