Sometimes, you just need to drop a letter into the post.

  • Are you rushing to the airport and need to put a check in the mail?
  • Did you write to a friend while on the plane?
  • Do you have a long layover and write to a friend?
  • Did you forget to drop those vacation postcards into the mail?
  • How about those birthday or holiday cards?

Never fear – this site’s dedicated to you.

If you need to put something in the mail, but can’t find where to do it – here’s the place to look for those hidden drop boxes and post offices that are near or at the airport.

What’s New

Last updated on 13 October 2018.

All e-mailed and postcard submissions have been processed and updated as of the last update date.

13 October minor updates:

  • Central America and the Caribbean are filled in but I haven’t found much – only Mexico City, Barbados, and Nassau. Airport sites are scarce and Google Maps information is extremely limited if it is available. I can definitely use some assistance!

  • Little Rock (LIT) updated for collection times.

27 August major updates:

  • Dublin (DUB), College Station (CLL), Missoula (MSO) and San Antonio (SAT) have been added.
  • Columbia, SC (CAE) has changed the location of their mail drop.
  • Kansas City (MCI) is confirmed not have a mailbox drop.

19 August major updates:

  • Charlotte (CLT) has lost their drop box.
  • The drop boxes at Chicago Midway (MDW) have been located more accurately based on a couple of submissions.
  • Houston Hobby and Bush (HOU/IAH respectively) are updated.
  • DC airports (DCA and IAD) and Oakland (OAK) have pages!
  • On a newly added page, I may or may not have issued a postcard challenge….


  • Research Moscow airports; see if I can find any information around Vienna.
  • Next up: South America, then Middle East/Indian Subcontinent
  • I have a couple of blog posts I’m working on, but will take suggestions via e-mail or by post!
