VendSafe takes flight at Leeds Bradford Airport

Livewell vending stations at Leeds Bradford Airport

We all know the feeling… you’re waiting for a flight and suddenly realise you’ve forgotten your water bottle. There’s no going back through security and you know you’ll want a drink soon. Plus you’re starting to get hungry too. So what do you do?

With even fewer options available during the COVID-19 pandemic, you look around… and a Livewell vending station catches your eye. Drinks, snacks, PPE – it’s got everything you need.

Which is why we’re thrilled to announce our new partnership with Leeds Bradford Airport, where we’ve just installed three of our VendSafe stations to provide passengers with essential travel supplies.

Automated, hygienic and safe

As lockdown eases and travel slowly resumes, passengers are starting to return to airports. But with new hygiene guidelines in place for air travel, things aren’t as straightforward as before. Many airlines have suspended the sale of food and drink on flights to reduce in-flight contact points – and not all catering options in terminals have returned.

Livewell’s VendSafe stations provide a quick and easy way for travellers to buy what they need before boarding. These self-serve stations are low touch, low contact and low stress…ideal for passengers. And there are added benefits too…

  • Low contact stations with wipe-clean touch screens.
  • Quick and easy automated product dispense.
  • Hygienic, temperature-controlled product storage behind glass screens.
  • Wide range of branded snack and drink choices along with PPE travel essentials.
  • Contactless payment methods via credit/debit cards, ApplePay etc.
  • COSSH approved antibacterial gel dispenser fixed to the front of stations.
  • Floor signage to help aid social distancing.

Find what you need at Leeds Bradford Airport

We’ve installed three VendSafe stations in the Airport.

One landside, selling snacks, masks, face coverings and 100ml antibacterial spray. All items can be taken through security.

And two airside, located on the ground floor departure lounge, opposite gates 7 and 8. One station sells a full range of snacks, whilst the other has drink options in bottles and cans. You can take any of these items on your flight.

As a Leeds-based business, we’re especially delighted to be able to provide this service to passengers and staff at Leeds Bradford Airport. Offering a safe way to access the food, drink and PPE they need, we hope it will be a reassuring service to those travelling again.

VendSafe really is taking flight!
