Express flight luggage.

Please note:

  • Please bring your flight confirmation (reservation or ticket number) with you to the station.
  • Check-in at the station is available for flights operated by SWISS (LX), Lufthansa (LH) and Austrian (OS).
    Due to technical modifications, check-in at the station is currently unavailable for Edelweiss flights. As an alternative, please use the door-to-door flight luggage service or flight luggage (Switzerland–another country) without check-in option.

As a Swiss, Lufthansa or Austrian customer, you can register your flight luggage at one of 35 stations with flight luggage shipping facilities by 7 p.m. on the day before your flight and collect it directly from your destination airport abroad – you can even check-in at the station. If you are flying with another airline, you can collect your luggage from the SBB airport counter in Zurich or Geneva on the day of your flight when the counter is open. Your luggage can also be shipped to any other station when it is transported back to Switzerland.
