The McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas is well-known in the travel circuit for its vending machines, which are not only eye-catching but also have interesting items available in them. One can get almost everything in these vending machines, from cupcakes to toiletries, Legos, and much more. However, now amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Las Vegas airport has installed vending machines that are selling personal protective equipment (PPE), including gloves, face masks, wipes, and hand sanitizers.

Referring to this, the airport spokesperson Christine Crews stated that a lot has changed in the travel scenario under the current circumstances and that they are trying to learn and adapt to new behaviours, which also applies in the airport environment too.

The spokesperson added that with all the behavioural changes that have been taking place rapidly, it’s not unthinkable that someone can show up at the airport and forget one of these essential items, which are now almost essential for travel. In such cases, these PPE vending machines can prove to be handy for them.

While two PPE vending machines are located on either side of Terminal 1 ticketing area, the third one can be traced near the TSA checkpoint in Terminal 3.

While a 10-pack of wipes will cost a traveller $5.25, hand sanitizers will cost you anywhere from $4.25 to $6.50. Further, a four-gloves pack will cost a traveller $4.50, a KN95 disposable mask will cost $8.25, and a reusable cloth mask is priced at $14.50 among other items. These are the latest addition to the airport’s safety protocols to tackle the spread of the deadly virus.
