Smoking at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) (KUL)

Airport Rating


Before and After Security Smoking

Smoking is only permitted in designated areas outside the terminals.

KLIA - Satellite building

If you’re lucky enough to have access to the MAS Golden lounge (one world status etc.) there is a smoking room at the back. Not a bad way to have a free drink and a smoke before take-off. Feedback from Hopeful_smoker on the 17th July 2018.

There are two smoking areas on the Mezzanines Level (Level 2) of KLIA, one in the South Zone and the other in the North Zone. See map below.

Update from airport 27th April 2017:  

We do have 2 smoking lounges at the Satellite Building at the Mezzanine Level towards Gate C11 and C30.

You may proceed to the smoking lounge once you have check-in and received the boarding pass. In order to get to the Satellite Building, you must take the aero train after the security check point.

Smoking is not permitted in the airport's premises. However, there are established designated smoking areas inside the airport.
