It depends what train you are taking. The train will stop briefly but you should not normally have to change trains. You have a ticket and seat reservation from the Swiss border to Milan right? The Swiss Travel Pass will only cover you up to the border.

Hi Bhaverhals,

Yes, you'll want a ticket/reservation from the Swiss-Italian border town (whichever that is for your trip) to Milan airport.

You can see what train or bus you need to take with the Swiss Railways timetable.
