This part implements a ban on smoking of tobacco products on air carrier and foreign air carrier flights in scheduled intrastate, interstate and foreign air transportation, as required by 49 U.S.C. 41706. It also addresses smoking on charter flights. Nothing in this regulation shall be deemed to require air carriers or foreign air carriers to permit the smoking of tobacco products aboard aircraft.

NOTE TO § 252.1: As defined in 49 U.S.C. 40102, an ‘‘air carrier’’ is a citizen of the United States undertaking to provide air transportation, and a ‘‘foreign air carrier’’ is a person, not a citizen of the United States, undertaking to provide foreign air transportation.


This part applies to all operations of air carriers engaged in interstate, intrastate and foreign air transportation and to foreign air carriers engaged in foreign air transportation, but does not apply to the on-demand services of air taxi operators.
