BWI ANNOUNCES NEW SMOKING RESTRICTIONS

 WASHINGTON, Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Effective Nov. 9, 1993, the Maryland Aviation Administration, operator of Baltimore/Washington International Airport (BWI), is implementing smoking restrictions within the BWI passenger terminal. Smoking will be allowed only in designated smoking areas. Those areas include airline or airport clubs, cocktail lounges and leased office/business areas not accessible to the general public. The BWI smoking restrictions were adopted through the Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR) process, following a period of public review and comment.
 BWI joins a number of airports across the United States in limiting smoking within the passenger terminal. Of 58 airports responding to a survey earlier this year by the Airports Council International-North America, the trade association representing the country's airports, 53 have instituted smoking restrictions.
 As this smoking policy is implemented, passengers will be informed through signs in the terminal announcing the smoking restrictions, and signs delineating designated lounge and club smoking areas. Public announcements will be made throughout the terminal via the public announcement system. For information regarding the smoking restrictions, contact Linda Greene, director of communications, Maryland Aviation Administration, 410-859-7027.
