Swiss Expand Air-Rail Luggage Links

April 15, 2001

U.S. visitors to Switzerland who plan to arrive by air, then tour by rail can arrange to check luggage through to the train without having to pick it up at the airport. The Fly Rail Baggage Coupons must be bought from Rail Europe before departure from the U.S.; the charge is $15 per piece of luggage. The service can be applied to any airline from the U.S. to Switzerland.

Checking bags from train to plane on the return trip is more restricted: It is available only to people flying on non-U.S. airlines because of U.S. Customs regulations, a Rail Europe spokeswoman said. Tel. (888) 382-7245, http://www.raileurope.com.
