The colorful cigarette displays will look futuristic, and will be located next to fashion boutiques, shops and cafes. As of July, smoking was banned in Dubai’s public areas, and smoking in the air was banned. The authorities were quite worried about Dubai being too cosmopolitan for such a ban. They feared that in the age of electric cigarettes it would be difficult to turn back smoking, and that smoking in public places would be an uncomfortable experience.
To avoid any issues at Dubai airport smoking, IQOS was provided with electronic cigarette covers. The products have been ready for sale for over a year. Those who are anxious to have a cigarette with their IQOS have to leave behind their cigarette cover at the airport, but they will have it returned at the end of the trip.

Currently IQOS is the world’s biggest cigarette brand, with revenues that amounted to $3.9 billion in 2014. The profits of Philip Morris International make up one third of their revenues. Philip Morris had $6.36 billion in revenues in 2014. IQOS has been selling in Japan since 2014. The company was formed in April 2008, and was originally called Eurocigarette S.A. In 2010, it was renamed to Philip Morris Japan S.A. Meanwhile, IQOS is being introduced in various other countries of the world, such as Dubai, London, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Milan, New York, and France. Those countries were chosen due to their anti-smoking ordinances. In France, a new law was passed in 2012 that banned smoking in all public places, and cigarettes are not allowed to be sold in any place outside the establishment where they are bought. The IQOS products will not be sold in Dubai in the near future, but by 2020, some local smokers will be able to enjoy their cigarette with IQOS products, and will be able to smoke in other countries as well. If IQOS is too foreign for your taste, other types of electronic cigarettes might be suitable for you as well. For example, the sleek and sophisticated IQOS, the vaping machine by Philip Morris, offers a very personal and private experience for smokers who are not ready to change their habits. The IQOS has recently been introduced in Dubai, and it was announced that even those who already smoke traditional cigarettes can change to the IQOS by 2020. The IQOS has been developed with a feature that will turn the smoke into steam, and it looks much more sophisticated than traditional cigarette displays.
If you have already made your decision to quit smoking, it is possible to switch to IQOS within 30 minutes. For example, at the Philip Morris Dubai factory where IQOS is made, the employees can smoke in private areas if they want, as long as they keep their IQOS box in their bags.
