Bradley International Airport Offers a Mail-Back Program for Prohibited Items
For a $5 fee, any of the Paradise Shops at Bradley is offering a mailing box with an address label, protective packaging and a $3.85 stamp and will also give passengers a receipt letting them return to the head of the security line. Items weighing as much as a pound can be sent. The stores provide same-day Postal Service pickup.

Certain items, such as ammunition and blue-flame lighters for pipes, cannot be sent via mail and still will be confiscated.
