Travelling to Malaga

As the airport increases its flight capacity and to include more direct routes from over 12 UK airports, the Costa del Sol is becoming a growing favourite for holiday-makers and homeowners. The airport is an important centre for several low-cost European airlines and is a gateway into one of the most popular tourist destinations on the continent.

Malaga Airport is a popular choice for visitors to the Spanish Autonomous Community of Andalusia, due to the sheer number of international flights that fly through the terminals.

In addition, it is ideally positioned close to the A7 motorway and can be easily accessed by bus, taxi, train or private car. There are also a number of car rental companies offering car hire based at the main Malaga Airport terminal where you can get some great deals on available cars.

In common with a large number of commercial airports in Spain, Malaga Airport is operated by Aena Aeropuertos S.A. and is a popular destination for those travelling from the UK, Ireland, France, Holland and Belgium.

New routes are being introduced all the time.
