When I can I always fly from Basel. It is my favorite airport in Switzerland. Even if in Zurich’s airport there is more choice of shops (there is life saver Migros too), cafes (yes, there is a Starbucks) bars and restaurants, the Basel airport has something, a sort of undeniable poetic quality. Maybe because it is between three countries, maybe for the beautiful Tinguely in the hall. Beautiful and very patriotic, with its Swiss flag.
