Dubai Airports has installed personal protective equipment (PPE) vending machines to ensure passengers’ safe travels.

The two machines are located in the departure areas of Buildings 3 and 2, state run news agency Dubai Media Office reported.

The PPE includes a pair of gloves, and two types of disinfectants. More products are expected to be added in the coming days, including reusable and certified face masks.

In addition to the cargo and repatriation flights, which continued throughout the suspension of flights as a result of the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak, Dubai Airports has handled a number of scheduled passenger flights from Terminal 3 to select destinations starting from 21 May.

In March 2020, Dubai Airports appointed Sharjah-based public-private partnership firm Bee’ah as its waste management partner for the Dubai International Airport and Dubai World Central, to work in partnership with Dubai Airports’ facilities care team to dispose waste from excess baggage and confiscated materials, as well as oversee both airside and landside waste management operations, including non-hazardous and hazardous waste, used cooking and engine oil waste, and all recyclables.
