SWISS introduces print-at-home baggage tags


Travellers departing Zurich on SWISS International Air Lines who check in online can now print out not only their boarding pass, but also the tags for their registered baggage at home.

The print-at-home baggage tag option is available for any SWISS flight from Zurich, including onward connections (but excluding codeshare flights). All existing baggage allowances remain unchanged.

The new facility enables the traveller to print out up to four baggage tags during the web check-in process. Tags are produced in A4 format, and can then be folded and inserted into a transparent plastic pouch attached to the bag. The pouches are available free of charge at any SWISS airport desk, and can be re-used for all future flights. On arrival at the airport, the registered and tagged baggage can then be handed in either at the self-service bag drop machine, where available, or at any staffed bag drop desk.

The service has also been opened to inbound SWISS flights from New York and Moscow. Other U.S. and European Union departure points will soon offer this facility.

The print-at-home baggage tag option has been offered at Geneva since 18 August. The facility is currently available for all SWISS flights from Geneva, and for selected inbound flights to Geneva from points including New York JFK, Pristina, Marrakech, Skopje and Moscow.
