Smoking facilities after Security

Terminal 1:

Feedback from Coti L. on the 25th sept 2018: I wanted to share that there are 3 smoking areas in Barcelona El Prat, all of them downstairs, 2 in boarding gates A (im in one near A22 just after Zara) and there’s another terrace in boarding gates C, none in B

Barcelona BCN T1, cafe/bar outside with big terrace confirmed near Burger King, 90% certain it was near A22. Update from Chris on the 6th June 2018.

Update from DBi on the 9th May 2018: In the airport you have smoking areas while going to gates A,B,C. Its outside. If you need to take international flight (gate D and E), wait downstairs otherwise you cannot smoke anymore.

Tip from Terry: Barcelona T1 (newer terminal) has indeed a large outdoor smoking area BUT ONLY for gates A, B and C...which I used before. Last week I was flying from gate D (same rules for gate E) and for whatever reason here you have no access to get downstairs (believe me I tried) to smoke. So for any smokers flying out of T1 BCN, check which gate area you depart from...A,B or C...your OK, D or E and you need to read this carefully...Immediately after clearing security you go left for D, right for E, or downstairs for A, B or C...GO DOWNSTAIRS!!! You can get back up again (as far as I know) and besides A,B and C have ALL the shops, only McDonalds and small store for D area, much better spending your time downstairs. 

Terminal 2:

Just to let you know that there is no smoking area at T2 on Barcelona El Prat. We asked 3 different staff members and they finally sent us out. 😞 Update from Lubov C. on the 9th Oct 2018.
