Airports around the world, wherever SWISS flies, have at least one SWISS check-in counter.

You can operate the kiosk machine kept at the airport for checking in. You need to have passport number, ticket number or the “Miles&More” card to log in to your account. Thereafter, you have to select your preferred seat. Then you can do check-in of 8 people maximum. You are also required to print your boarding pass and baggage tags.

SWISS Air Mobile Check-in also happens the same way as online check-in except that it is done through mobile device.
The eboarding pass can be had in the email, as a SMS link or in the SWISS mobile app. This is valid at some airports but might not be valid for certain other airports of the world. You need to check whether eboarding pass is valid document for a particular airport or not.
