Smokers to get airport lounge

MEDIALOUNGE is the rather odd name of a new ‘smokers paradise’ being introduced by a Swedish company to try and eliminate smoking problems at airports.  (See Happy Talk below).  The Medialounge solution is an easily erected modular unit with a capacity of eight to 60 persons.  The air in the lounge is exchanged up to 2.5 times per minute guaranteeing a fresh and clean environment both outside and inside the lounge.  The company says the unit can become self-financing by the sale of advertising space, internet facilities and other airport services.  It claims that smokers lounges currently provided are often not ventilated properly causing problems not only for passengers but also with airport air conditioning systems.  The smallest unit is only 2.5 x 2.5 x 2.5m. www.medialounge.se
