Yes guys, RJ100 is right with those 250 CHF for a badge. But this airport called "Unique" is in fact "unique".
They face several problems:
as their main customer with still a future which is already safer than it was but not really known yet
-Big competition from real hubs around as MUC
-Due to it's runway system limited capacity
-Huge noise problems, on one side with the German neighbors resulting in approach restrictions early morning, late night and weekends and on the other side with the Swiss neighbor's who don't want the noise either. Actually they face an interpelation the Citizens of the Canton of Zürich need to vote about in the near future, limiting them to 250'000 movements yearly and a 9 (!!!) hours night-ban!
So you see, ZRH
airport operator Unique has problems on all sides and they have nothing better to do than to chase potential investors away with this absolutely overpriced politics of business they do. Quo vadis....... ?
Such evolutions are not good at all and show us a kind of arrogance the responsible management has in it's attitude. I just hope they will be replaced before it's going to be to late. At least BSL
airport will have it's benefit of it. They lost their main operator Crossair as well and had a huge expansion in progress. But they realized the situation and attracted other operators. They are on the good way as GVA
is and most important: They are in the favor of the passengers around Switzerland.
