Malaga International Airport (AGP) is located South West of Malaga
city centre. It services the Costa del Sol, with easy access to
the E-15 (toll road) & N-340 motorways. With in excess of
12,500,000 passengers passing through the airport in 2004 Malaga
is one of Spain's busiest destinations. Due to ever increasing
demand, plans have been laid for further expansion, the airport
has finally been given the go-ahead to begin a €730 million
(£483 million) expansion plan designed to double its capacity
by 2010. Following years of delays and uncertainty and amidst
fears over a possible collapse in its services due to overcrowding,
the airport will see the launch of the two-stage "Plan Malaga".
The first phase of the plan, which should be completed by 2008,
will see a new terminal building with 28 new boarding gates and
dozens of new check-in desks. According to the local Sur in English
newspaper www.surinenglish.com, the airport will then be able
to process around 9,000 passengers per hour - twice the current
figure. To avoid congestion problems in the meantime, the existing
T1 terminal will be renovated and two new exit lanes from the
runway will be built. The first phase also involves the construction
of new access roads, docking platforms and an overhaul of the
airport's electrical system. The second phase in the scheme will
see the completion of the long-overdue second runway, and the
diversion underground of the railway link to the airport. By the
time the scheme is complete the airport will be able to handle
up to 75 take-offs or landings each hour, according to Sur in
