After Security Smoking

Updates from Rene F., March 2024: After the airport expansion completed in 2023, the new shiny terminal is much bigger. A comfortable and well ventilated smoking room is located next to Gate 11 (Photos below), a minute walk to your left after passport control and a slightly more basic one is located at Gate 15, at the far right end of the terminal. A third one is at Gate 16, at the far end of the terminal and one more basic smoking room on the lower floor, near gate 2.
