Christchurch International Airport goes butt litter free with No BuTTs Eco-Pole Ashtrays
Christchurch International Airport, located on
New Zealand's South Island is installing No BuTTs award-winning Eco-Pole WET System Wall & Post-mounted Ashtrays as part of their facilities upgrade.

CIAL Chief Executive Jim Boult says the smoking areas respect people's rights to smoke and are a response to requests.

"The health effects of cigarette smoking are well known, but whether or not to smoke is a personal decision. We provide large buildings constantly used by the public, so we need to provide for smokers," he says. 

Eco-Pole WET System  with optional Liquid Charging
"We have a new terminal building of which we, airport stakeholders and Christchurch residents are very proud. The visual and health and safety aspects of smokers huddled at the terminal entrances and building frontage detract from this and from everyone's experience here, so we have come up with this solution.

"We are the Gateway to the South, the best New Zealand has to offer and we are constantly looking for ways to improve every person's experience on the airport campus."

The smoking areas are positioned outside the new terminal, the international arrivals hall and the Regional Terminal. They are complemented by planter boxes and new pathways.

"Airports all over the world usually leave smokers a space to smoke together, but it is often in a dark corner or outside area. That's not what we want to offer visitors and staff.

"We are offering smokers shelter from sun, rain and wind, as well as seating and lighting for night use and security." 

Christchurch International Airport's New Terminal
"Christchurch International Airport Management should be commended for their intelligent and balanced approach to the issue of smoking." said No BuTTs Managing Director,
Jack Jacobson.

"Jim's completely correct when he acknowledges the requirement to provide safe, easily accessible and user-friendly Designated Smoking Zones, because if smokers can't easily do the right thing in the right place, they'll do the wrong thing in the wrong place."

"We're delighted that C.I.A.L. has selected No BuTTs Eco-Pole WET System Wall & Post-mounted Ashtrays for their D.S.Z's.
