The article deals with the implementation of smoking restriction in large-hub airports in the U.S. from 2002 to 2010. Results of a 2002 survey of airport smoking regulations found that 42 percent of 31 large-hub airports in the country had policies which require all indoor are to be smoke-free. In 2010, 76 percent of the 29 large-hub airports are reportedly smoke-free indoors. A chart is presented that shows the indoor smoke-free status of large-hub airports.
