Whether you're on holiday or a business trip, you can now hand your luggage in the day before your flight at the railway station and pick it up from the SBB "Bag drop counter" at Zurich Airport. You can pick your luggage up as early as 04.30 hours, so passengers with an early flight can check in on time.
Around 160 Swiss railway stations provide this service, as do all BLS Travel Centres (without point of sale).
Thanks to the "Door to foreign airport with check-in" service, you can have your luggage picked up from home and pick it up at your destination airport abroad. This service is offered for airline companies SWISS and Edelweiss.
