New Chitose Airport is an airport in the Sapporo metropolitan area. It is the largest airport in Hokkaido.
It served over 18,000,000 passengers in 2006, the third in Japan after Narita and Haneda.

off the Chitose Line of JR Hokkaido. Rapid train services are in operation to and from Sapporo Station.
It links the airport and city within 40 minutes.

Smoking restriction of the world airports


Airport smoking rooms

Tobacco industry promotes the construction of designated smoking rooms as a way to sidetrack
efforts not to lose many smokers. A various study showed that nicotine-vapor air monitoring in
a non-smoking area of the airport, next to a smoking room located in the Terminal, reveals elevated
levels of ambient-nicotine-vapor in excess of what would be expected in a completely smokefree
environment. Japan Tobacco Inc.(JT) introduced a strong aspiration and deflation systems of
tobacco smoke. The company said it provide a comfort effect to both smokers and nonsmokers.
However, when we are in the area near the door-less entrance to smoking room, we feel somewhat
sick. An adverse effect to human health is not a so small, allergic reaction to tobacco smoke
may become evident. A chronic effect to an employer working in the airport terminal will include
cancer and heart disease.

Smoking room at the New Chitose Airport should be abandoned, in order to keep people staying
in the terminal healthier.

会社の方針としてあくまでも分煙を推し進めている。あたかも分煙でタバコ有害煙 を阻止できると錯覚させるのが戦略で、まやかしに過ぎない。

Japan Tobacco Inc. insists to keep a smoking room in all public places, including an airport terminal.
The researchers of the company propose the various separate smoking systems, like in the terminal
buildings in New Chitose Airport, Hokkaido. There is no entrance and/or exit door at the smoking room.
They claim tobacco smoke may not flow into a passenger waiting lobby. The company had been tried
every possible means to oppose a total smoking ban. Above scenes are photographed from the TV
commercial sponsored by the Japan Tobacco Inc..


Tobacco industry promotes to establish a separate smoking room in a restaurant and pub for smokers,
 trying to control the mind of all Japanese people by a repeated TV commercial. 分煙推進で洗脳行為するタバコ会社

危険性の高い扉のない誘引吸引分煙システム

タバコ会社は全面禁煙には絶対反対で、常に分煙方式を主張している。北海道、新千歳空港ターミナルには
JTご自慢の「扉のない」自動吸引システムを設置しているが、扉近くに行くとかすかにタバコの臭いが漂う。
拡散されて気付かれていないタバコの有害副流煙はさらに広範囲に周囲にまき散らされていることが想定
される。近くで働く空港勤務者は常に肺癌や心臓病など健康上の危険にさらされている可能性は低くない。

今、世界中の空港が喫煙室を廃止して全面禁煙へ移行するのか、こうした姑息的な手段でごまかしているが、
そうした手法がまかり通るのは日本という国情なのだろう。一日でも早い空港内全面禁煙への移行が必要で
あり、国民の誰もがクリーンな環境で生活を続ける権利がある。
