Check with your travel agency. If you book online, try to contact the online company. Failing which, contact the airline(s) itself as they should be able to advise.

HTH.

Re: Transiting Flight in switzerland -- Do i require transit visa?

What is "Asian" passport?

Do you mean Mainland Chinese, Republic of China on Taiwan etc.

Normally "TWOV" Transit Without Visa rules are not strict in Switzerland - unlike the UK, where many countries' citizens still need a Visa just to transit the airport.

Note: by transit I mean "remain airside". No overnight stopover. No customs or immigration clearance.
