Lost Property FAQ's
Skybreak provide lost property solutions for passengers arriving into Gatwick on flights operated by our airlines clients who have left items onboard the aircraft. If you have a question regarding our Lost Property service then hopefully you can find the answer from our FAQ's below.

All the items found are logged in our lost and found system by category and with full descriptions. This information is then matched with the information provided by you, so the more details you can provide the quicker it is to match your item accurately.
The items collected from the aircraft are passed to our secure offices in weekly collections. Depending on the details we hold on items, once received they can be matched within 48hrs.
We will contact you when you first log your item as missing to confirm receipt of your enquiry. If your item is found in the next collection you will then be contacted again to confirm the item matched is yours.
As we sort, process and store many items we will keep your enquiry open for a minimum of 30 days to maximise the opportunity to match your item.
As soon as you have logged an item our system will generate an email confirmation to you. If you do not receive this, please check your junk folder. The email will show as sent from lostandfound.
