Zurich Community Meetup 2023

Welcome to the next in-person Infinite Flight Community Meet-Up at Zurich Airport! On Saturday, April 22nd, 2023, we will gather together at Observation Deck B for the entire day, where we’ll have the opportunity to admire the beauty of planes taking off and landing. Whether you’re an aspiring pilot, Infinite Flight enthusiast, seasoned spotter or completely new to the hobby, we guarantee that you’ll have an incredible time meeting like-minded individuals and sharing your passion for aviation. If you’re interested in joining us for this exciting event, please read on for more information on how to get involved!

Date & Time

We will be at Zurich Airport between 12pm to 6pm CEST. The meet-up time frame is listed below!



Meeting Point

Our meeting point at the beginning of the day will be next to the information desk located on level two of the airport. We will arrive here approximately 30 minutes before the meet-up begins where we’ll wait for you all to arrive.

Note that we will only wait here for 30 minutes before making our way to check-in 2 where we’ll obtain our passes to enter the observation deck. Oh, by the way, anyone who meets us at the meeting point will get free entry on us… Just saying.

If you didn’t quite make it in time to the meeting point, the entry prices to the deck are:

  • Adult: 5 CHF
  • Youths aged 10-16: 2 CHF
  • Children under 10: FREE
  • Passengers with a valid boarding pass on day of departure/arrival: FREE
  • Holders of the disability insurance (DI) certificate: FREE

Observation Deck B

Well, there’s not much to explain here other than this is where we will all hang out for the day! This observation deck offers a stunning view of the airport and ramp areas below where you’ll be able to watch all of the airside operations action live. It doesn’t get much better than that! From baggage handling to planes rotating on their way to somewhere nice. This is definitely the place to be…

Note: you can exit the observation deck and re-enter whenever you wish. If you do exit, you’ll be required to hand in your old entry pass in exchange for a new one.

Preparation & Security

Before setting off on your journey to Zurich Airport it’s important to ensure that you’re we’ll equipped for the full day out. So, before you leave, be sure to double check if you packed your camera and other essentials such as snacks! We also recommend bringing a rain jacket just in case it starts raining despite the fact that the deck has shelter.
Aside from that, you will be required to pass through airport security in order to gain access to the observation deck. Please ensure that you don’t pack anything that might not make it through security with you. All attendees will undergo the same security screening that a passenger travelling on holiday would. We would also recommend that bringing a form of ID just incase a member of staff at the airport asks for it.

Airport Facilities

You know the saying “the world is your oyster?” Well, the airport is your oyster. Fortunately, there are very many facilities around for us all!

There’s plenty of parking available for those on the road. In terms of toilets, these can be found all around the airport and the observation deck. As far as it goes for food and drink, there are plenty of options around, one of the most convenient being the Restaurant Aviolino located within observation deck B. There are also vending machines scattered around incase you fancy a quick snack. If you wish to grab food and drink elsewhere then you are more than welcome to do so. There are plenty of options outside of the observation deck such as, KFC, McDonalds, Pret A Manger and more…

I’ll see you there! At least this time I don’t have to fly to the meetup 😂


Haha yup! Other way around this time


Let’s hope no one here is in this category 🤣


Haha 😆 Under 16s should be accompanied by an adult


This event sounds amazing! Unfortunately I won’t be able to make it to Zurich for this one, but if there’s one in the US in the future, I’d love to attend! :)


We’ll be hosting a small meet-up when we attend flight sim expo later this year!


If only the tickets from Vilnius to Zurich didn’t cost 500 euros round trip for 2 persons.
