It was decided to allow returning smoking rooms to the airports. The relevant law was adopted by the State Duma.

Passengers will be able to visit the smoking rooms after passing through an inspection before flight, as well as in areas intended for transittravelers. At the same time, smoking rooms should be installed so that “the possibility of observing smokers from other premises is excluded”, according to the text of the bill.
