Pick up and Drop Off services at Malaga Airport
There are a number of car parks available at Malaga Airport that are used for picking up passengers, as there is no official designated pick up area. There are six parking areas for visitors and passengers, three of which are better suited for picking up people at the airport. These include the general parking area in P1 (Short to medium stay parking), Express parking in P2 and VIP parking which is available in T3. The express parking zone is also used as the drop off area. We’ve put together some handy information on each of these car parks:
General parking – P1
The general parking area in P1 is the cheapest paid option. However, the car park itself is a little bit further away from the airport. It can take up to 10 minutes to walk from P1 to the departures and arrivals areas, meaning you may have to pay more if you are parked there for longer. There are however a lot of places to park here, with 1471 spaces available – 47 of these are also reserved for disabled passengers.
Express parking – P2
If you’re just making a quick trip, then the express parking area in P2 is ideal. As a strictly short-term car park, this area is designed for a 30 minutes maximum stay. If you need to stay for longer, you will of course have to pay more. However, the first 15 minutes are free of charge – perfect if your friends and family have collected their luggage and have already made their way to the car park.
The express parking area is also used for dropping off passengers at Malaga Airport, as the 15 minute limit makes it a convenient place to do so. The entrance to the car park can get a little bit busy as it is used for both pick ups and drop offs, but it is still an easy place to access with plenty of parking available. The car park is also situated opposite the T2 departures area and has access to T3.
To enter the express parking car park, you will need to get a ticket from the barrier at the upper departures area. Continue to follow the lane and you will be able to access the express parking. Remember that as long as you stay in P2 for less than 15 minutes, you will be able to leave free of charge. If you stay for longer, you will need to validate your ticket at the machines before you leave.
VIP parking – T3
If you have a bit of time to spend while waiting to pick up your friends and family, you could take a look at the VIP car park at T3. The cost for longer stays is more expensive than the general parking or express parking areas, but there are also a number of extra benefits to take advantage of. If you leave your car here, you can collect it upon returning from the arrivals area. You can also arrange for car valeting, vehicle maintenance, car washing and more.
