An excellent-quality airport service and low-cost airlines connect Andalucia with the rest of Spain, Europe and even Africa and America
The biggest airport and the one that produces the greatest quantity of aerial traffic is without any doubt that of Malaga, the Pablo Picasso Airport, also called Aeropuerto de la Costa del Sol. It provides service for the entire Costa del Sol and Andalucia, thus being Spain’s fourth busiest airport, after Madrid Barajas, Barcelona El Prat, and Palma de Mallorca.
More than 60 airlines connect Malaga with the main European cities, and even Canada and some Moroccan cities have their private connection with the capital city of Costa del Sol. Among the low-cost airlines with the most aerial traffic and that move the greatest quantity of travellers and tourists, Ryanair, Easyjet and Vueling.com stand out.
These low-cost airlines provide efficient services, frequent direct flights to and from the most important European cities with accessible prices for everyone, depending on the season you want to fly. Despite the fact that the prices usually vary from a minimum of €30 to a maximum of €60, you’d better check the flights at least two months before your scheduled trip to Malaga and the Costa del Sol, since the prices and the frequency may vary a lot from one day to another.
