Get to and from Malaga Airport

Easy to follow information on travel to and from Malaga Airport from expert Mike Drury.  I’ve used the airport and all its transport options for the last 40 years. Get advice here on access to the airport, short and long term parking, buses, trains to and from Malaga airport and taxi connections to all points on the Costa del Sol.

If you are taking the bus into Malaga city centre or catching the Malaga airport  bus to Marbella bus station  you’ll find all the timetables and online booking services you need right here.

Just off the A7 Autovía Mediterraneo the big modern airport is only 8kms from the Malaga city centre. Most flights arrive and leave from the T3 terminal.  Malaga’s airport code is AGP

Travelling to or from the airport? Book your rental car on the Gomarbella care hire booking engine.  Make use of my personal recommendations for car hire at Malaga Airport With over 25 car hire companies offering car hire services at Malaga airport, it pays to shop around and get the hire car which best suits your needs and pocket.

Let the train take the strain. Malaga airport train station is an easy suitcase trundle, less than a hundred metres from the Arrivals Hall exit door. The C1 train line runs right past the airport which is one of the last train stops on the line from Fuengirola train station right into the heart of the capital at the Maria Zambrano train station. If you are travelling to your resort between Fuengirola and Marbella then check here how Vince got to Riviera del Sol by train and by bus. 

Taking a taxi? There are normally around 200 spotless taxis waiting at the  airport with the taxi pick up point not more than fifty metres from the Arrivals Hall exit door. Every car now has a meter and the driver also carries an official booklet stating exactly what the fare will be to your destination.  If you are travelling beyond Fuengirola ask the driver to take the toll road as far as Marbella, it is much safer and faster and will only add around 8 euros to the fare in summer.

Perhaps an airport transfer is what suits you or your group best. Book your  expert, high class personalised door to door transfer service  or courtesy shuttle bus here.

Pick up and drop off at the airport by car? There’s a very neat kiss and fly drop off and collection zone at the airport. Cars are allowed 15 minutes free access to drop passengers off or pick them up. After that costs start to mount up.
