Smoking at Barcelona El Prat Airport (BCN)

Smoking Rating

7

Before and After Security Smoking

Smoking is only permitted in designated areas outside the terminals.

Latest feedback provided by Filip on the 12th June 2017: Confirming smoking area at Terminal 1. After the security check go downstairs, to the left and soon you will see exit doors to a large terrace, where is possible to smoke and there are also several pubs, so you can have a beer or a drink and a cigarette :)

From Lyad F.: There are at least two smoking areas in Terminal 1.

One open air smoking area is located at the Gates C area, at the Haagen Dazs cafe.

The second is located beginning of the Gates A area, where the Costa Coffee Cafe is located. Near Lizarran Restaurant.

Unfortunately there are no signs leading to the smoking areas.  15/09/2016 06h00

Word from Jorg R. - Just to confirm, BCN T1 still has the outside smoking area. After security go downstairs, to the left. Reason I know: I'm smoking there at this same moment ;-) 28-08-2016

We have received word from a fellow traveller called Joe who has kindly informed us that there is still a large outdoor smoking area after security in Terminal 1. 08-10-2013.

Tip from Terry: Barcelona T1 (newer terminal) has indeed a large outdoor smoking area BUT ONLY for gates A, B and C...which I used before. Last week I was flying from gate D (same rules for gate E) and for whatever reason here you have no access to get downstairs (believe me I tried) to smoke. So for any smokers flying out of T1 BCN, check which gate area you depart from...A,B or C...your OK, D or E and you need to read this carefully...Immediately after clearing security you go left for D, right for E, or downstairs for A, B or C...GO DOWNSTAIRS!!! You can get back up again (as far as I know) and besides A,B and C have ALL the shops, only McDonalds and small store for D area, much better spending your time downstairs.
