Saudi Arabia bans smoking at airports
Riyadh: A ban on smoking inside Saudi airports will be enforced from Sunday, starting with King Abdul Aziz International Airport in the coastal city of Jeddah.
The ban will be enforced at other airports in the kingdom gradually, where culprits will pay a 200 Saudi riyal fine (around USD 53).
Special rooms for smoking will be set up at airports.
Earlier this year, an advertisement campaign was launched on local TV about the harms of smoking targeting Saudi youth.
Local statistics showed that Saudi smokers spend eight billion riyals on cigarettes every year.
