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).
    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 customer of Swiss 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 at your destination airport abroad – and at the same time check in for your flight 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 during opening hours, anytime from early morning on. Your luggage can also be shipped to any other station when it is transported back to Switzerland.
