Airport Rating


Before and After Security Smoking

Smoking is only permitted in designated areas outside the terminals.

Important Update: The Smoking Bear Lounge is now closed, see photo below. Photo and feedback provided by Jeff on the 3rd March 2018.

Update from Jamie 28/01/17: Smoking inside the secure area is only permitted at "Smokin' Bear Lodge Smoking Lounge", located in Concourse C at the core/middle of the concourse. $3/person cover which applies to your first drink (required). Easily accessible from all concourses within 5 min.

Update from Eddie 24/11/16: The smoking area mentioned in terminal C is between gates c39 and c40 on the side of a restaurant called Timberline near one of the escalators. You pay 3 dollars to get in and that counts towards your first drink. I asked the hostess about the re-entry limit. You can re-enter as many times as you want that same day as long as you keep your receipt.

Update from Ben 04/09/16: Smoking permitted outside in certain areas,  smoking is only permitted at gate C with $3 cover that you can apply to a drink or soda.  Sodas are $3.

Update: Terminal C maybe the only terminal with smoking facilities, to enter the smoking lounge a cost of $3 is required, but this allows you to enter 3 times. More information is needed.
