A man from Fribourg was chosen when he checked in to fly to Vienna. He and his wife were given free access to the VIP lounge.

Traffic in Zurich continues to grow – last year 29.4 million passed through.

Even with 30m passengers – Zurich doesn’t even get near to the top 50 busiest airports in the world.

Top spot goes to Atlanta with 104m. Heathrow is 7th with 78m and 50th is Moscow with 40m.
