Zurich to St Anton 2019 Schedule

Our group of 6 have planned a late Jan 2019 holiday to St Anton. I checked with oebb and it looks like the 2019 schedule still haven't been released yet. Does anyone know when it will be released? Based on what I have read, I can just book our tickets at Zurich airport to St Anton when I arrive. Is this accurate, and where in the airport is the ticket counter?

thanks

mike

You can book online before you travel as well. There is no need to book now. Check two months before.

The rail timetable 2019, whose beginning will be in the middle of December 2018 though, will be released in fall, so check again in late October or at the beginning of November.

It is not necessary to buy tickets in advance, just be aware that you have to pay the full fare, if you buy at the train station just before you go.

@ Michael K

Yes, this sounds most practicable.

If you miss your train, then you pay 19€ + 75€.

It is necessary to assess the risks involved and the comfort & convenience wanted. If you want to save on the ticket price, then you should at least plan some reserve time between the scheduled arrival time of the plane and the scheduled departure time of the train, to cover for possible delays.

But if the flight arrives on time or even early, then you have to kill time, what some travelers do not like. And because of that they are willing to pay more in order to get to their destination as quickly as possible.

Personally, I would buy in advance, because I am willing to accept some "discomfort" for a lower price.

So the schedule is out for the Jan 2019 dates. My flight arrives in Zurich at 11:40. The 14:40 train from Zurich HB looks to be the most logical choice. Its 19 Euro if I buy now or 50 Euro for the flexible ticket. There are 6 of us, so I am inclined to purchase the tickets prior to arrival for the discounted fair and hope for the best.

Are the tickets to/from the airport to Zurich HB for specific times? Or are they general tickets for the next available train? I will probably want to buy the tickets back to the airport from Zurich HB ahead of time.

Anyone try the 1st class upgrade (+10E) or Business (+25E)? Is it worth it?

A transition time of three hours certainly is very sufficient, usual delays can be easily covered with that amount of time.

The use of local trains that "feed" to national and international express trains normally is more flexible, meaning you may also use earler trains than the one that has been selected during booking.
