Frankfurt Airport offers comfortable smoking lounges without affecting nearby non-smokers

By Tanya Filippelli

Frankfurt Airport has been smoke-free since 2008, apart from the smoking booths available to passengers around the airport.

Now Fraport has collaborated with the JTI tobacco company to create tastefully decorated, Camel-themed smoking lounges. Passengers can sit back in comfortable chairs and enjoy a cigarette before or after a long flight without affecting nearby non-smokers.

Passengers now have access to six Camel smoking lounges within the post-security areas of Terminal 1: in Pier A near Gates A52 and A66, in Pier B near Gates B23 and B43, and in Pier Z near Gates Z52 and Z66. Four additional smoking lounges are currently in planning phase. The glass smoking booths are free of charge and open around the clock. They continue to be available in all terminal areas, as well as in Terminal 2.

The comfortable smoking lounges are part of the “Great to have you here!” service program that Frankfurt Airport launched to introduce a host of improvements that would make it even easier and more pleasant to depart from and transfer at Germany’s largest passenger airport. Frankfurt Airport welcomed more than 57 million passengers in 2012.
