On milesopedia, we have a history of reporting on airport lounges. The “Family Services” lounge at Zurich Airport is different from other lounges: here, it is not champagne or petits fours that will make us happy during a stopover… but rather diaper-changing tables and construction games!
A lounge designed to improve the comfort of families
There are 2 Family Services lounges: at terminals A and E. Here we present the one in A.
Ideally located, this “Family Services” salon is a haven of peace for families, especially in the early hours of the day. It is open from 06:30 to 22:00.
As soon as we arrive, a person introduces us to the place and offers to assist us if necessary.
This is especially useful for a person traveling alone with a child, even if it’s just to go to the bathroom! However, there is no daycare service (don’t expect to drop your kids off to go shopping in the airport!)
Numerous changing tables are available with wipes and sinks.
Also, a microwave and hotplates help in the preparation of meals. There are also many kitchen utensils and a bottle warmer.
A rest room for the little ones
This room can be very useful if your stopover is long! It can accommodate up to 3 toddlers and an adult.
Toilets even for children
Near the reception area, there is a toilet that can also be used by children thanks to adapted seats.
Games for all ages
And of course, games for all ages are plentiful throughout the show.
Every time I pass by I have fun taking pictures of my daughter in the rocking plane!
When we fly to Nice from Montreal, we always have a 2-hour stopover in Zurich. That’s more than enough time for our kids to play in this lounge for 1 hour, and spend the rest of the time having our lunch together in the Swiss lounge!
