Smoke-free policies issued by national, city, or airport authorities can protect employees and travelers from secondhand smoke inside airports.

Smoke-Free Policies in the World’s 50 Busiest Airports — August 2017

The U.S. Surgeon General has concluded that there is no risk-free level of exposure to secondhand smoke.  Previous CDC reports on airport smoke-free policies found that most large-hub airports in the United States prohibit smoking; however, the extent of smoke-free policies at airports globally has not been assessed.  The findings from this study show that among the world’s 50 busiest airports, nearly half — including five of the 10 busiest airports — completely prohibit smoking indoors.  The remaining 27 airports continue to allow smoking in designated smoking areas.  The 2006 Surgeon General’s report states that eliminating smoking in all indoor spaces is the only way to fully protect nonsmokers from involuntary exposure to secondhand smoke.
