Travel to your destination in Switzerland without the hassle of your luggage.
Passengers can check–in their luggage from O.R Tambo International airport and it can be delivered to one of 17 major stations in Switzerland.
Luggage will be sent directly to the nearest railway station at their end destination in Switzerland via Zurich airport.
This allows you to fly to Switzerland, spend the day sightseeing and then take a train to the last destination of the day and collect your luggage.
Note: After 31 October 2018, same-day service to a rail station will be discontinued.
Baggage should not contain any items bought abroad especially alcohol, tobacco goods (including duty free quantities), new clothes, drugs and firearms, bulky items such as bicycles and surf boards and may not contain anything that has to be declared. Random checks are done.

The Express Flight Luggage will be booked at the time of booking your rail tickets. Cost is charged per piece of luggage.
Each piece of luggage will have two different coupons:
• Customs declaration – to be attached before checking in luggage. This will be completed and signed by passengers. The destination code and station will be filled in. The declaration and the voucher will then be inserted into the plastic cover tag, which will then be attached to the baggage.
• Receipt to collect luggage – The receipt must provide the same information as the destination tag. The passenger will hand in the receipt at the destination station to be able to collect their baggage in Switzerland.
