Meeting Up at Milan's MXP Airport

Jump to last reply

For our trip to Europe, my friend and I both will be arriving into MXP from Zurich at the exact same time. But the kicker is that we'll both be flying on different airlines. He's flying on United and I'm flying on Swiss International Air Lines/Swiss European Air Lines.

My question is two parts:

1. We're flying from the US and have a layover in Zurich. Since Switzerland is not part of the EU, will we have to go through customs twice? Or do we go through customs just once in Zurich or Milan?

2. Where would be the best way for us to meet up at the airport? If we have to go through customs in Milan, would it be better for us to wait for each other right after passing through customs? Or would it be better to meet up at baggage claim? And for those two airlines, would we be in the same baggage claim area?
