Thanks to its popularity as a premier destination, the country is well connected with the rest of the world via air. From India, one of the easiest ways to reach Switzerland is by taking a flight from one of the major Indian cities. There are flights from New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bengaluru and Kochi to Switzerland all operating at different flight durations and prices respectively. Being a landlocked region, you cannot reach Switzerland by sea or any other mode of transportation apart from flights.
There are three major international airports in Switzerland, providing global connectivity to travelers from around the world – Zurich, Geneva and Basel. Besides, there are airports in cities like Lugano and Bern as well. Those coming in tour packages mostly enter France or Germany and take the road to enter Switzerland. However, if you are visiting only Switzerland, you can enter the country through the international airports, where frequent flights from India are aplenty and you can reach the destination as early as 7 hours (at nonstop more expensive flights). Though there are other international airports, it is best if you land in Zurich and then visit other places in your itinerary. Also, the place and duration of transit can depend on the airlines you choose and the route it takes. Some of the common transit airports are Dubai International Airport, Heathrow International Airport, France and Muscat.
Switzerland flights are also one of the most expensive flights in the world, where the prices tend to shoot further during the seasons like spring and winter. The tourism board really encourages travelers to book their tickets in advance to prevent running out of flights and even accommodation for that matter. So if you are planning a trip to Switzerland soon, here are details on how much time it would take to reach from the major Indian cities and the approximate flight charges per person.
