Terminal 1

Update from András , Nov 2019: There's a smoking booth in terminal one, in front of gate 40

There is one small smoking cabin after Security check at TLV Ben Gurion Airport Terminal 1. It is located on the left hand side right after the security check, next to the toilet. Feedback from Alex K. on the 14th November 2017.

There is a second smoking hub located between gates 35 and 36. Usually emptier than the other one. Feedback from Joana on the 31st December 2017.

Terminal 3

Update from niek, Aug 2020, needs verified, but be wary: ALL SMOKING AREAS CLOSED PERMANENTLY IN ENTIRE TERMINAL

Tel Aviv Ben gurion airport has a smoking booth in corridor E between gates E0 & E2. Update from Niek, Feb 2020.

Smoking is only permitted in the Schmoozy Tapas Bar which has a private smoking area in terminal 3 departures before security.

There are 3 new smoking chambers, in addition to exiting ones in the middle of B,C and D corridors. This addition is very nice and makes the TLV airport even more smoker friendly. Updates from Shay L. on the 7th September 2017.

Smoking Booths are also at the end of corridors B, C and D in Terminal 3. They can be hard to find, but they are there.
