I am flying ZRH-LYS-MRS. Switzerland is considered a "clean" country in aviation security terms, ie doesn't require security check before connecting to a Schengen flight, only passport.

I am not familiar with the layout of LYS: is it such that because I have to pass thru immigration I still have to go thru security?

Thanks for any hints from connaisseurs of LYS.

I can't answer specifically for the non-Schengen to Schengen, but since I was subjected to security when connecting in purely domestic flights, I can't see they would not do it for other connections...
