Ban of Electronic Ciggies on Planes Is Expected

     WASHINGTON (CN) – The Department of Transportation plans to explicitly ban the use of electronic cigarettes on commercial flights, “due to the increased promotion of electronic cigarettes and the potential health and passenger comfort concerns they pose in an aircraft,” according to a proposed rule.
     The ban would apply to scheduled passenger interstate, intrastate and foreign air transportation.
     The agency also requests comment on extending the ban on smoking (including electronic cigarettes) to charter flights of U.S. carriers and foreign air carriers with aircraft that have a designed seating capacity of 19 or more passenger seats.
