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.

New 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"
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.
