The new suburban train station in the new Terminal T3 building links the airport with the city centre in one direction and the resorts of Torremolinos, Benalmádena and Fuengirola on the Costa del Sol in the other.
The new train station is situated underground and accessed via escalators. It is well signposted and can be reached via the square outside arrivals or outside departures. Before the station entry barriers you will see several self-service tickets machines on your right where you can buy your tickets.
If you go to Malaga Renfe at Maria Zambrano Station which is just 4 stops from the airport then you could change and go all the way to Madrid, Seville or Barcelona by train.
