Smoking Ban Coming to OKC Airport
The last refuge for smokers at Will Rogers World Airport is slated to close this year.
The Oklahoman reports the Oklahoma City Airport Trust voted unanimously last week to shut down the smoking room at the airport on September 1st.
Airport spokeswoman Karen Carney says the smoking lounge sparked complaints from travelers as well as airport workers.
After the lounge is closed, smokers at the airport will have to go outside.
Smoking at Will Rogers also is banned up to 175 feet away from the entrance areas.
