Recover ‘seized’ flight items

The Connexion, Jun 28

Air passengers at Paris Charles de Gaulle are now able to recover objects seized at security that they could not take on the flight.

The airport and La Poste are testing a service called Tripperty that gives travellers the choice of depositing objects or sending them on.

One in eight passengers has to dump banned articles such as perfume, wine or a knife.

Now they can be sent on at a cost of €15 in France or €20 for Europe or you can pick them up on your return within 21 days for €10. Non recovered items are given to charity.
