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.


Continued feedback from Glenn B: Oct 2022: After passport control to D gates.There is a white door near the stairs that is clearly marked as a smoking area.
