Amsterdam Airport Smoking Area

Unfortunately, Schiphol has closed it’s smoking room mid-2020. Passengers who fly to Schiphol will not be able to smoke in the terminal building.

When you have a layover, you can go outside of customs and smoke just outside of Schiphol Plaza. There is a big square over there with bus stops. That is the only possibility to smoke at Schiphol Airport. This is still the case in 2022.

Changes are big that passengers traveling through Europe with a Skyteam carrier will have a layover at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. Located to the south-west of the Dutch capital, Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is one of the largest HUBs in Europe. Only London Heathrow and Paris Charles de Gaulle handle more passengers per year. This makes Schiphol an important player in aviation.

The old smoking room was located next to the D-pier. Most transfers are made from the D-pier, which made it an often frequented smoking room. Below are pictures of the old smoking area .

    This is a discrimination for smokers, I m very frequent traveler and stopped using KLM since this and moved rather to Lufthansa, because they respect everybody, not like sitting at AMS airport for 6 hours layover without smoking.

  2. Ramesh kurpad says:

    It is reducilous, considering smokers as untouchable or they are doing some crime. Then stop manufacturing and selling of cigarettes every where in Amsterdam . It is a bad decision of Amsterdam airport authority.

    You can smoke on the terrace outside at La Place. Or in designated smoking areas. Only option at schipol. Murphys where they had the last smoking place is closed probably for good.

    Absolute disgrace. The airport staff are unhelpful, rude and unwilling to even communicate with you. The complete opposite of the Dutch culture. With 10hrs+ worth of delays being refused to go out for a smoke or even get some fresh air is a little bit beyond a joke. In the capital of the world for smoking the airport is smoke free… what a joke.
