Bradley International Airport Offers a Mail-Back Program for Prohibited Items

For a $14 fee, the Paradies Shop in the pre-TSA screening area at Bradley can help you mail prohibited items to an address of your choosing in the U.S.. The service includes an address label, protective packaging and a stamp. The store provides same-day Postal Service pick-up. The store 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. Certain items, such as ammunition and blue-flame lighters for pipes, cannot be sent via mail and still will be confiscated by the TSA. Also, items considered to be fragile cannot be mailed through this service.
