Officially called Málaga–Costa del Sol Airport, it is the fourth busiest airport in Spain and an important one for serving the many tourists who fly in and out of the Costa del Sol. A busy airport, it is always developing and new areas being built to cope with demand. In 2016, there were a record breaking number of passengers passing through Malaga airport with an increase of 15.7% in passenger numbers. Today it is a large and modern airport offering a whole host of good shops, restaurants, cafes and important facilities.
Málaga Airport is located just 8km from Malaga City, making it a very easy transfer for those staying in the city itself. It is accessible by all main methods of transport. For those staying in different resorts around the Costa del Sol, Málaga Airport serves a wide area. It is just a 10 minute ride to Torremolinos or 15 minutes to Benalmadena. It stretches to a 30 minute car ride to Marbella and around 60 minutes to Esteopona. As such, many tourists enjoy to sit back in the luxury travelling style of an airport taxi after their flight.
The airport is made up of three terminals T1, T2 and T3, althought T1 is now rarely used.
