If you follow our busy Facebook Page, you may have found some posts regarding Assistance at Malaga Airport and generally the feedback is fantastic.
We recently spoke to the people from “Sin Barerras” ourselves and have to say we were most impressed with the help and information we received, particularly from one lady who spoke perfect English. In fact, wandering around, many of the ´Sin Barreras´ staff were chatting away to people and seemed really nice and friendly.
There have been a few people mention about problems they face with long waiting times and not the best service. Instantly we saw one problem and that is the position of the Main Help Desk in Terminal 3, just by Security.
This area is extremely busy and quite stressful with people queuing for security, people arriving at the terminal, people at the cafes and people asking for help. There was also a long queue at the Information Point where you need to confirm that you are at the airport ready for your assistance.
So our advise is to enter via Terminal 2 and just over to the right, in the centre of T2 & T3 is the main Passenger Assistance Area called Sin Barreras.
There are 4 Steps For Assistance
A few comments that people have had to say about the service..
“We have always had assistance at Malaga airport they have always been helpful and friendly x”
“Used T2 this week excellent treatment well done managed to get buggy as 3 of us needed assistance”
“My mother had pre-booked Assistance for her flight yesterday and it was a treat everything went well . A Big Thank You”
Whilst there, we also asked about kids with Autism & Aspergers and she said of course they can assist with this too. The problems come when passengers haven’t booked this Free Service or if they haven´t booked the correct service.
All this information can be found on the Official Aena Website for Airports in Spain
