As a customer of Swiss, Edelweiss and Air Berlin Group (Air Berlin, Belair, Niki), you can have your flight luggage picked up from your address in one of two time windows on the evening before your journey and collect it directly from your destination airport. We will also check you in and bring your boarding card when we pick up your luggage. If you are flying with another airline, you can collect your luggage from the SBB airport counter in Zurich or Geneva from 6 a.m. on the day of your flight. Your luggage can also be shipped back to Switzerland from another country for all flights on a given day and delivered in two time windows (12 p.m.–6 p.m. and 6 p.m.–11 p.m.) on the next day.
