Belfast International offers smoking

A £1 fee has been introduced by Belfast International Airport for passengers, who have passed through security checks, wishing to smoke a cigarette before boarding their flight.  Or you can take a chance on the length of the various checks and have a smoke for free in a designated area at the front of the terminal building free of charge. 

However, the airport says the levy has been introduced to offset the cost of building the new smoking area which is situated by the Bar des Voyageurs.  Those looking for a calming nicotine fix will be able to slot a £1 coin into a machine that operates the doors of the smoking area.

A controversial £1 fee for drivers picking up and dropping off passengers at the terminal was introduced in July 2010.

At the time, the move was branded by the Consumer Council as "unfair." www.belfastairport.com
