Airport Rating


Before Security Smoking

Smoking is only permitted in designated areas outside the terminals.

After Security Smoking

Update from Diederik , April 2024: I have an update about the smoking situation at PKX . I flew through PKX twice in April 2024. All smoking rooms areas after security were closed. The airport staff also confirmed that there was no place to smoke after security. This doesn't reflect what the airport says on it's own site, but you might be able to update the information on your site to warn others in advance.

For connecting flights you must enter China and smoke outside terminal then go through Security again for your flight.

Older Feedback:

There are smoking facilities inside the terminal.

Update from Tianyu, Dec. 2019: Smoking is strictly prohibited inside Daxing airport. However, there are two smoking areas on the outside of the 4th floor, near Gates 3 and 4. Moreover, another 2 outdoors spots are located near Gates 9 and 10, on the 3rd floor, while on the 1st floor, you can walk outside, near Gates 17 and 18, and enjoy your cigarette.

So there are 4 outdoor smoking spots available after security on 3rd and 4th floor, departure (lighters are still prohibited, but "lighting stations" like TSN should be provided by the airport.

Update from Tianyu, Nov. 2019: There is a newly built Daxing Airport (PKX), which is much more smoker-friendly, there are two outdoor smoking gardens (sorry I don’t know the locations cause I haven’t been there but my friends told me so),  not much international flights from there, but Finnair, BA, Malaysia Airlines, POL, and Royal Air Maroco will be there since beginning of 2020, I would definitely choose PKX instead of PEK if possible.
