Malaga Airport(AGP) is located 8 km from the city centre with excellent communication links to over 60 countries worldwide. Malaga Airport is the international airport of Andalucia accounting for 85 percent of its international traffic and is the only one offering a wide variety of international destinations. The airport, connected to the Costa Del Sol, has a daily link with twenty cities in Spain and over one hundred cities in Europe. Direct flights also operate to Africa, the Middle East and North America.
The airport currently operates with three terminals. They are all adjacent to each other. There is also a General Aviation Terminal and a Cargo Terminal. The Terminals have 164 check-in desks altogether and have 48 boarding gates altogether of which 26 have airbridges. Although certain airlines check-in at certain terminals, all flights leave from Terminal 3.
When the new terminal opened, Terminal 2 completely changed. The arrivals waiting area was closed to allow passengers to trnsfer themselves between terminals. Most of the alleyway was closed off (including the area with the places on the wall) and a new part was created instead,of which it now has a brand new passport control and a new set of escalators.
Driving Directions Access to the airport from Malaga is made by the A7 road towards Algeciras. Take exit 235 towards Torremolinos to connect with the MA-21 and access the airport. From the towns on the Costa del Sol, you have to go along the A7 towards Malaga and take exit 229 towards San Julian. From this exit you can connect with the MA-21, the road leading to the airport.
Car Parking Car parks are available outside both terminals; both offer short-term parking. Both covered and outdoor parking is available in the car park outside Terminal 2, whilst long-term parking (more than four days) is available in the Terminal 1 car park.

Tipoa Car hire and it's partners can offer a FULL OUT Full Return fuel deal. If you hire is for less than 3 days, this can make quite a difference to your overall costs, on hires of more than 3 days, the majority of Spanish Car Hire suppliers who operate a Full Out / Empty return policy will have little to no effect in your overall car rental costs.
Explained by our very own Mrs Tip (advice) on you tube:-
Beware of the Spanish car hire companies that issue you with a full tank of petrol and requiring it to be returned empty. In this case you will be asked to pay for the fuel at the beginning of the rental and remember to return the car as empty as possible as the value of any unused fuel will not be returned. It’s called “full / empty” fuel policy. Please be careful and read the specific terms and conditions applicable to your rental - as these can vary between suppliers, vehicles and locations.
