You can smoke at Lisbon Airport. Both terminal buildings have smoking areas. Terminal 1 has at least two smoking areas and terminal 2 has one.
Smoking areas at Lisbon Airport are called Espacos fumadores. They are indicated on signs throughout the terminal building.
There are two smoking rooms in terminal 1. This is the main terminal that most passengers will frequent. Especially when you’re on a layover. It is the biggest of the two terminal buildings, therefore it can be challenging to find a smoking area close to you.
- Gate 19 (currently closed)
- Gate 47 (only electric an closed after 8 PM)
- ANA lounge (entrance is € 36)
June 2023 update – This smoking room is closed for refurbishment.
The first smoking area is in between gates 19 – 21. When you are in the proximity of this small pier, you will find that it is clearly indicated on the signs above the walkway.
You will be surprised by this smoking area. It is a large room with lots of room to move around. Another plus side is that it is close to the shopping plaza.
Smoking room for e-smoking at terminal 1
The other smoking area is near gate 47, at the far end of the terminal. This is quite a walk from the plaza. Very convenient if your flight departs from any of these gates.
This smoking area is only for users of e-cigarettes. It is also closed after 8 PM. Keep this in mind. You can buy e-cigarettes at the smoking area.
Because of its location, you will find a lot less people over here. Perfect if you want a relaxing smoke in tranquility.
Smoking area at the ANA lounge
If you’re looking for a great place to unwind, go to the ANA lounge. Go to gate 22 in terminal 1. You will find an escalator and elevator near Starbucks. These will take you up to the lounge.
It is not free to access the lounge. You will have to pay 36 euros to get access, unless you’re traveling with a suitable airline (like KLM, Delta, Turkish, etc.). Traveling with the right airline will get you a discount or free access. If you travel business class or first class, you will get free access.
It is a cozy smoking area that has a few high tables with chairs. The wood-look gives it a Scandinavian vibe. Not a bad place to have a smoke.
The lounge offers food, drinks, internet access, showers and a smoking room. Worth the money if you have a long layover.
Located at the other side of the airport is terminal 2. Mostly used by low-cost airlines like Transavia, Ryanair or easyJet. This terminal does not have a lot of amenities or shops but it is getting improved.
Luckily, terminal 2 does have a smoking room. It might be hard to find, but it is there. It is close to the security checks.
