Reply To: Smokers Alley (aka Heathrow Airport)

Back to Forum


There are rules in most countries about smoking within a certain distance of a building, in order to inhibit the ‘smokers’ alley’ effect, but they are widely ignored.

The worst place I go to regularly is Schiphol where the entire outside Plaza seems to be taken up by nicotine addicts and the floor is carpeted with the detritus of their addiction. I always go out for a breath of fresh air between flights and have to walk a good few hundred metres to get away from the stench of tobacco.
