Lucerne is situated on the main route running from north to south and is connected with the Swiss railway network. Direct fast trains link Lucerne to the international airports in Zurich, Basel and Geneva.
You may buy your train ticket (for the same price) at every train station or from home and print it out: Just visit the timetable: http://fahrplan.sbb.ch/bin/query.exe/en?showAdvancedInput=1 and enter your details. Then you may choose a connection and buy the ticket. The ticket is not bound to the time (except if you buy a SuperSaver ticket). So if your plane is late you still may us the ticket.
Do not buy any round trip tickets. Those are only valid one day.
