Travelling to Málaga

As the airport increases its flight capacity, including more direct routes from over 12 U.K. airports, the Costa del Sol is consolidating its status as a favourite for holiday-makers and homeowners. The airport is an important hub for several low-cost European airlines and is a gateway to one of Europe's most popular tourist destinations.

Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport is a convenient option for visitors to the Andalucian region, due to the sheer number of international flights operating at its terminals.

It is also ideally positioned close to the A7 motorway and can be easily accessed by bus, taxi, train or private car. In addition, there are several car rental companies offering vehicle hire from bases at the main Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport terminal, where you can secure some great deals on available cars.

In common with a large number of commercial airports in Spain, Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport is operated by Aena Aeropuertos S.A. and is an especially popular destination for passangers travelling from the U.K., Ireland, France, Holland, Belgium and the Nordic countries (Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway).

New routes are being introduced on a regular and ongoing basis.

News Update April 2018

Terminal 2 is to receive a €6 million improvement, modernising the check-in foyer, departure lounge, arrivals area and intermediate floors to the north and south. The project is due to start in the near future and last approximately 20 months, transforming Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport into one of the largest air travel hubs in Europe.

New Routes from March 2018

Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport will be increasing its flights over the spring and summer period, with more European destinations from Malmo, Riga, Sofia, Warsaw, Valletta and Bilbao via Volotea starting from 23 March 2018.

Terminal 3

Terminal 3 was opened in 2010, significantly increasing the airport’s flight capacity. It is possible to walk between the main terminal buildings but there is also a large cargo terminal and a General Aviation Terminal for private aeroplanes within the complex.
