Heathrow Airport in London Opens the First Electronic Cigarette Vaping Lounge

On November 25th of 2013 Heathrow Airport in London opened the first electronic cigarette Vaping Lounge in the International Departures Lounge at Terminal 4. Is this good news for vapers who travel?

On-line newspapers including FoxNews say “yes”. Since Heathrow’s airport regulations no longer permit smoking lounges, (smokers must still go outside), the world's first Vaping Lounge is seen as a haven for who choose to vape. E-Cigarette News thinks otherwise. This tiny cell-like room is not only an imposition to vapers, it’s degrading.

At only 30-square-meters (325-square-feet) and a good walk away from many of Heathrow's terminals, the lounge is hardly convenient. Restricted to those 18 and over, the vaping lounge is only open from 5:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. daily. 

Acknowledging a Lie

Unlike second-hand cigarette smoke, which has been proven to be dangerous to humans, second-hand e-cigarette vapor has been shown to be quite benign. Recent scientific tests show second-hand vapor poses no apparent risk to human health.

We believe vapers should be permitted to vape anywhere they choose including airport terminals and even onboard an airplane, although that's less likely to happen anytime soon.

 

The eCigarette Industry is Growing

It is currently estimated that there are between 7 and 12 million ecigarette users in the European Union alone. Unfortunately, until the science catches up with the moral crusade, vapers will continue to be ostracized and forced to use humiliating facilities similar to Heathrow’s minuscule Vaping Lounge. They will; however, continue to fight for the right to vape, and their numbers will continue to grow exponentially.
