Swiss is following in the footsteps of KLM and British Airways at Gatwick - from 1 September, passengers flying Swiss to or from Geneva will pay less if they do not have checked baggage.
Swiss will offer a new two-tier tariff structure for its Geneva services:
- Geneva Economy Flex - offers free baggage allowance of 1 x 23 kg and one piece of carry-on baggage (up to 8kg / max. 55 x 40 x 23 cm). Rebooking and cancellation allowed.
- Geneva Economy Light - allows for one piece of carry-on baggage (up to 8kg / max. 55 x 40 x 23 cm). No checked baggage is permitted (no free baggage allowance). No rebooking or cancellation allowed.
Lead-in fares from London Heathrow to Geneva are £61 one-way and £84 return for Economy Light. For Economy Flex the rates are £86 and £124.
