Before and After Security Smoking

Smoking is only permitted in designated areas outside the terminals.


Update from Grega B., 27th May 2019: The D-gates (non-Schengen) smoking area is, as stated, entered near gate D15, but the area itself is actually behind the bar next to D22. To avoid confusion - there is no access from the bar, only through automatic doors next to D15. The picture is accurate. However, there is no lounge beyond passport control.

Jan 2019 update from Terry: A second smoking area is now open for those using 'D'gates. It is located between gate D15 and "Joe and the Juice" shop. Photo below.

Feedback from Craig in the 21st Feb 2018: You can smoke by D22 departures outside.

Information from Terry: The airport is actually Keflavik (KEF) and for years never had a smoking area but since last year it does! A very nice airport (although like everything in Iceland very expensive) and the smoking area after security is opposite the toilets in the food and bar area on the left side of the terminal as you enter after walking through the duty free store. You can take your drink from the bars into the smoking area.


Update from Grega B., 27th May 2019: The Schengen area smoking is right behind the escalator access to Saga lounge, next to the elevator, between gates A and C, directly opposite passport control.
