At the end of September, an Airbus operated by Swiss International Airlines was approaching to land from Berlin when a drone appeared very close to the plane.

It’s being considered a serious risk. There were 108 passengers and crew aboard.

Zurich airport is renewing its calls for a drone ban near the airport as this is not the first time. It’s also demanding drone pilots have to be licenced.
