Water stations with honesty boxes have been installed at Stansted to coincide with World Water Day.
Passengers can take a bottle of mineral water for a suggested fee of £1 before boarding their flights to keep themselves hydrated once on board.
“We’re relying on people to put in a £1 or essentially what they can afford,” said Cina Barreto, account manager – experiential at Blackjack Promotions, which is providing personnel to monitor stock levels across Stansted’s new water stations.
“A team member will visit regularly to check bottle count, ensuring the shelves are full and deliveries have been put out, so there is always a constant supply available for passengers.”
Barreto added: “The convenience factor is certainly going down well and people so far have been using the honesty boxes, indicating that they are happy to pay for the service, which they are clearly viewing as a kindness on behalf of the airport, not to mention feeling trusted.”
