As this is the world’s capital of fashion, there are plenty of places to shop till you drop (or at least until your flight to Zurich is called). Bulgari, Hermès, and Gucci all have shops in Terminal 1 while Hugo Boss, Longchamp, and Michael Kors have stores in Terminal 2F. Both terminals have plenty of places to grab a coffee and a croissant. Terminal 1 has a Caffè Ritazza as well as Brioche Dorée while Terminal 2F’s selection includes coffee shops Columbus Café and Illy Café. Free ad-supported Wi-Fi is available in both terminals.

The railway station is located in the underground section of the shopping centre opposite Arrivals. Taxis are also available, ideal for those travelling with a lot of luggage. Official taxis are marked with an illuminated 'Airport Taxi' sign. You’ll find taxi ranks outside Arrivals 1 and 2. Car hire at Zurich Airport is another option. Switzerland is a relatively small country geographically, and with a car you can see plenty of it.
Try to arrive at the airport at least two hours before your flight to Zurich is due to depart. As both France and Switzerland are within the Schengen Area, you may not need a passport to travel between the two countries. You may be asked to show some photographic ID so we recommend bringing your passport anyway.
