McCarran Airport in Las Vegas installs PPE vending machines
(CNN) — Running out of PPE products? If you’re in Las Vegas and planning to fly, the airport could provide a very clean and sanitized getaway.
On Thursday, McCarran International Airport announced on Twitter that they had installed new vending machines loaded with personal protective equipment.
According to McCarran Airport spokesperson Christine Crews, “The whole world is going through behavioral modification and learning new habits, so it’s not unthinkable that someone could show up at the airport and not have the new necessities that are part of travel.”
“I do believe we are the first in the nation to have these vending machines,” says Crews.
The white vending machines look much like a snack machine — but with more prized items inside.
PPE anyone? It’s just a vending machine away in McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas.

They have six rows of PPE products. The top of the machine reads “Clean & Safe Travels,” and you retrieve your purchase at the bottom by pushing in a door labeled “PPE.”
Inside the machines, there are a few hand sanitizer options, alcohol wipes, a four-pack of disposable gloves and a selection of masks.
The hand sanitizers cost from $4.25 to $6.50. A 10-pack of wipes is $5.25. The four-pack of gloves is $4.50. A cloth reusable mask (in adult and child sizes) is $14.50. And the KN95 disposable mask is $8.25.
“That’s as it’s stocked now. There could be rotating stock based on what’s available,” said Crews. She went on to say, “this might be the first one you see, but I’m confident it won’t be the last.”
