Detained Passengers Pay for their own Snacks

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

The detained passengers can purchase their own snacks. For example, vending machines were put in the Temporary Holding Area where we detain passengers that were found to be inadmissible and are awaiting their flight. This helps reduce the cost to maintain a variety of snacks to the passengers and offers more selection for them to purchase from.


The meals will be provided by the agency, but the stocking and restocking of the items will be done by the vending company.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
