Smoking at Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG)

Airport Rating


Before and After Security Smoking

Smoking is only permitted in designated areas outside the terminals.

Update on the 2nd March 2018 from Ankur Banerjee: There's a smoking area in T2 at PVG next to Gate D73. Follow the escalator up to the 2nd floor and follow the signs next to the cafe.

As of the 7th APR there is an outdoor smoking room near departure gate 23. There are car-style plug lighters, which helps as the Chinese confiscate all lighters and matches(!) from arriving passengers.

 Do not bring expensive lighters on person or in carry on baggage. Feedback provided on the 13th April 2017. No name provided.

Since 1st of March 2017 the airport has put in force the new regulations by law, that all Hotels, Restaurants etc. are smoke free.

There is a smoking area. Recent feedback from Dan on the 30th March 2017: The smoking point is at the 2nd level after security checks. Follow the signage and it will bring you up the escalator

They have though a newly opened outdoor smoking area on the first floor after the security check, near the entry to the Air China Lounge, behind a Restaurant (follow the signs).

Thanx to Daniel for the feedback. 7th March 2017.
