March Mission Moment

Celebrating 25 Years of No Smoking in Airplanes

Take a deep breath and imagine (or if you’re old enough – remember) what the air quality would be like in an airplane when everyone in the back was smoking. It was just 25 years ago that legislation was passed banning smoking on all domestic flights in the US.

In 1986, the US Surgeon General named secondhand smoke a serious health risk. That same year, the National Academy of Sciences called for a smoking ban on all domestic flights, citing research that showed flight attendants were exposed to smoke levels similar to those of a person living with a pack-a-day smoker.

In the 1980’s, national health organizations including the American Cancer Society joined the Association of Flight Attendants in a campaign to end smoking in airplanes. In 1988, President Ronald Reagan signed a federal law prohibiting smoking on domestic flights of less than 2 hours. Congress strengthened the law in 1989, extending it to domestic flights of 6 hours, which covered nearly every flight route in the country. The law became permanent 25 years ago on Feb. 25, 1990 when it was signed by President George H.W. Bush.
