Many smokers are putting the light on the outside of the airport.

smoking booths, which are located in the transit areas of Terminal 1 and Terminal 2.

The Turkish tobacco that is used in Camel cigarettes has a much more distinctive odor when burned as
compared to other cigarettes. Filtered Camel cigarettes sold outside the US by JT International do not
contain Turkish flavor, instead they are produced in Romania with local tobacco.

Munich airport

Munich Airport viewed from satellite.

Munich International Airport (German: Flughafen Munchen) is an international airport located 28.5 km
northeast of Munich, Germany, and is a hub for Lufthansa. There are still smoking lounges and smoking
cabins at the Munich Airport. They are located in both terminals in every departure area.

The strictest smoking ban in Germany is in force in Bavaria, despite massive protests. Failure to comply
will result in fines for smokers and restaurant owners who have to pay, 5 euros minimum or 1,000 euros
maximum. For the restaurants at the airport, the goal is to deal with this issue in the most liberal way
possible, but the law is the law. As a result, effective immediately, smoking is permitted only outdoors,
which means outside the entrances and in the outdoor area of the Munich Airport Center. Ashtrays are
available at those locations.

A train to Munchen airport departs Hauptbahnhof, via Ostbahnhof.

Anti-smoking laws in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW)

Tough new anti-smoking laws come into force in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) in
May 2013. Pubs and restaurants in NRW will no longer be able to provide designated smoking areas.
Until now, smoking has been allowed in smaller bars and in certain areas of restaurants.

Martina Potschke-Langer of the German Cancer Research Centre welcomed the law, saying that businesses
had benefited from far too many exceptions allowed by the previous ban. The only exception under the
new law applies to private events like family parties.

The ban also applies to electronic cigarettes and shisha pipes, Egyptian hookah. The only other German
state with similarly strict regulation is Bavaria. Elsewhere, anti-smoking laws are more lax. In Baden
-Wurttemberg and Bremen people are allowed to smoke in marquees and in the side rooms of bars and
clubs. And in Hamburg and Berlin, pubs of 75 square meters or less can be designated "smoking" bars.
However, there is some claim the new law puts businesses at risk. The German Hotel and Hospitality
Association in NRW said that the survival of up to 3,000 businesses could be in question.
