Civil aviation – in brief

The publication "Swiss civil aviation 2017" presents the most important data on civil aviation in Switzerland: ranging from airport infrastructure to the number of flight movements and passengers up to accidents.

Here you can find detailed and pooled data on public transport and civil aviation as a cross-sectional topics.

Public transport and civil air transport figures can be found in various areas within the FSO topic "Mobility and transport" (e.g. costs, transport performance or accidents).
