The arrival of Air Force One carrying President Trump will not go unnoticed at Zurich Airport, tomorrow 21 January. President Trump will visit the yearly World Economic Forum in Davos, located in the Eastern Alps region of Switzerland.
Air Force One’s arrival is expected on Zurich’s runway 16 between 08:00 and 10:00 (UTC +1). For the occasion, Zurich Airport will open the spotters terrace already from 07:00. President Trump is set to depart again early Wednesday afternoon.

The spokesman made no further comment on the role Trump’s staff would play during the landing and departure of the US president, who last visited Davos back in 2018.
