“It’s not unthinkable that someone will show up at the airport and has left behind one of these items that’s almost essential now to air travel,” Christine Crews, a McCarran International Airport airport spokesperson told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Touting itself as the first airport to deploy the PPE machines, McCarran Airport promoted them last week on its social media platforms.
It’s airport convenience at airport prices. Three-packs of disposable masks are being sold for $7.50, while a reusable cloth mask will cost $14.50. Two sizes of hand sanitizer can be purchased for $4.25 and $6.50, respectively. A 10-pack of alcohol wipes costs $5.25. N95 masks run $8.25 apiece, and a 4-pack of disposable gloves is priced at $4.50.
McCarran, the nation’s 10th busiest airport, recorded a 2.3 million passenger drop in March compared to the same month in 2019. That translates to a 53 percent decrease in arriving and departing passengers year over year.
