Denver Airport goes smoke-free as it closes last smoking lounge

Denver International Airport (DEN) has closed its last remaining smoking lounge, meaning the hub is now a smoke-free facility. The Smokin’ Bear Lodge Smoking Lounge, located in the center of Concourse C, closed due to the end of its lease agreement.

According to the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, DEN joins more than 600 other airports nationwide as a 100% smoke-free facility.

Kim Day, CEO at DEN, commented, “We support Mayor Michael B Hancock’s efforts to create a healthier Denver by becoming a smoke-free facility. This journey began in 2012 with the initial closure of three other indoor smoking lounges, and today we are completing that goal with the closure of the last smoking lounge. We look forward to transitioning the C Concourse smoking lounge into an exciting new restaurant in the months to come.”

Designated smoking areas at the airport are now only located outside the Jeppesen Terminal on levels 4, 5 and 6. Smoking outside of designated areas, including the use of e-cigarettes, is prohibited on airport property.

There are also designated smoking areas on level 2 outside the Westin service doors on the east and west sides.
