Denver airport moves toward becoming smoke-free

DENVER (AP) — Denver International Airport is moving toward becoming smoke-free.

Airport officials said Friday that concessionaires that run three of the four smoking lounges at the airport have agreed to close the lounges this year so they can be remodeled into non-smoking concessions concepts.

The fourth smoking lounge won’t close until after its concessionaire’s lease expires in 2018.

The American Nonsmokers’ Rights Foundation says 27 of the top 35 U.S. airports ban smoking indoors.

Denver Mayor Michael Hancock had asked concessionaires at the city-operated airport to end indoor smoking, saying it would protect the well-being of people who use the airport.
