• Second piece within the same weight & dimensions: USD/CAD50 (CHF60; EUR40)
• Third & more within the same weight & dimensions: USD/CAD200 (CHF250; EUR150)
The fee for the second piece of baggage can be paid via the SWISS website, or at the SWISS ticket counter at the airport.
The free baggage allowance for SWISS First and SWISS Business guests as well as for Miles & More status passengers (HON Circle, Senator, Frequent Traveller, and Star Alliance Gold members) remains unchanged.
