"This project was installed within three weeks without causing any annoyance."
Mr. Harald Nierula, Senior Manager of Fraport
The Challenge

"As efficiency is one of the main priorities at airports, not being able to smoke inside the terminal caused many unnecessary problems and costs."

Frankfurt Airport is one of the major air traffic hubs in the world. Over 54 million passengers passed through the airportlast year plus another 15 million visitors. Passenger count wise, Frankfurt Airport ranks third in Europe behind London Heathrow and Paris-Charles de Gaulle. In the cargo sector they are no.1 in Europe. So far over 500  companies, operating in a wide range of sectors, settled at Frankfurt Airport.

The October 2007 non-smoking law caused serious problems for Frankfurt Airport, as smoking is prohibited within all airport terminals. As expected, many passengers tried to leave the terminal for a smoke – or smoked illegally in the toilet facilities. As efficiency is one of the main priorities at airports, not being able to smoke inside the terminal caused many unnecessary problems and costs. The need for a flexible solution became a high priority.

The Challenge (part 2)

"As the smoking cabins of Euromate are placed at strategic points within the terminals, the efficiency of the passenger traffic has finally been optimised."

Another issue was the ban of tobacco advertising. This caused many problems for JTI, Japan Tobacco International, decreasing the number of smokers rapidly. The European Union and World Health Organization have both specified that the advertising of tobacco should not be allowed, with effect from 27 February 2005. JTI is the international tobacco division of Japan Tobacco Inc., the world’s third largest tobacco company.

 

Harald Nierula: “As the smoking cabins of Euromate are placed at strategic points within the terminals, the efficiency of the passenger traffic has finally been optimised. Previous problems at customs and/or the sanitary facilities have now been eradicated. The possibility for JTI as sponsor for the smoking cabins made it very interesting for both parties. The service and maintenance team is doing a great job on a daily basis, leaving no ground for concern. Due to the expertise of Euromate, this project was installed within 3 weeks without causing any undue annoyance for both the airport terminals and its passengers.”

The Solution

"The freestanding units operate independently from the existing air-treatment system."

The smoking cabins of Euromate are available in various sizes starting from the compact model up to the large plaza unit with various settings. The possibility to create all kinds of smoking area settings, was the flexible solution Frankfurt Airport was looking for.

 

Not only do the smoking cabins blend perfectly with the architectural design of Frankfurt Airport, but the freestanding units also operate independently from the existing air-treatment system.

 

Smoking passengers can keep an eye on the departure screens, thanks to the glass walls. Frankfurt Airport is the first airport with self-closing sliding doors developed as a response to the legal requirements. The preparation, installation and service requires a dedicated project team. The installation of smoking cabins at airports is in regard to the logistics different from installing cabins in offices due to the safety regulations and limited (working) time during the night.

Achieve favourable savings

  • Comfortable solution, also for non-smokers, as people outside the smoking cabin do not smell the tobacco smoke and inhale harmful gasses.
  • Smoking cabins can be placed anywhere, thus saving costs and space, as no special smoking rooms need to be created.
