    SWISS airlines has recently opened a new Dock B at Zurich Airport. SWISS premium customers transiting via Zurich, can enjoy the new dock’s non-Schengen zone which includes the advanced new Lounge D, and for all inbound Business Class customers, whose flights are not assigned a dock stand, SWISS is introducing a new and exclusive bus service from the aircraft., according to a release.

    Passengers transiting via Zurich, who do not hold a Schengen visa, can take advantage of the new SWISS Lounge D. The advanced new lounge is just beyond the passport check and is close to the Dock B gates. Extending over 650 square metres, the lounge offers visitors ample opportunity to work or rest.

    This would be an excellent opportunity to take advantage of, however customers in First Class in transit will need to clear Schengen to use the FCL.

    Depending on how long your layover is, I wouldn't recommende bothering with clearing Schengen just to go to the FCL- it is a nice lounge however not that different from the new Swiss Lounge D.

    Of course as the posting mentions- some travellers don't have a Schengen visa in which case it is really very good to have this new option.

    Lastly- the bus is a great addition. No more waiting on a freezing bus for the ride to the terminal. Way to go on this innovation LX!
