It seems like all the airlines, buses and railway services around the world have made this universal pact to ban vaping and the materials associated with it, which include mods and wraps, drip tips, and cartomizers. These days you probably feel the only place you can be safe and comfy while vaping is in your home.
But, that doesn’t have to be the case all the time.
London’s Heathrow Airport welcomed the world’s first vaping zone in 2013.
Now passengers passing through Heathrow’s Terminal 4 are able to enjoy premium electronic cigarettes in comfort and style in the “Gamucci Electronic Cigarette Zone.”
The Gamucci Zone is the first airport venue to offer a designated indoor area where passengers can enjoy electronic cigarettes. It can be found in the International Departure Lounge next to luxury brands and duty free stores, with entry restricted only to those aged 18 and over.
Today, Heathrow allows vapers to enjoy a few puffs from their vapes at designated areas.
Passengers are permitted to use electronic cigarettes within our premises; however, these should not be used beyond the gate area. Where you are intending to carry cigarettes in your hand luggage, please check with your airline to ensure they are allowed on board the aircraft.
In the United States, vaping is explicitly prohibited inside planes and trains. Vape Unlimited Magazine reported that “vaping is not allowed inside terminals at Orlando International Airport, but it is allowed inside terminals at Tampa International Airport.”
The site also lists other airports in the United States where vaping is allowed indoors. These include Charlotte Douglas International, Dulles International, McCarren International, Miami International, Ronald Reagan Washington International, Minneapolis-St. Paul International, and Phoenix Sky Harbor International.
Furthermore, most of the major airports have designated areas for both smoking and vaping. An extended list of airports that welcome vapers is found on the E-cigarette Forum website. If you traveled often, then I encourage you to check it out as soon as possible.
