Zurich Airport to Zurich HB using the Swiss Pass

We have a Swiss card and will be using to to go from Zurich to Lucerne, then from Interlaken back to Zurich. However, we will fly into Zurich airport and need to get to Zurich HB to start our journey. Can we activate our Swiss Card at the airport and, if so, is the short train ride to the Zurich HB included as part of the "first leg" of our trip from Zurich to Lucerne?

    Hi Danielle,

    Yes, you can validate your Swiss Card at the rail station for the Zurich Airport before you board. There are actually direct trains from the Zurich Airport to Lucerne, which depart about once every hour and take an hour in duration. Your Swiss Card would be valid on these or the connections that involve going from the airport into Zurich HB first, before continuing on to Lucerne.
