Use of defibrillators and where to find them at the airport.

logo Defibrillators

In Switzerland, a cardiac arrest takes place every one to two hours. Only 20% of victims are resuscitated by a third party before the arrival of the ambulance. Yet, every second counts: the brain lesions start four minutes after the cardiac arrest, and every minute we lose 10% chance of survival. They become irreversible after ten minutes.

Simple to use, defibrillators greatly increase the chances of survival for people with cardiac arrest. However, it is essential to use them very quickly. No specialised knowledge is required to use a modern defibrillator. So, feel free to use it.

Partial reopening of shops and restaurants

Following the Confederation's decision on the reopening of shops from 11 May, some terminal sales outlets will be able to gradually welcome customers again.

The opening hours can be modified. We invite you to contact the sales outlets directly.
