ZRH - Concourse A [Reconstruction]

Nice documentary report on the new concourse A at ZRH. Unfortunately available in German only but nice to watch anyway...

Intersting. They go in a lot of detail. Any word on a completion date or if this is pushed back? Mind you it would be easier to build with less air traffic...

Very interesting indeed.

Highlights:

- New Dock A will be able to handle schengen and nonschengen flights
- New Dock A will be able to handle up to 8 widebodies (Code E aircraft) on its north side
- New parking positions (5x Code C (narrowbodies)) between Dock A and B
- New taxiway allowing simultaneous operations
- Connected underground (passport control)
- Bus gates on level 0

Total increase of jetbridges will be +3:
Currently 10 on north side of Dock A, after construction 12
Currently 7 on south side of Dock A, after construction 8.

Dock B will not have Code E gates to the north anymore due to space, so will be able to accomodate 6 Code C aircraft.
