About Malaga Airport

The Malaga Airport Statistics are in and 2o17 ended with a whopping 18,628,876 passengers passing through the airport.  This is no surprise as the roads were busy, the restaurants were packed and generally there was a great atmosphere everywhere along the Costa Del Sol.  We could see via our social media sites that people were planning to return for their Half Term and Christmas Holidays. 

Malaga is the fourth busiest Airport in Spain, just behind Madrid, Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca.  Last year  (2017), Malaga Airport handled a record breaking 18,628,876 number of  passengers, an increase of 11.7% on 2016 with 137,092  flight operations an increase of 10.9% on 2016.  You can see Malaga Statistics for 2018 here.

Located just 8km from Malaga City, it is also the main airport for all resorts on the Costa Del Sol; Torremolinos (10 minutes), Benalmadena (15 minutes), Fuengirola (20 minutes), Calahonda (25 minutes), Marbella (30 minutes), Puerto Banus (40 minutes) and Estepona (60 minutes).  It´s brilliant if you fancy a weekend away in Malaga City, which we highly recommend!

Malaga Airport Terminals

The airport is made up of three terminals.  T1, T2 & T3.  T1 is hardly used any more.  T2 & T3 are where the UK flights depart and arrive and are connected.  It´s just one huge area so please do not panic about travelling from one terminal to another.    Once you are through security there are plenty of places to eat and drink including Starbucks and Dani Garcia Deli Bar.  There also some pretty good shopping including Victoria Secrets, Gap and Desigual.    There is also Passport Control to bear in mind, so don’t spend too long in the shops and keep an eye on your gate and boarding time!  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!).  All internal flights leave from the gates marked D.

Other Airports close to the Costa Del Sol

Whilst we hope that you choose to travel through Malaga Airport, which is the best airport for many destinations on the Costa Del Sol, maybe the flight times don’t work for you, the cost is too high, or maybe you fancy travelling through Spain and seeing some other fabulous places.  Well, there is Granada & Seville Airports (2 hours away),  Jerez Airport (1.5 hours away) and also Gibraltar Airport which is actually closer to areas like Tarifa, Manilva, Duquesa and Estepona.  If you want any advice on places to visit, just ask.  Andalucia is a fantastic area to travel around with some great Cities to see.
