Malaga Airport Costa del sol, Spain


Malaga Airport Information

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 English.
