    Call it an "e-smoking lounge" or a "vaping zone," but whatever you call it, it opened this week in Terminal 4 at London's Heathrow Airport.

    Electronic cigarette manufacturer Gamucci hosts the indoor area — off limits to anyone younger than 18 — as well as a store that allows travelers to sample and buy products too.

    Electronic cigarettes are "non-tobacco containing, non-combustible cigarettes which work by vaporizing nicotine liquid," according to consumer market research company Euromonitor International.
