If a prohibited item is found at Pre-Board Screening, passengers may request the use of the "Mail-It-Home" Program. Upon request, a C.A.T.S.A. employee will escort the passenger to the "Mail-It-Home" desk, where the prohibited item will be surrendered to a Security Guard. The passenger may then purchase a pre-stamped "Mail-It-Home" envelope for $5.00, address the envelope, and return it to the guard. The guard will then place the prohibited item in the envelope, seal it, and deposit it in the Canada Post mailbox located in the main terminal.

Community Showcase Opportunities
The Saskatoon Airport Authority is committed to making the Saskatoon John G. Diefenbaker International Airport a venue that showcases the community of Saskatoon and Saskatchewan. Since the Saskatoon John G. Diefenbaker International Airport is the first and last place that visitor's see when they arrive and depart from our city, it is important that the community leave a memorable impression.
It is envisioned that this impression will capture the theme of our community "Saskatoon Shines", our successes (industry, education, and innovation), historical background and people of Saskatoon and Saskatchewan. We are pursuing opportunities to "tell the story of the Community" while also enhancing the Airport Experience.
The Community Showcase program concepts include three basic focus categories, permanent initiatives, rotational displays and video opportunities. New initiatives are not limited to this approach, as the program is adaptive to other concepts. The entire Airport complex, including the Air Terminal Building and surrounding lands offer a variety of display mechanisms, intended to be representative of and "showcase" our community.
For more information on how to "Tell your story" please contact the Saskatoon Airport Authority at 306-975-4952.
