SFO Lost and Found Department—All You Need To Know
Being the largest airport in the California Bay area, the San Francisco airport (SFO) serves around 35,000 people daily, and many of them lose something in the facility’s vicinity. If you are one of those people, don’t fret because you are likely to retrieve your lost item—be it your phone, wallet, or luggage—if you act quickly.
There are several ways to start the process of finding your lost item, depending on where you suspect the incident happened:
- On an airplane
- On the bus to the Long-Term Parking Lot or Rental Car Center
- Public areas of the San Francisco airport
- Security checkpoints
If you lost your item on an airplane while flying to or from the San Francisco airport, you will have to contact the airline you flew with. You can find the contact information for all SFO airlines on the airport’s website.
The SFO Shuttle Bus Company handles items left behind in its vehicles, and you can contact it by calling 415-915-9760.
