Follow these guidelines at your own risk.

It's a 5 minute walk to the "unofficial smoking area" once you leave the main terminal.  Walk to the very end of the undercover aisles of the carpark to the uncovered outside area, the no-smoking signs only apply to the area that is covered by a roof, you should be able to smoke unbothered once you're in the 'open air' carpark area.  

Alternatively, follow the signs for Public Transport. Once you are past the carpark guard's hut, provided there isn't a heavy flow of passengers, you can smoke on the walkway heading towards the main road.

This airport is best avoided if you smoke.

The restriction applies to businesses, airlines, visitors, passengers, employees and the general public, whose purpose is to protect present and future generations from the serious havoc of tobacco use or exposure to cigarette smoke.
