Munich to Zurich: Low Cost Carrier?

Help! Friend is flying on an award ticket with American. We'll be in Munich, but only routing made available to him was to leave from Zurich back to the States. Besides the train, does anyone know of any low-cost flights for Munich-Zurich? I've only found expensive Lufthansa... Any tips appreciated!

Hi Andeesue,

According to www.whichbudget.com, both Easyjet and Hapagfly run from Munich to Basel, but that's the closest connection I could find. At Basel, he can take a bus to the train station then the Zurich airport is about an hour. If he has an extra night, he could stay overnight in Basel, then take a direct train to the Zurich airport.

Good luck to him.

Thanks for the tip. Friend says he flies so much, that he is looking forward to the train for a change!

He could take the train to Nuremburg, and then fly Lufthansa to Zurich from there. Got a great 39EU r/t for Dec. that we will use for only one way.

If he is willing to leave Munich a little after 7 in the morning he can be at the Zurich airport before noon and with no changes, no waits for airline security, no arrivals two hours before flight time, and no luggage weight restrictions.
