Malaga Airport fast facts
The first landing at Malaga Airport, then merely a plot of land known as El Rompedizo, was in 1919. It was originally opened to provide a link between France and its colonies in Africa and South America.
The El Rompedizo airport officially opened in September 1919 with connections to Toulouse, Barcelona, Alicante, Tangier and Casablanca.
It was converted into an air base during World War II and returned to use as a public airport in 1946.
In the 1960s, the runway was extended and a new terminal built.
It was renamed Malaga Airport in 1965 and renamed again in 2011 to Malaga-Costa del Sol Airport.
Malaga Costa del Sol Airport has five terminals, three for passengers, one for cargo and the general aviation terminal.
A second runway, which can accommodate even the heaviest aircraft made, was built in June 2012.
New access roads around the terminal were built in 2013 and 2014 to facilitate arrivals and departures.

Costa del Sol
Long considered the playground of the rich and famous, the cities and towns along the southern coast of Spain have a lot to offer the millions of visitors that come every year for its 325 days of sunshine.
The area, which dates back to the Phoenicians 3,000 years ago, has been inhabited by Greeks, Romans and Moors, all of which left distinct marks on its architecture and culture, from bullfighting to flamenco dancing.
There are miles and miles of beaches with areas to suit all tastes. Some are lively; some are quiet; some are almost untouched; some have all the modern facilities you would want. The western end is the most popular with many marinas, casinos, golf courses and sporting events. However, the area east of Malaga has some of the most beautiful coastline and inland scenery in the region of Axarquía.
There are more than 60 golf courses for all golfers from beginner to pro, including the elite Valderrama in Sotogrande, which plays host each year to the Andalucia Spanish Masters, one of the most eagerly anticipated tournaments on the European Tour.
Here is a look at some of the cities and towns along the Costa del Sol – the Coast of the Sun:
Nerja: Located on the eastern tip of the Costa del Sol, in the province of Malaga. Once a sleepy fishing village, it is now a popular resort town without the towering high-rises of many towns along the coast. Its most spectacular attraction is the Balcón de Europa, a promenade along the edge of a towering cliff that has panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea.
Malaga City: The capital of the province of Malaga and also the capital of Costa del Sol, Malaga is a beautiful town filled with museums, including the famed Picasso Museum. It’s Andalucía’s second largest city with a population of 600,000. Visitors find the locals friendly and the beaches stunning.
Benalmadena: The growing popularity of the town of Benalmádena, which extends from the Sierra de Mijas down to the coastline of the Mediterranean, is due to its gorgeous beaches and marina. Located between Torremolinos and Fuengirola, Benalmádena is about 12 miles from Málaga Airport.
Fuengirola: A vibrant metropolitan city, Fuengirola is located between Malaga and Marbella, close to Mijas and Benalmadena. It has many upscale restaurants and cafes as well as chic boutiques. The city square, Plaza de la Constitución, is popular during the summer when the entire town takes part in street celebrations, and when it is decorated at Christmas.
Marbella: Perhaps the swankiest city in Costa del Sol, Marbella is impressive and luxurious with its yacht harbors, golf courses and fine-dining restaurants. Marbella is not only the place celebrities hang out, it is home to many of them. There are frequent sightings of the rich and famous, including Antonio Banderas, who was born in Marbella and often visits his house near the beach at Los Monteros. His ex-wife, Melanie Griffith, is also a frequent visitor as is Scottish James Bond, Sean Connery.
Estepona: Located at the foot of the Sierra Bermeja mountain range on the western end of Costa del Sol, Estepona is one of the most popular destination for foreign tourists. It has maintained much of the Old World feel of Andalusia.
When to visit Malaga?
There are plenty of things to do in Malaga outside the popular summer season.
Between February and May
There is great weather during the winter and spring months in Costa del Sol. Romance abounds around Valentine’s Day when visitors can enjoy a romantic meal in a restaurant on the beach or visit the many monuments.
Carnival in Malaga has parades, people in costume and dancing.
The Day of Andalusia is February 28. It celebrates the day that Andalucía voted for the region to become an autonomous community of Spain in 1980. The Spanish Parliament accepted Andalucía as a historic nationality in 2006.
March, April and May
The streets are filled with parades and parties during Easter Week.
The May Crosses Festival, held on the Sunday nearest to May 1, is an event celebrated around the world, especially in Spain and Latin America. The May Crosses Festival has special importance in the Costa del Sol region where many towns and cities have competitions for the best-decorated cross. Legend has it that Saint Helen, who was Saint Constantine's mother, founded the festival to show respect for the cross on which Jesus was crucified.
June, July and August
Summer is the most popular time for tourists so make sure you make travel plans far in advance of your visit.
Puerto Banus, which looks like a Spanish fishing village but was designed and built in 1970 as a luxury marina and shopping complex, is a favorite summer for the rich and famous who come for the beaches and vibrant night life. Pop and reality TV stars, expensive sports cars and luxury yachts abound.
Midsummer’s Eve, which is held on the summer solstice, is a welcome party for summer. There are hundreds of campfires and live music on the beach. It’s tradition to bathe in the sea after midnight.
Virgen del Carmen, held July 16, is a holiday to celebrate the Virgin Mary of Carmelo. Celebrations, in which a statue of the virgin is placed on boats, are held in fishing villages up and down the coast. The boats are adorned with flowers, brass bands play and fireworks are shot off at night.
October, November, December and January
The weather is a bit cooler but still nice during those months. The water is a little cold but the beaches are still filled with sun-seeking tourists.
