    Melbourne Airport is set to clamp down on smokers who ignore the no-smoking signs and continue to puff away around doorways making it unpleasant for people entering and leaving the terminals.

    The Herald Sun says travellers are sick of being forced to walk through a wall of cigarette smoke to get in and out of terminals.

    Melbourne Airport spokesman Matt Francis told the paper that smoking areas would be reviewed and changes announced in the next three months.

    "We are reviewing the smoking zone areas with a view to improving the amenity of the area outside our terminal," he said.

    As a related aside, I'm really impressed by how far Australia has progressed in this area. I lived there briefly in the '80s and was continually shocked by how it seemed that everyone in Australia smoked and assumed everyone else did too. What a difference 30 years makes :)
