After Security

Update from Tadhg, May 2023: Two smoking areas after security. One at the back of Bar11 just after duty free, no code required. Second one at gate 31 behind The Beer House, pin required but is displayed above the keypad.

Update from Jonny S., October 2022: Newcastle NCL airport. There is an airside smoking area at the furthest end of Bar 11 from its entrance. Bar 11 is the first food and drink place on the right after you get through the duty free shopping area. You do not have to buy anything in Bar 11 and there is no PIN code necessary to get into the smoking area.

Update from, smoking area still behind "Bar 11". Take a right once entered, there is a metal door with code required to enter, purchase from bar will get you this code. It is pretty busy so if you just stand there somebody will come along or leave this area. Otherwise buy from the bar. Photos below show areas entrance.


Smoking Area is now Behind Bar 11, not behind the Beer House Pub. Feedback from Marcus on the 16th November 2017.
