Finally, we have Fast Track at Malaga Airport. You need to purchase your Fast Track Malaga tickets online at a cost of 5.50€ per person. This has recently increased as it was just 4€ before.
Is it worth it? Well, we have lived here for 17 years now and have rarely queued for longer than 8/9 minutes. It often feels a lot longer than it actually is. So, unless it´s peak time and we are in a rush, I doubt we will personally purchase Fast Track.
You may be able to use Malaga Fast Track if you are flying with certain airlines (listed below) and who are Business Class Card Holders or similar. When you check in, it should state clearly that you can enter the Fast Track Lane which you will see when approaching Security. If you do not have the boarding pass with the correct stamp, they will not let you through.
If you have a QR code on your mobile phone, you do not have to print the tickets out. If you need to print tickets off then you can now print them at LockMate, the left luggage service.
Refunds are not allowed once you have purchased your tickets.
The tickets are valid for 7 days.
Passengers travelling with children will have preferential, free access to the family security checkpoints and kids under 2 do not need a Fast Track Ticket.
(this may vary)
When you book online and check in, you will be told if Fast Track is available to you and you may also be eligible for free access to the VIP Lounge which is a nice, large, quiet area with free wifi access. A great space to sit and relax if your flight is delayed, or if you need to catch up on some work.
Airport security can be a stressful, but it doesn´t have to be if you take some time to prepare in advance by placing all your phones, wallets, keys, jewellery in your bag and not in the trays.
Have your liquids ready in a clear bag and make sure it´s not too big. Be sure you have no water or other drinks lurking around in your bags.
Remove belts, watches, big necklaces and phones from your pockets and place safely inside your bag or coat pocket. Security guards may shout “put your phones in the tray”. That´s only if you have them in your hand. They do not need to go in the tray. Put them in your bag where it´s safe.
