Smoking in African airports is a topic that is influenced by various smoke-free regulations, cultural norms and health issues. Africa, being a diverse continent with different countries and regions, presents a unique landscape when it comes to airport smoking.

In some African countries, smoking is still widely accepted and designated smoking areas can be found at many airports. These smoking areas can be located in outdoor areas away from the main terminal building and can be equipped with ashtrays, seats and shelters for smokers.

However, it is important to note that the availability and quality of these designated smoking areas can vary significantly from airport to airport and may not always meet the expectations of smoking travellers.

On the other hand, there are also African countries where smoking is strictly regulated and smoking is prohibited at airports in all indoor and outdoor areas. This means that travelers who smoke may have difficulty finding suitable places to smoke on airport premises and may need to leave the airport premises to smoke, if local laws allow it.

Here is all the information you need to find a smoking area in an African airport.
