Denver International Airport closes last smoking lounge

March 01, 2018 - 5:37 PM

Denver International Airport has decided to become a smoke-free facility.

KMGH-TV reports that the airport's last smoking lounge is closing Wednesday night.

The Colorado Tobacco Free Alliance is celebrating the closure. It says the alliance launched a campaign to make the airport smoke-free in June 2008.

Airport spokesman Heath Montgomery said closing all smoking lounges had been a long-time goal.

Heath said one of the challenges in making the airport smoke-free had to do with end-of-lease agreements, which the Smokin' Bear Lodge Smoking Lounge recently reached.

The airport joins 619 others to become smoke-free in the U.S.
