Smoking in Airports in Europe and the US. : This is a cross-sectional study using an established secondhand smoke assessment protocol to investigate airport smoking in 21 airports in Europe and the United States. “Cigarette butts (45% vs. 0%), smoke smell (67% vs. 0%), ashtrays (18% vs. 10%), and DSRs (63% vs. 30%) were observed more commonly indoors in Europe

than in the United States. Poor compliance indoors was related to the presence of DSRs and to cigarettes sales in pre-security areas, though not statistically significant.” Authors conclude that “Exposure to secondhand smoke (SHS) remains a public health problem in major airports across Europe and in some airports in the United States, specifically related to the presence of DSRs and SHS exposure in outdoor areas.”
