Smoking at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport (ATL)

Airport Rating

8

Atlanta CityPASS

Before and After Security Smoking

Smoking is only permitted in designated areas outside the terminals.

Update from Dianne N : C40 is confirmed.  All ALT smoking areas are pretty gross...except E terminal.  I highly recommend E Terminal smoking areas for those that need to work and don't want to smell like an ashtray boarding their next flight.  Great ventilation.  Tables to sit at and TV monitors

24th March 2018 - Updated smoking areas are:

Concourse A:

Update from Tony on the 13th June 2018: Terrapin bar used to be smoking throughout but is now restricted to a small room in the back. You can no longer smoke at the bar which ruined the only good thing about it. It's now no better than all the other crappy smoking rooms throughout ATL.

Unconfirmed update from Al on the 1st April 2018: A3 no Lounge, A1 has TAP bar, purchase required. Nearest without purchase is B22

Can confirm smoking area near Gate A3. Feedback from Chris on the 19th January 2018.

Concourse B:

Gates 7 and 24 smoking rooms are still active. Feedback from Steve H. on the 11th March 2018.

Just confirmed the B concourse still has a smoking area in between gates 7/9. Feedback from Spencer O. on the 8th Feb 2018.

Can confirm smoking area near Gate B23. Feedback from Chris on the 19th January 2018.

Near gates 7 and 24

Concourse C:

Concourse C Update:  Gates 17 and 40.  They took half of the one by Gate 17 and made it a place for dogs to pee, so this smoking room is very tiny with no ventilation. Gate 40 is much better. Feedback from Steve H. on the 11th March 2018.

Update for Concourse C - 27th January 2018 - Smoking area between C17 & C21 (across from Starbucks). Feedback from Phil W.
