Malaga Airport (AGP), also known as Malaga-Costa del Sol Airport, is the largest airport in the southern Andalusian region and the fourth busiest airport in Spain. It opened in 1919, and in 2010, added the stunning new terminal – T3. Most of the flights now depart from here and the airport has flight connections to over 60 countries worldwide.
Malaga Airport receives an average of 13 million passengers each year, and almost 85 per cent of all Andalusia international traffic. The reason this airport is so successful is its close proximity to the famous hot spots of the Costa del Sol. It’s approximately 25 minutes to Malaga city centre from the airport, and tourist destinations, including Marbella, Puerto Banus, Estepona and Sotogrande, are all within easy reach.
Malaga Airport is busy all year round. The spring-summer season starts in April, with the traditional Semana Santa – there’s a strong Easter tradition in Malaga – and ends in late October. July and August are the busiest months at the airport, in terms of number of passengers, as the kids break up from school and families take their holidays.
What’s the easiest way to get to Marbella, Puerto Banus, Estepona and Sotogrande, or anywhere on the Costa del Sol? By booking a transfer from Malaga Airport.
