After Security Smoking

Update from Maiski , May 2023: 6-person smoking booth near gate 1. Photo Below

Update from John P, Dec 2021: Krakow's smoking cabinet is now even smaller and can only hold 4 people with a really tight squeeze (opposite gate 2 now).

Update from Patryk H, August 2021: Smoking cabinet by the gate 18 no longer there. No smoking area for gate 12-18 if u pass second border security.

Official Information from Airport, August 2021: Tak, palarnia jest otwarta, ale może w niej przebywać tylko jedna osoba. (Yes, the smoking room is open, but only one person is allowed in it.)

Update from John P., Jan 2020: Krakow airport has a small smoking cubicle by gate 1 in the main terminal. It only holds about 10 and is a bit heavy on the smoke in there but better than nothing. There is also one at gate 18 too.
