Hundreds of passengers suffered long queues at Zurich airport yesterday for the first flights to the United States.
Passengers told the press there was confusion and it was taking around 8 minutes per passenger to check the paperwork for entry into the US.
Airlines and travel agents say there’s strong interest in travel to the United States before Christmas – specially to find the sun in Florida or shopping in New York.
Some criticized the airport for not being better prepared. The re-opening date for the US has been known for more than a month.
Trans-Atlantic passengers are being advised to arrive at the airport in good time.
