About Zürich Airport and Reasons for flight delays or cancellation at the Airport
Zurich Airport which is also known as Kloten Airport is the largest international airport of Switzerland and the principal hub for Swiss international airlines. The airport is used by more than 25 million passengers annually. Unfortunately, flight delays and cancellations are not a rarity at Zurich airport. Tight financial planning by airlines has led to a decrease in efficiency which in turn has led to high number of delays and cancellation of flights. Other factors that can affect flight operations are Illness of a crew member, bad weather or technical defects.
What you can do while waiting.
You can decide to have a cup of coffee while waiting but it is recommended that you get the flight delay or cancellation documented. The airlines have forms for this. Kindly ensure that the reason(s) for the flight delay or cancellation is clearly stated. You can also take photos of the display screen showing deferrals or rescission of flights. This will go a long way in ensuring that you get compensated.
Your Rights as an air-passenger.
The European Passenger Rights Regulation has made it possible for air-passengers to lay claims. The regulation still holds inasmuch as Zurich airport is not within the Eu. The amount payable is solely dependent on the flight distance and not the ticket price. In the event of a flight cancellation, you are entitled to a claim if the airline has not informed you at least 14 days before scheduled departure date. You are also entitled to claims if your flight has been delayed for at least 3 hours. Please bear in mind that there are some exceptional cases where the airline cannot be held responsible for either a delay or a cancellation. Such cases include storms or strikes.
