Smoking at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol

Smoking is prohibited at the airport, except in designated smoking areas. We comply with the Dutch Tobacco Act, which stipulates that all public areas, including food-service outlets, must be smoke free.

Smoking areas before passport control

Smoking is prohibited in all public areas of the airport situated before passport control.
Smoking is permitted outside the terminal building in the designated smoking areas. The smoking areas are indicated by a white dotted line and contain ashtrays. Smoking areas have been installed at various locations on Jan Delleartplein (outside in front of Schiphol Plaza) and on the departures level.
Perimeter roads and the aprons form an exception to the rule: these areas must be kept smoke free to ensure airport safety.

Smoking areas beyond passport control

Beyond passport control, smoking is permitted only in the designated smoking areas, most of which are located at food service outlets. These smoking areas are enclosed rooms with their own exhaust-ventilation systems. To find the nearest smoking area, please consult the signs in the lounges.

  • Networkbar cabin
  • Murphy's bar
  • Galaxy bar
