In Krasnoyarsk, a passenger was fined for smoking an electronic cigarette on an airplane

Passenger of the flight Moscow – Krasnoyarsk fined for smoking on board the plane, reports the Siberian Transport Prosecutor’s Office. The 38-year-old man went to the toilet and took a drag on his e-cigarette. An administrative case was opened against him.

The airline has the right to ground the plane in order to remove a cigarette lover from board, and then collect from him the expenses for the forced stop. In this case, the carrier took the offender to his destination and handed him over to the police. He is facing fine from 500 to 1500 rubles, so we can say that the smoker got off easy.

Due to the need to prove a passenger’s guilt in court, Russian airlines rarely resort to extreme measures. So, in 2018, Pobeda unsuccessfully tried to force a cigarette lover to pay for boarding at Vnukovo. Court got up on the side of the defendant, since the low-cost airline could not prove that the smoke eliminators reacted specifically to him.

In 2021, Aeroflot’s subsidiary was luckier. The company won a case against a tourist who decided to smoke on board. The court decided that the woman must compensate the carrier 212 thousand rubles. This amount included the costs of additional fuel, airport taxes, ground handling, etc.

Previously, TourDom.ru told which airports in Moscow you can take a drag on a cigarette. In Vnukovo and Sheremetyevo, smoking rooms are free, but in Domodedovo and Zhukovsky you can only smoke in front of the air terminal buildings.
