MFGZ Handling at Zurich Airport

We offer a low-cost compulsory handling for general aviation customers.

Our handling service for private aircraft is the perfect solution for aircraft owners and companies with a low volume of passengers eg turboprop flights 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

Without exclusive luxury service, we support crews and dispatchers in implementing flights to Zurich, together with a wide range of useful extra services. 

Piston Aircraft

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


Arrivals per helicopter are generally allocated to the Helipad West. We service the remote heliport, providing transfer to the general aviation building, with particularly low-tarif conditions for training flights.
