ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta’s city council has approved a far-reaching ban on smoking and vaping in restaurants and bars — and potentially one of the world’s busiest airports.

City council members approved the ban on Monday, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. It covers cigarettes, cigars and electronic cigarettes. If signed by the mayor, it would take effect Jan. 2.

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is one of the few major U.S. hubs where people can still smoke inside designated rooms.
