"SWISS FLY RAIL BAGGAGE COUPONS" Page 1, 2

Westbound flights

Fly Rail Baggage Coupons can also be used on many westbound flights. You can attach coupons to your luggage and check bags through to your North American gateway airport at 126 railroad stations in Switzerland. At 45 of those stations, you can even select your airline seat and get a boarding pass. (If you check your luggage at one of the 81 Fly Rail Baggage station that don't offer passenger check-in, just go to the special "Fly" counter at the airport to get your seat and boarding pass.)

Important:

  • The following airlines are not participants in the Fly Rail scheme for outbound flights from Zürich and Geneva Airports: KLM, SAS, Air France, Air Canada, Sabena, Balkan-Charter, and EasyJet. If you're flying from Zürich or Geneva on one of these airlines, you'll need to check in and check your luggage the traditional way.

  • If you're flying to the U.S. or Canada, be at the airport at least 90 minutes before departure to allow for security checks.

  • When your plane arrives in the U.S. or Canada, you'll have to claim your luggage and go through customs when your plane arrives in the U.S. or Canada, just as you normally would.
