Václav Havel Airport Prague to become non-smoking airport

On May 1st, 2018 Václav Havel Airport Prague will become a non-smoking airport. From this date it will not be allowed to smoke in any interior areas and all the smoking corners in transit area will be closed. By this decision Prague Airport follows the modern trend and responds to passengers’ feedback. The smokers among passengers will still be free to use the designated areas in front of the terminal buildings.

Prague Airport follows the example of many countries or single airports which already introduced absolute ban of smoking in airport interior. This applies, for example, to all airports in the United Kingdom and Spain, more than 600 airports in the USA and some airports in Russia. By joining this group Václav Havel Airport Prague will become one of the leaders of this vision in Central Europe.

This decision is based on a thorough analysis of operation of the temporary smoking areas and passengers’ feedback on them, consideration of operational and safety risks as well as investments necessary for building of permanent smoking rooms meeting strict legislative requirements.
