Smoking Airside

Where you can smoke in Manchester Airport

While you’re unable to smoke on any flight and you cannot smoke within any of the terminal buildings, we’ve tried to create as many opportunities as possible for guests to smoke before their flight while prioritising the safety of the airfield. All three terminal buildings have smoking areas outside that can be used before check-in and after arrivals. The use of E-cigarettes is forbidden within the Airport.

Smoking In Terminal 1

Once you’ve checked-in and made your way through security in Terminal 1, you’ll be able to use the outdoor airside smoking area which is located near the food court.

Smoking In Terminal 2

The smoking area is located on level upper level of the departure lounge, this can be accessed via the escalators or lifts in the central area opposite World Duty Free.

Smoking In Terminal 3

Unfortunately, there are no outdoor smoking areas in the airside section Terminal 3. We recommend that smokers use the designated areas outside of the terminal before going through check-in
