Malaga Airport is a modern, newly built airport…I am so thankful that they finished the work before the current economic crisis set in…this modern airport is a far more pleasant environment than the old one!

Located just 8kms from Malaga City…this is also the main airport for the Costa Del Sol and serves all the main tourist resorts and towns along the coast, Torremolinos (10 mins), Benalmadena (15 mins), Fuengirola (20 mins), Calahonda (25 mins), Marbella (30 mins), Puerto Banus (40 mins) and Estepona (60 mins).

There is a train station which although brilliant for Malaga City, for resort tourists the train ends at Fuengirola….no good for those of you who are Marbella bound! Buses, taxis and of course car hire are the other ways of getting to and from the airport.

The airport is made up of three terminals. Terminals 1 and 2 are hardly used any more and terminal 3 is the new one where UK flights depart and arrive: all are connected internally and easy to access.

Once you are through security there are plenty of places to eat and drink including Starbucks…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!) – there is also passport control to bear in mind. All internal flights leave from the gates marked D.
