Why smoking is not allowed in boxing

Airports from the perspective of smokers

[Revised on January 31, 2020]

 

Yes, yes, the annoying topic of smoking !!

Many will say: “I don't care. Let them stop. That's right, costs money and ruins your health! "
But you should be so tolerant and just accept someone else's vice.

Yes, we are smokers and we stand by that too!

After every long-haul flight we see the smokers running off and looking for the first best smoking cabin.

We are no different. And for this reason this article was created 3 years ago.

Now we have found that it is the most read article on our blog with over 50,000 views.

So there seems to be still a lot of interest in smoking cabins at airports.

We have therefore decided to completely revise this article and to list the most important airports with their options for smokers.

On the way we took pictures of smoking cabins and of course included them in the article.

If you are missing an important airport, please write it in the comments!


Note: This article is constantly being revised!
