I don't think there's an option to get your pass at the airport in Italy, but actually is easier than that: you can purchase everything you need from one website, both the Swiss Flexi Pass here
and the point to point tickets here
. They'll have your order ready for you at the People's Park Centre in Singapore (for free), or they can ship it to your home address. If they do offer collection at the airport you will see that while ordering, but I don't think so. Most long distance Italian trains require seat reservations. They'll be offered when you search for tickets through the link I just gave you. It's best to book such trains well in advance (from 60-90 days ahead), if possible. Don't forget to use the promo code
to get a discount!
Your pass can be validated by the conductor of the train bound for Switzerland. There's no need to get off the train for that. Your Swiss Flexi Pass offers free traveling from Domodossola in Italy (there's a downloadable map on the page Annika linked to). So you only need a ticket to Domodossola, not to Brig. Domodossola to Mürren is indeed free. Be sure to validate your pass before reaching Domodossola.
As for your outbound trip: again, no need to get off the train. Just show your Swiss Flexi Pass until Chiasso, and show your ticket afterwards.
Enjoy the trip!
