Lindbergh Field to bring back free post-security gift wrapping for travelers

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego International Airport officials Friday announced the return of a complimentary gift-wrapping service for the fourth consecutive year.

Volunteers and Airport Authority staffers will operate four post-security gift-wrapping stations between 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. set to begin Wednesday and run through Dec. 23, according to an airport spokeswoman.

The Airport Authority's gift wrap features artwork created by students who participated in the New Children's Museum's after school program, she said.

The service will be available to ticketed passengers to spread holiday cheer and reduce stress during the busy holiday travel season, she said.

The service can also speed up time spent at security checkpoints as the Transportation Security Administration recommended passengers wrap gifts after their flight or ship them ahead of time to avoid the possibility of having to open them during the screening process.

Last year, 56 staffers and volunteers donated 227 hours to wrap more than 2,000 gifts, the spokeswoman said.
