New baggage pick-up service for SWISS customers

2012-07-20 — / — Travellers departing on SWISS from Zurich Airport can now have their baggage picked up from their home or hotel. The new service, which has already been introduced, promises sizeable time savings, as it eliminates the need to check in or hand in baggage on arrival at the airport.

The new baggage pick-up service has been introduced by SWISS in collaboration with Swissport, its ground handling partner, and is available to any customers departing from Zurich on a SWISS-operated flight. Travellers requesting the service will have their bags collected from their home or hotel and transported directly to their final air destination.
The service makes travelling with SWISS from Zurich an even pleasanter experience, by eliminating the need to check in or drop off baggage at the airport (along with any waiting this might entail). On arriving at Zurich Airport for their flight, users of the service can simply proceed straight to the security check and their departure gate.
The new baggage pick-up service, which is subject to flat fees, can be used from anywhere in Switzerland with immediate effect. The service is available up to 48 hours before scheduled departure, and can be booked when making the original flight reservation on or after the booking via
