The arrivals area is in T3 (Terminal 3) downstairs. There are still a few domestic flights that land in the old Terminal (T2) which is a few minutes walk from T3. It’s well signposted and can be easily reached by travelators, lifts and escalators.

The Terminals are all in the same building. No shuttles are required. You will be directed into the  T3 (Malaga Terminal 3) to clear security and collect your baggage.

If you come from a country that is a member of the Schengen Agreement, you won’t have to clear security. Follow the signs and to Baggage Reclaim.

Baggage Reclaim

Once you have gone through passport control, you need to take the escalators down to the baggage reclaim hall, where there are 11 baggage reclaim carousels in Terminal 2. In Terminal 3, there are 7 Carousels for European Union, 4 for Non-EU and 1 for special baggage.

Note:  If you have been on a Non-EU Flight or a connecting flight from outside the EU via Madrid or any other Internal Airport, your luggage will be on the Carousel for Non-EU Flights which is in a box area you will collect your luggage and then go through customs. You will be asked if you have anything you need to declare.   If you are arriving on an internal flight, you will pass through the shops in the Departure Lounge and follow signs for Baggage Reclaim.

Make sure you follow the signs, even if you only have hand luggage, as this is the way out for everyone. Many passengers travel with hand luggage only nowadays, so generally, your luggage comes through pretty quick.

If you have young kids, take care and don’t let them climb up onto the carousel. Also, do keep an eye on all your bags and belongings at this point. It’s so easy to leave your trolley and bag to grab your suitcase coming around on the carousel—the last thing. Be sure you have the right case!

Car Hire at Malaga Arrivals

If you have hired a car from one of the car hire companies within Malaga airport terminal, you need to head downstairs to the car hire desks as you collect your bags.

Malaga Airport Car Hire Off Site

If you chose an off-site Malaga Car Hire Company, you will be given instructions on where to meet them at the time of booking and will probably be collected by one of their Shuttle Buses.

Where do you get the Shuttle Bus? As you leave Malaga Arrivals, turn left and walk for a minute or so, where you will see the collection points. You no longer go to the tunnel. Keep an eye out for the company vehicle! The same applies if using off-site Car Parking.

Booked a Private Transfer?

If you have arranged a private transfer to collect you, then continue to the Malaga Airport Arrivals Hall. This area is also where friends and family wait as well as Private Drivers holding signs displaying your name. Check with the company you have booked through as they may ask to meet you somewhere else.
