Smoking in Mexico City Airport

Can you smoke in any area of the airport. We have a 2 hour layover in Mexico city and hubby wants to smoke. If he has to go out of the airport to do this will there be enough time?

There is nowhere inside the airport to smoke.

On your inward journey: You will have to clear immigration and customs in Mexico City and recheck your bags at a special counter (just like you do if returning to the U.S. and your final destination is not the first U.S. airport you land at). Once you have done that you normally turn round, pass through security and head for your next gate. IF YOU HAVE TIME you could alternatively walk straight for about 20 yds and you will be outside. If you have to change terminals yu will be rushed though.

Returning home there are no immigration/customs at MEX so on landing from your domestic flight you could just walk outside the terminal and have a smoke (and two hours is plenty of time).

There used to be a small designated smoking area at the airport, but during my last two visits smoking had been prohibited throughout.....you can step outside, but watch your stuff like you would anywhere.....
