Update from Jonny P: March 2022: From the main airside retail shopping area, go up the escalator next to Boss and Tommy Hilfiger to the Food Court, then through the door marked The Terrace and turn right. There is a large smoking area, large parts of which are covered. The Terrace cafe isn't open (though it is 09.00). The smoking area has its own toilets.
