Terminal 3:

They still exist outside departures but arrival one is gone Diversion from arrivals is to departure zones Btw if you try and be clever and go to smoking zone in flight connections you can get there easily from main T3 but have to go back through connections security not recommended. Update from Mike F. on the 20th Sept 2018.

Unfortunately terminal 3 has no smoking area, but a suitable place is being investigated as we speak.

For connecting flights in Terminal 3 you must enter UK and smoke outside terminal then go through Security again for your flight.
