Orlando International Airport may soon join 20 others around the country in selling advertising at security checkpoints. The Greater Orlando Aviation Authority is considering a plan to put ads on the plastic bins that hold travelers' shoes, computers and other personal items during screening. The airport would receive 15% of advertising revenue, and the company responsible for selling ads would also pay to replace the bins regularly. The airport authority has not publicly discussed how much revenue might be raised through the plan, but a smaller airport in nearby Jacksonville, Fla., brings in up to $300 per security lane each month.
