A trip to inspect smoking ban in Portugal



Smoking Restriction in Lisbon

Lisbon Portela Airport, also known as Lisbon Airport, is located 7km north of the city of Lisbon.
In Portuguese, it is called Aeroporto de Lisboa.

From February 2008, Portugal introduced a smoking ban in enclosed spaces in public places and
commercial establishments. The Portuguese airport authority followed by announcing a full ban
on smoking in areas of all airports except at Lisbon, where there are designated smoking areas.

According to the data presented by the Tobacco Manufacturing Asocation, about the cigarette
prices & tax, the tax incidence is 80 % for Portugal and 78% for Spain, respectively. However,
the price of a cigarette appeared to be equal in both countries. Marlboro, for instance,
costs 3.6 Euros in Lisbon, and 3.6 Euros in Barcelona, which is the same.

Duty-free shops are retailing outlets that do not apply local or national taxes and duties.
It is a bit of misnomer though because shoppers may still have to pay duties in their home
country on items purchased from the shops which are exempt from taxes. They are often
found in the international zone of airports, sea ports or on board passenger ships. They are
not as commonly available for road or train travelers, although several border crossings between
the United States and Canada have duty-free shops for car travelers. These outlets were
abolished for travel within the European Union in 1999, but are retained for travelers whose
destination is outside the EU. They also sell to intra-EU travelers but with appropriate taxes.

Ireland-based Ryanair is selling smokeless cigarettes on all the company’s flights. Ryanair says
a survey showed many passengers would like the option to smoke during flights. The air line
company sells the air passengers a pack of smokeless tobacco for 6 Euros. The company spokesman,
S.McNamara believes the smokeless nicotine-delivery device do not emit any toxins or chemicals
to nearby passengers.

There are many hostile criticisms on the extra-charge enforced by the Ryanair. Recently, when
the Iceland's volcanic ash caused European disruption, Ryanair did not support their passengers.
Italian civic aviation authority, in May 2010, said to impose a fine on Ryanair 3 million Euros for
failing stranded customers when their flights were canceled.

全面禁煙となった。空港は国際、国内空港をすでに喫煙室を設けているリスボン空港を除き、空港内

喫煙場所と禁煙場所が同じ部屋で、ただ換気装置を設けることで良しとしているところも少なくない。
宿泊したホテルのレストラン、バーではこうした不完全分煙の方式がとられていた。中途半端な

New smoking law set to come into force

A new law which clamps down even further on smoking is to come into force on 1 January 2018.
Under the new law e-cigs and other devices will be governed by the same laws as traditional tobacco,
and smoking will be banned in all places frequented by minors. The law further states that designated outdoors
areas should be created for smokers, and covered to protect against the elements.


The government "approved a bill for the protection of citizens from the involuntary exposure to tobacco smoke
and for the reduction of demand relating to addiction, as well as for the cessation of its consumption and
the reinforcement of the information available to consumers," the statement said.

The bill bans smoking in areas with service in all types of restaurants, cafes and bars, including in concert venues
and cinemas, casinos, bingo halls, games rooms and other spaces that host non-artistic shows.

The new packs will feature the product name in standard font on the front below a huge health warning.


Why do all cigarette boxes now have plain packaging? The aims of the laws are simple - to cut the number
of people taking up smoking by making it less appealing to children and young people. Tobacco products
have already been hidden under the counter, and now they are losing their colorful branding. According to
Cancer Research, two-thirds of smokers start before the age of 18 - the beginning of an addiction which will kill
up to two in three long-term smokers. The cigarette companies will be stripped of their branding, with
boxes only displaying graphic images of smoking-related illnesses.
Two-thirds of smokers start before they are 18, according to Cancer Research
.

Several studies have shown standard packs change attitudes and beliefs around smoking, by reducing
its appeal and making health warnings more prominent. Australia has had standardized packs since
December 2012, and figures suggest smoking has declined since then.
