This time next month, smokers flying in and out of Yeager Airport in Charleston can expect to see some big changes.

The Airport Board met Wednesday to discuss plans about a possible smoking ban.

Board members have already voted to eliminate smoking in the lounge.

The next proposal is to eliminate smoking in the bar and in front of the terminal about 45 feet into the parking lot.

That policy is still up for public comment.

The board has to give the public a 20 day notice before it votes to go smoke-free.

Rick Adkinson, Yeager Airport Director, says it is a transition that is already getting some negative feedback.

The board will meet again in September to officially vote on the ban.
