If the person you are meeting is not there when you arrive at the meeting point, there is an intercom facility to ask for assistance.
Depending on the level of assistance you require, your assistant will accompany you through check-in, security and right up to your seat, and help with any other services you may require while at the airport.
When you arrive at Malaga Airport, you will be assisted to disembark, collect your luggage and take you to whichever meeting point you need to go to within the airport.
