Airport charges a euro for a smoke

Airport in Northern Ireland finds new ways to raise funds

Belfast International Airport has started to charge smokers £1 (around €1.15) for the privilege of lighting up in the departures area before they board their aircraft. If they want to smoke after check-in and before departure, they have to put a one-pound coin into the door of a smoking room. The airport has also started charging the same amount for dropping passengers off at the airport, and also for plastic bags to carry liquids through security.
“We recognised that there was a demand for a smoking facility from some customers given that all public places (including airports) are now, and have been for a number of years, non-smoking. We are responding to that demand,” the airport explained in a statement.
