Passenger numbers at Swiss airports are steadily recovering, but according to figures from the Federal Office of Civil Aviation, the level before the pandemic was not reached again in July, August and September.

In the third quarter of 2022, Swiss airports recorded a total of 13,7 million arriving and departing passengers (local and transfer passengers) in scheduled and charter traffic. This is 5,3 million passengers or 62 percent more than in the same months last year, but still 18 percent less than in 2019, the year before the start of the Covid 19 pandemic. This is reported by the Swiss travel portal About Travel. The number of flight movements also increased in the third quarter of 2022 compared to 2021, by 43 percent to 104.000.
