Malaga Airport is a modern, newly built airport...I am so thankful that they finished the work before the current economic crisis set in...this modern airport is a far more pleasant environment than the old one!
Located just 8kms from Malaga City...this is also the main airport for the Costa Del Sol and serves all the main tourist resorts and towns along the coast, Torremolinos (10 mins), Benalmadena (15 mins), Fuengirola (20 mins), Calahonda (25 mins), Marbella (30 mins), Puerto Banus (40 mins) and Estepona (60 mins).
There is a train station which although brilliant for Malaga City, for resort tourists the train ends at Fuengirola....no good for those of you who are Marbella bound! 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.

Malaga Airport Terminals
The airport is made up of 3 terminals, Terminal 1 is hardly used anymore, Terminal 2 and 3 are connected internally and apart from the fcat one looks an awful lot older than the other you wouldn't necessarily know whether you were in one terminal or another.
Now here's the tricky part to understand...most UK bound flights check in desks are located in Terminal 2...but once you have have checked you have a long walk through to Terminal 3 to go through security...I am not sure why it is this way but it is..most other European and Internal flights check in at Terminal 3.
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 anyway we can.
