Frequently Asked Questions

What is considered smoking/vaping?
Smoking is defined as inhaling, exhaling, burning or carrying a lighted tobacco product including cigarettes, cigars and pipe tobacco.
Vapor products are defined as any noncombustible product containing nicotine that employs a heating element, power source, electronic circuit, or other electronic, chemical, or mechanical means, regardless of shape or size that can be used to produce vapor from nicotine in a solution or other form.  It includes any electronic cigarette, electronic cigar, electronic cigarillo, electronic pipe, or similar product or device and any vapor cartridge or other container of nicotine in a solution or other form that is intended to be used with or in an electronic device.
What happens if I smoke or vape inside the airport?
The City of Atlanta smoking ordinance is enforced by the Atlanta Police Department. Persons who violate the ordinance are subject to a civil penalty up to a $200 fine.
What if I cannot get to the outdoor smoking areas between my flights?
While Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is in full compliance with the City of Atlanta smoking ordinance and the state of Georgia’s Smoke Free Act, we realize that for many passengers, smoking is a part of their daily activity.  That is why the airport will make available free, Good Sense branded, FDA approved nicotine replacement therapy lozenges for a limited time.  The lozenges can be found at participating concessionaires throughout the domestic and international concourses from January 2-31, 2020.

Our mission is to provide the Atlanta region a safe, secure and cost-competitive gateway to the world that drives economic development,
operates with the highest level of customer service and efficiency, and exercises fiscal and environmental responsibility.
