As the busy season for 2016 gets underway way we can already feel that this is going to be a bumper year. The airport services will start to get stretched but in all honesty most of the time everything goes smoothly. it’s hard to imagine on a busy day in August that the airport is a virtual ghost town during January!
Malaga Airport is a modern airport located just 8km from Malaga City . . ..it is also the main airport for all resorts on the Costa Del Sol and is one of the busiest airports in Spain: in 2015 Malaga handled over 14 Million passengers with 108.897 flight operations.
It serves all the main tourist resorts and towns along the coast, Torremolinos (10 minutes), Benalmadena (15 minutes), Fuengirola (20 minutes), Calahonda (25 minutes), Marbella (30 minutes), Puerto Banus (40 minutes) and Estepona (60 minutes).
There is a train station which although brilliant for Malaga City, is no good for many tourist resorts as the train ends at Fuengirola….so no use for those of you who are bound for Marbella and beyond! Buses, taxis and of course car hire are the other ways of getting to and from the airport…you can get all the transport information here.
The airport is made up of three terminals. Terminals 1 is hardly used any more and terminal 2 & terminal 3 are where UK flights depart and arrive: don’t worry though, although they are listed as different terminals they are all connected internally and easy to access.
Once you are through security there are plenty of places to eat and drink including Starbucks…if you are on a flight to the UK you will need to head towards the departure gates marked C (or D in the summer!) – there is also passport control to bear in mind. All internal flights leave from the gates marked D.
As we have lived here for a number of years we have also written quite a lot of pages on general things such as shopping, restaurants we have visited etc..a personal journal if you like!
We have an active Facebook page and are more than happy to answer any questions you may have or help in any way we can.
