The Dayton International Airport became a Tobacco-Free Campus effective January 1, 2019, when the City Commission passed a Resolution which added language in the Airport’s Rules and Regulations to prohibit the use of tobacco outside of certain dedicated smoking areas at or within the Airport Campus.
As awareness of the dangers of tobacco use and secondhand smoke increases, the City looks for more ways to protect people from tobacco-related health effects. The Airport is committed to maintaining the visual beauty of the Airport Campus, providing a high level of customer service and ensuring a healthy and safe environment for the traveling public and all employees. All persons, tenants, tenants’ employees, Airport employees, guests and travelers are required to adhere to the Rules and Regulations of the Airport. Smoking and smokeless tobacco generally means inhaling, exhaling, burning, vaporizing, carrying any lit cigar, cigarette, pipe, e-cigarette or any other like device, tobacco that is chewed or snuffed rather than smoked, which includes dipping tobacco, moist snuff, dry snuff, chewing tobacco, snus and all other types of tobacco.
There are currently two locations that are signed and dedicated as smoking areas. One pre-security near the entrance of the Cargo Road Employee Parking Lot, and the other post-security near the outside of the Field Maintenance Building. For more information, visit flydayton.com.
