Cigarette Lighters Banned At Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport

All smokers listen up. Lighters are no longer allowed on board airplanes. On Thursday lighters were confiscated at Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport. A new rule prevents passengers from carrying lighters onto airplanes. Lighters have been banned from checked luggage from quite some time.

"The airlines are providing a lot of support in questioning the customers about lighters when they check in and then at the check point also, so we're having very few that come through the check point, " said Jim Holden, Federal Security Director of Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport.
