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 required.  You will be directed into the  T3 (Malaga Terminal 3) to clear security and collect your baggage.

If you are coming from mainland Europe where the country is a member of the Schengen Agreement you won’t have to clear security, just 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 where 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.

Do make sure you follow the signs even if you only have hand luggage as this the way out for everyone. Many passengers travel 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.  Last thing….be sure you have the right case!
