+1 just use a small bucket and a battery aerator, it doesn't have to be a 5 gallon. You can find the aerator in all fishing stores or any store that has a fishing department.

Just use an aquarium air pump to fill up the bags. I do this with nearly all of the fish that I ship. Insert airline tubing into the bag and then remove and twist the bag when it has enough air in it.

I also use a medical grade o2 tank from time to time, but over time have pretty much stopped using it completely since I haven't noticed a difference in survival rates for 2-3 day priority shipments.

I would not use an air compressor due to risk of oil contamination.

When I moved I brought my fish in a cooler that way the water stayed close to the same and I used a battery powered air pump.

4 hours isn't all that long. Most of our fish were packed the day before they got to the wholesaler or LFS. Temperature control and the volume of airspace above the waterline are the keys here. No problem with using an airline if you want, but that's not necessary either. Practice snatching a bag with a little water in it and twisting the top to pressurize the bag. It takes a little practice, but it's not too tough.

When we shipped fish, we used very tall bags, heavy duty, that were 2/3 air. These were good for so many fish for +24 hours. When we lost shipments, it was because they got delayed on the docks for a few extra days, or the weather was extreme and they sat exposed to it for too long. For a short hall, a cheap battery power air stone and cooler, both available at a Bass Pro Shop, should last for a long time.
