TRAVELLERS forced to leave behind items they cannot carry on board flights, like bottles of liquor and perfume as well as scissors and blades, will soon be able to save their stuff from being dumped.

The Straits Times understands that Changi Airport Group and SingPost are starting up a new initiative for passengers to post the items, which are banned for security reasons and which will otherwise be confiscated by the authorities and eventually destroyed.

The postal service is believed to be among the first such initiatives at a major airport worldwide.
