Ryanair Offers Smokeless Cigarettes

Smoking on commercial airplanes has been illegal for years, but Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair may have found a solution to keep smoking passengers happy. Yesterday, the company began offering Smokeless Cigarettes onboard to make smokers’ flights more comfortable without bothering non-smokers—or violating the law.

In a recent survey, over 24,000 Ryanair passengers said they would like to smoke during flights. The company claims that Similar Smokeless Cigarettes look and feel like a real cigarette, but unlike the real thing, they say, the faux-cigarettes “contain no toxins or chemicals and are harmless to the user and to those around them.” The cigarettes deliver a small amount of nicotine through inhalation—passengers do not light the “cigarette.”

Ryanair’s Similar Smokeless Cigarettes are available to passengers over 18 years of age and are sold in packs of 10 onboard all Ryanair flights for €6 (a little less than $9).
