NEW YORK CITY -- Travelers at several major U.S. airports can purchase TSA-friendly travel necessities on the fly from conveniently located vending machines.

The Zoom Systems automated stores stocked with products from New York City-based 3FLOZ, began appearing in airports in late August in Houston, Dallas, Las Vegas, New York's JFK, Raleigh-Durham, NC and Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN.

The initial airport machines are merchandised with a mix of core, often-forgotten items such as sunscreen, hairspray and toothpaste and novelty products like 3FLOZ's popular Essentials travel kits and other giftable items.

New York City-based 3FLOZ.com carries more than 50 high-end beauty, grooming and personal care brands in travel-size containers that meet the Transportation Security Administration's 3 fl.oz. size restriction. Its brands include Malin + Goetz, Supergoop!, Jack Black, Herban Essentials and Burt's Bees.

3FLOZ provides same-day delivery service of its beauty, grooming and personal care products in Manhattan, and also supplies them to hotels nationwide.

"Now by being in airports, we are physically there, with instant gratification, when our customers need us most," said 3FLOZ cofounder Alexi Mintz. "This expansion is a logical next step in our strategy to provide our customers a curated selection of travel products directly at their point of travel."
