McCarran Airport installs vending machines for personal protection equipment

McCarren International Airport in Las Vegas has announced it is the first airport in the US to install vending machines stocked with personal protective equipment (PPE), the company said.

Among the items in the new PPE vending machines are face masks, gloves and liquid hand sanitizer.

The items may come in handy for travelers who don´t already have their own supplies, considering that all major US airlines are requiring face masks for passengers.

The team at McCarran International Airport has undertaken additional measures to protect flyers from the spread of the virus, including increasing cleaning frequency of high-touch surfaces and requesting that entry to the airport be limited to ticketed passengers and employees only.
