After Security Smoking

Update from Klaus, April 2022: Update 04/2022: there is no smoking possibility after security check. At least when flying an inside EU flight. When you leave EU there is a different access to the gates but you cannot overlook the whole area from the EU part.

Update, Feb 2020 from Powny R.: There is definitely no smoking area currently after security. I checked everywhere and asked staff here. They do state on their website that they have one but they don't.

10.08.16 - Latest update, according to one of our users Martin Robertonson, there is now no smoking lounge after security.

The old smoking area while located after security was before passport control, so if flying outside the EU or to the UK then you would have to leave time for them to check your passport. This now seems to be closed.

For connecting flights you will need to enter Portugal and smoke outside terminal then go through Security again for your flight.
