UK / All major Airports /

Not sure if the thread title helps the 'search process', but I've just been shown this link of the rules pertaining at all major UK Airports. Given National legislation about No Smoking in Public areas indoors, I'm surprised how many exceptions are listed. I can only assume they are external areas, hopefully with a bit of weather protection.

The link provides more details, but the bare facts are as follows:

BHX and MAN T1 are both balcony type arrangements with wire mesh surrounds to satisfy the legislation that smoking areas must be at least 50% open. They can be rather cold, but at least you don't get rained on.

LBA (Leeds Bradford International, UK).

Wow! An airside smoking facility in UK? OK, it's HORRIBLE, but the facility is there if you put a 1 coin in the machinery ... which only just works! Likely to be of minimal interest to the community at large, but posted here (is this the right place, Mods?) for reference anyway.

Hidden away behind "The Beer House" by Gate 7, and decently signposted ...




Insert 1 coin. The turnstile didn't re-lock after my wife passed through, so we only paid once!



What you get ... yeuch!



Exit door ... which was also dysfunctional. Someone came in that way!!
