Reply To: Smokers Alley (aka Heathrow Airport)

Back to Forum


Martyn , I agree with what you are saying , but the rules of the smoking ban were clearly no smoking in enclosed public places or substantially enclosed places , so outside is not covered by the ban , but local bye laws can prevent smoking in all of the grounds ( many , if not all hospitals have done this) I’m not sure if T5 or BAA have this , or they might have specific designated areas / shelters where only smoking is permitted . I’m trying to remember what it was like when I was at T5 last year , I think it was a long stretched out area along the drop off with ashtrays / bins placed about 100m apart ?? I usually use LGW and they have specific shelters well away from the entrance doors ,
