Official Information from airport

It is allowed to smoke outdoors in several clearly designated smoking areas. Partially at the yellow smoking zones between the doors outside Terminal 2 and Terminal 3, and additionally at the two outdoor smoking-terraces, respectively situated next to the entrance to the B-gates and close to gate E135 after Security.

Two smoking cabins are also to be found after the passport control at the C-gates, right above 7/11.


The same rules apply for smoking of E-cigarettes.

It can be hard for fellow travellers and the airport staff to distinguish between normal cigarettes and E-cigarettes, and we have chosen this solution to avoid unfortunate situations, where passengers smoking E-cigarettes will be accused of disobeying the airport smoking policies.
