Smoking at Göteborg Landvetter Airport (GOT)

Airport Rating


Before and After Security Smoking

Smoking is only permitted in designated areas outside the terminals.

Update from Niels on the 6th July 2019: There is now a new stringent policy regarding smoking in front of the terminal. Designated areas only, and they're not easy to find. Smoking area behind security remains as is. Here is an updated terminal map.

There is one smoking room at the airport, across from Gates 19A/20A, right before the passport check, and right before baggage claim (if you’re arriving). It’s quite a walk from e.g., Gate 11, and no conveyor belts to transport you there.

 Once you clear the passport check for non-Schengen flights, there’s no more smoking according to the website (and contrary to the map posted here). This includes flights to the UK. There is not usually a line for the passport check, as the airport has very few non-Schengen destinations. So one can wait with the passport check until just before boarding commences. Perhaps one could even leave the non-Schengen zone and re-enter, but one should double-check that with airport staff.

 Sometimes gates 19/20 are used for non-Schengen flights (mostly to the UK), and then those specific gates are separated with a glass wall from the area in which the smoking room is located. The only way to reach them from gate 19B/20B, as they are then designated, would be back through the passport checkpoint. Gates 11-18 still offer access to the smoking room on those occasions. But mind the walk from gates 11-14.

Feedback from Niels on the 10th July 2018.
