Before Security Smoking

Smoking is only permitted in designated areas outside the terminals.

Feedback from Nicola 19th January 2017: Well worth upgrading to Business Class with Emirates if passing through Dubai.  Not only do you get spoiled for choice with food options in the Emirates lounge - you can also smoke in about a quarter of the area in complete comfort and good ventilation. Very comforting after a 16 hour flight from Auckland. Dubai's dedicated smoking booths get a little foggy to say the least.

Terminal 2: 

Near the departure boarding lounge.

Terminal 3: 

Update from Denim W, Oct 2019: B7 gate is closed for upgrades. C 23 is huge and air con.

Update from Kim B. on the 9th Feb 2019: Just to say that the SKY Bar near gate C16 at terminal 3 Dubai Airport has a smoking section at the back that's airy and overlooks runway.

Update from Terry O'S.: As of January 2019 Terminal 3 at DXB has 5 smoking rooms close to gates A9, A23, B7, C9 and C23. As mentioned by other travelers, there are also larger smoking areas inside the Emirates lounges 

Terminal 3: Feedback from Allie 27th March 2017: Can confirm Dubai Emirates business lounge has massive open smoking area with full bar and loads of seats.

The smoking room by B27 is now gone.  On concourse B there is still one by B7 but its poorly ventilated and seriously overcrowded. Feedback from Liam on the 3rd August 2018.
