Banned Items Have Way to Get Home: Orlando Kiosks Allow Fliers to Mail Objects

CheckPoint Mailers Inc. installed two mailboxlike kiosks at each of Orlando International Airport's two security lines late last year. For a minimum of $9, the company will pack and mail the prohibited item to your home.


About 615,000 people passed through the airport last year. Spokesman Steve Cooke said the airport would continue footing the bill on its own rather than turn the service over to a private company that charges.

"People love it," he said.
