Air transport from one country to another of a deceased person requires formalities and is subject to specific conditions.
For any questions relating to this topic, please contact the Customs service or use a forwarder specialising in this type of transport:
When sending your package or your personal effects, a document (called Air Way Bill [AWB] and bearing a number) was delivered to you by the airline or the forwarder.
If you have entrusted your shipment to a forwarder, please contact it by indicating the AWB number.
If you have not used the services of a forwarder, contact the handling agent of the company transporting your goods.
To independently pick up your shipment from the freight hall, you must first perform the import customs formalities (Customs contact), then go with your AWB to the handling agent representing the company that transported your goods. Two handling agents operate at Genève Aéroport, Swissport and Dnata, representing the airlines.
The procedures are different depending on where the item was lost. The various contacts are here below. You have forgotten or lost something:

When you board your flight from Genève Aéroport, you use infrastructure, equipment and services that require ongoing investments and operating costs. These costs are covered by the passenger charge, and from commercial income.
The passenger charge is shown in the "taxes" box of the air ticket and, for Genève Aéroport, is CHF 23.75, applicable to departures only. It includes the costs of security screening (screening of passengers and hand baggage on boarding and screening of all hold baggage), which account for about 50% of the fee. The other half goes to fund the arrivals and departures halls, waiting and boarding lounges and, more generally, all the facilities directly used by passengers, and also assistance to those with limited mobility.
Any other amounts included in the "taxes" that may be shown on your ticket or invoice do not relate to Genève Aéroport, where the passenger charge is considerably lower than corresponding charges at other airports in Switzerland.
