Before Security Smoking

Smoking is only permitted in designated areas outside the terminals. which must be at least 4 meters away from the building.

Update from Pat on the 15th Jukly 2018: Coolangatta Airport has 3 areas outside the terminal one at each end and 1 past the rental car pick up booths in the carpark (covered) - this one is directly out front of the main entrance and closest to the airport. There are none after security.

After Security Smoking

There are no smoking facilities inside the terminal

Feedback from Sammy, April 2023: Why you force smokers even in transit not to smoke? This is totally rubbish and rubbish. flight 10 hours and transit 3 hours and can’t smoke! This totally rubbish and we always find way to smoke u idiots. You don’t have the rights to stop passengers from smoking. It’s our choice not your choice…..

For connecting flights you must enter Australia and smoke outside the terminal then go through Security again for your flight.
