While New York City is home to three major airports, most flights to Zurich will depart from John F. Kennedy International Airport, located about seventeen miles from midtown Manhattan in Queens. If you drive to the airport, parking is available starting at $18 a day. The airport is also accessible by subway or bus for $2.25 a ride, and a taxi from midtown will cost $52 plus tolls and a tip. More than seventy airlines offer domestic and international flights to and from JFK, and the airport is home to a wide range of fast food, concessions, and sit-down dining options if you need to get a bite to eat before you go.
Your flight will land at Zurich Airport, located about six miles from the city in nearby Kloten. Five rental car companies maintain offices at the airport, including Avis and Hertz. Taxi service is available outside of arrivals, and you can also take advantage of affordable public buses, trams, or railways to reach the city center. Zurich’s weather is cool and wet throughout the year. Average highs in July, the warmest month of the year there, are about 75 degrees Fahrenheit, and lows in the coldest month, January, are about 25 degrees. Plan your trip between April and September to take advantage of warmer weather and more sunny days, but whenever you travel, be sure to bring warm clothes that you can easily layer and adequate rain gear. While you are in Zurich, hop on a train to reach nearby ski slopes, explore the history of the world’s favorite caffeinated beverage at the Jacob Coffee Museum, and, after dark, head out to explore the city’s vibrant club scene.
