Federal President Guy Parmelin (SVP) made a “didactic tour” at Zurich Airport on Thursday. After the deserted audience went to the terrace, the canton of Zurich confronted them with their demands.
Check-in halls are still practically uninhabited. The noise of the aircraft could hardly be heard. Parmelin said in front of the media that he had an educational and interesting tour. The effects of the epidemic on the Canton of Zurich are considerable. “I and the Federal Council know very well that”.
The easement known on Wednesday is “a small improvement in the situation for Parmelin.” He is particularly looking forward to vaccination. “But we have to be careful.”
The “caution”, however, is not really the content of the demands that were presented to Parmelin by Zurich Airport, trade and tourism associations. Under the title “Back in the Air”, Zurich Airport formulated three measures, with which Switzerland should seek to “return to freedom of travel”.
The first requirement is the relaxation of travel restrictions between countries at similar risk of infection. The second is free travel for all passengers who have been negative, vaccinated or tested. A PCR test should no longer be required as evidence, a rapid antigen test should suffice. The third requirement is a digital vaccination certificate.
