The brother of a slain gangland kingpin has been charged over the shooting murder of another man.

A man will appear in court after being arrested at Sydney airport over a gangland shooting death at a southwest Sydney panel beater last year.

The 34-year-old was picked up by NSW homicide squad detectives on Monday night after arriving from an international flight.

Early on Tuesday morning police said they had charged the man and he was due to appear in Waverley Local Court later in the day.

Media reports have named him as Mahmoud Ahmad, the brother of slain gangland figure Walid Ahmad.

He was arrested in relation to the murder of Safwan Charbaji, 32, who was fatally wounded outside a Condell Park smash repair business in April 2016.

That was linked to the murder of the older Ahmad, 40, who was killed in a spray of bullets on the rooftop car park of Bankstown Central shopping centre weeks later.
