Following the new precautionary measures of Orange County, the Orlando International Airport has installed vending machines filled with personal protective equipment.
Travelers who have forgotten their PPE before arriving at the airport will now be able to get all the masks, hand sanitizer, and other personal protection equipment they need. And no… they are not going to take advantage of the situation… prices at the vending machines start at $7.50 for two masks.
“It is our top priority to make travelers and employees feel safe within our world-class airport. To do that, we want to ensure everyone can easily obtain personal safety essentials needed to travel during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Phil Brown, Chief Executive Officer of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority.
OIA said there are six Clean and Safe Travels vending machines set up in high touch point areas near the following airline ticket counters: JetBlue, Frontier, Southwest, Delta, United and American Airlines.
Other vendors in the airport are also selling PPE as an increased precaution and to slow the spread of the virus.
Travel at the OIA is still slow but coming back as the country and world attempt to reopen safely.
