Incheon International Airport is offering a simpler and more affordable way for passengers to ship or store any items not permissible in the cabin that they neglect to check in at ticket counters.

The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transportation said on Monday that the new service is available from Tuesday.

The airport has set up desks facilitating the service in the departure area. Passengers can pay W3,000 per day to store the items until they return, or ship them to a requested address (US$1=W1,121).

“It was possible to store or ship prohibited items at the airport before, but it was inconvenient and expensive to use. An average of 120 people a day opted to throw away the items, including expensive cosmetic products, rather than use the service,” an airport official said.
