Malaga Airport Smoking Area

Malaga Airport Smoking Area

Many passengers who travel from Malaga Airport ask the same question: Is there a smoking area at Malaga Airport?

Next, we give you all the information on where to smoke at Malaga Airport and useful information on restrictions when carrying tobacco by plane and you can avoid possible mishap.

 Can I smoke inside Malaga Airport?

For several years now this has not been possible within the Malaga Airport facilities, which is a problem for some passengers who have to wait for their return home. If you need to smoke, you must do so outside the terminals.

Where can I smoke at Malaga Airport?

There are several spaces set up outside Malaga Airport, just the right next to the access doors, where smoking is allowed before passing passenger control and accessing the boarding areas. These spaces have stone benches to sit on and the places to put out and deposit cigarettes. 

What happens if I have passed the passenger control and I want to go out to smoke again?

Malaga Airport is not one of the largest in the world, so you can easily leave in case of an urgent need to smoke. But, you need to keep in mind that the departure and return to passenger control can take 30 minutes, so you will have to consider if you have plenty of time to do that and return back to the boarding area to catch your flight on time.

 Buying tobacco at Malaga Airport

If you are still outside the Airport, we recommend that you go to the Estanco (tobacco shop), located near one of the entrances to the Parking. There you will make sure to pay the same price as in any establishment in the city, and also, you can buy packages separately, without having to buy a cardboard.

If, on the other hand, you are inside the boarding area waiting to catch your flight, you can go to one of the Duty Free stations situated around the Airport. There you can find numerous local and international brands, but remember that you can only buy whole cardboards.
