MFGZ Handling at Zurich Airport

We offer a low-cost solution for the compulsory handling for general aviation customers at Zurich Airport.

Our handling service for private aircraft is the perfect solution for aircraft owners and companies with a low volume of passengers e.g. turboprop aircraft like PC 12, Beach King Air, TBM, Piper Cayenne & Meridian or small busines jets and helicopters.

For private or training flights we offer a finely graded tarif chart, tailored to the special requirements of general aviation.

Jets & Turboprops

We support crews and dispatchers in implementing flights to Zurich. This comes with a wide range of useful extra services. 

Piston Aircraft

We provide compulsory transfer for pilots of small motorised aircraft at low rates. We are aware of the reduced requirements of general aviation and act as the first contact for VFR flight crews.

Taxis are only available at the GAC if ordered in advance. Please inform us of your intentions after landing so we can give you the very best assistance. 

If you wish to use public transport the tram station Zurich Flughafen Fracht  is only a five-minute walk from the GAC. You can buy a ticket at the vending machine located at the station.
