The Airport Zurich (formerly Zurich-Kloten) is the main airport of Switzerland. Situated approx. 13 km from the city center it has three runways with two of them crossing each other.

Awards / Reviews:
Conclusion by simFlight.com: "When you hear that Aerosoft have released a new airport it is a pretty safe bet that it will be worth getting. Zurich 2012 deserves to be recognized as another one in that category. There are minor problems but the airport is detailed, it is interesting and can offer the airline pilot or the casual flyer a location that will give them many hours of enjoyable flying."
Conclusion by AirdailyX: "Aerosoft Zurich is a really performing Mega airport, not a complex one like Munich but an effective one in term of quality and framerate. One regret though, the price (25 euros), is a bit expensive, considering that this is just the third scenery on Zurich...in four years."
