    Riyadh: A ban on smoking inside Saudi airports will be enforced from Sunday, starting with King Abdul Aziz International Airport in Jeddah.

    The ban will be enforced at other airports in the kingdom gradually, where offenders will pay a 200-Saudi riyal fine (around $53).

    Special rooms for smoking will be set up at airports.

    Earlier this year, an advertisement campaign was launched on local TV about the harms of smoking targeting Saudi youth.

    Saudi smokers spend eight billion riyals on cigarettes every year, according to local statistics.
