Fancy a cigarette before your flight?

Fancy a cigarette before your flight? That will be £1 if you’re at Belfast International Airport.

The airport issued a statement this week saying: “We recognised that there was a demand for a smoking facility from some customers given that all public places (including airports) are now, and have been for a number of years, non-smoking.

“We are responding to that demand. However, providing a specialist facility for a relatively small number of users is expensive to build and to maintain so it is not unreasonable that a small charge should be levied for the use of the facility.”

Passengers who don’t want to pay can have a cigarette outside the terminal building, but this is land-side. Once they go through to air-side, they have to pay the fee.

Other chargers at the airport include a £1 drop-off fee when arriving by car and £1 for plastic bags to clear liquid items through security.
