Lower rates on a second baggage item

On some routes, Economy Class gives you the added benefits of lower rates on a second item of baggage (23 kg, max. circumference 158 cm). Book your additional baggage online up to 4 days before departure. You can also pay the charge when you book or when you check-in.

The lower rates only apply for the second baggage item. For any additionally checked bag the reduced rate is obsolete and the normal Edelweiss excess baggage rate applies. You can benefit on the following routes:

  Price per leg
Flights to / from USA, Canada and South Africa Price per leg CHF 100.-

Variations for codeshare and interline flights from / to the USA

Other charges may also arise for optional services, for instance for excess baggage. This is due to the differing charges by the various airlines involved.

Please note:

Any items of baggage weighing more than 32 kg will not be processed at the desk, but need to be checked in separately as bulky cargo.
