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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to stop for customs when I fly on a private jet?
Passengers on all international private charter flights will have to stop at customs. In certain countries, you may have to go through customs at a specific port of entry; for example, you must stop in Tahiti to perform customs checks en route to Bora Bora. You’ll also need to stop at the first port of entry when entering the U.S. from Mexico.
How much rest does the crew need before they can depart again?
Crew members are required to have a 10-hour rest period within each 24-hour cycle. The maximum duty day is 14 hours and must be followed by a 10-hour rest period at their hotel. When scheduling a flight, operators usually account for 12 hours of rest instead of 10. These extra two hours allow the crew time to get to their hotel, rest for the required time, and return to the airport.
How long does a fuel stop for a private jet flight take?
The average fuel stop takes 45–60 minutes. To speed up fuel stops, the operator, or pilots may call ahead, so a fuel truck is waiting for the aircraft on arrival. For smaller jets, a fuel stop can take as little as 30 minutes.
Will my private jet charter use the same airport as a commercial airline?
No. When you charter a private jet, you generally fly into a private airport. However, you could access the same airports as a commercial airline if you request to do so or if there are no private airport options. However, using a large mainstream airport like Los Angeles International or London Heathrow is often a bad choice for private jets, as flying to a smaller regional private airport is much faster and often makes for a more luxurious experience.
Is the age of an aircraft a safety factor?
Aircraft age is not a safety factor. However, if the aircraft is older and hasn’t been refurbished properly, it may cause flyers some inconvenience, such as overheating, faulty air conditioning, or faulty plumbing in the lavatory.
How much luggage am I allowed to bring on a private jet?
As a rule of thumb, each seat on a light or midsize jet equates to one passenger and one item of luggage. Each item of luggage is considered to be the standard 23 kilograms, or about 50 lbs. Large jets are designed for long-range trips, which typically involve longer stays, so you can carry more than one item of luggage per person.
Are there aircraft that are wheelchair accessible?
There are many aircraft that are wheelchair accessible. Most of them are large jets or above and have a straight aisle. If the jet has a zigzag aisle – like the Falcon 900 – it will be difficult to maneuver the wheelchair onboard the aircraft. You’ll also need the right type of wheelchair; many motorized wheelchairs won’t fit and can’t be collapsed. If this is the case, you’ll need a smaller, temporary wheelchair. Some aircraft operators have smaller wheelchairs that can be used. Please speak with your Paramount private jet expert to review your aircraft options.
Can I fly with large sums of cash?
Yes, you can. This is a common occurrence for many private jet clients. You can fly with up to $5 million in cash as long as you declare that cash when coming through customs. For domestic trips, there’s no limit and no need to declare it.
Which private jets come with flight attendants?
In the United States, large jets and above are required to have flight attendants onboard; in Europe, flight attendants are used on midsize jets and above. Flight attendants require their own seats. Larger jets and above have a jump seat near the cockpit for the flight attendant to use, meaning the attendant generally stays out of the cabin.
Which airports offer ramp access, allowing the client to drive their car right up to their private jet?
Private jet clients can often have a limo drive them right up to the private jet, or even drive their own car to the plane. That said, different airports have different policies, and some may not offer ramp access. Please speak with your Paramount Aviation Advisor to review your options for a given trip.
Do private jets come with Wi-Fi?
Many private jets do have Wi-Fi, and it’s increasingly available free of charge on U.S. domestic flights. On international flights, prices range from $3.00-$8.50 USD per megabyte used. This means that opening up social media sites that are rich in images and videos could quickly cost you $20 – and downloading a feature-length movie could cost thousands!
When is on-demand private jet charter better than buying a block of hours?
Private jet charter can be a lot cheaper than buying a block of hours for a one-way flight, as you can access floating fleets or an empty leg to reduce the cost. With a block of hours, the price covers a round trip. If you only fly one-way, you are effectively paying double.
What is a carbon-neutral flight?
Every aircraft burns jet fuel and emits a certain amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere. This can be offset via one of several carbon offset programs that allow private jet clients to purchase a certain number of carbon credits to offset the emissions from their flights. A carbon-neutral flight is one that offsets the carbon emissions it uses via a formal process.
Can I have a flexible departure time for my private jet flight?
Yes, it is possible to have a flexible departure when flying privately. Operators typically offer a 30-minute to two-hour window, but you can request a longer window as long as it doesn’t interfere with the maximum crew duty day or their next scheduled flight. Please confirm with your Paramount Aviation Advisor at the time of booking your jet.
When should I hire a Boeing Business Jet?
Boeing Business Jets (BBJs) have unique amenities that extend far beyond sheer size and are often equipped with 1-2 bedrooms and 2-3 bathrooms (one more of those bathrooms may even offer stand-up showers.) These airliner-based executive aircraft also feature tall or ‘stand-up’ cabins that are also longer and wider than more typical corporate aircraft.
How soon can I have a private jet ready from the time I call in the request?
Generally speaking, with as little as 4 hours of notice. However, we have had wheels up in as little as 32 minutes from the time our client called us to book the flight and had them in the air. It depends on a few factors, such as how long it takes for the pilots to arrive at the airport (generally, there is a 2-hour call-out time for the pilots), and whether the aircraft is ready to go at the airport with no repositioning needed. Our Jet Card members enjoy faster booking since they have funds on account and can confirm a flight with a simple email.
Can I access my luggage while in flight?
On most private jets, you will be able to access your luggage during the flight. That’s because luggage and passengers are situated on the same level. This is in contrast to commercial airlines, where checked luggage is stored in a cargo hold. On large private jets, luggage is often stored in a compartment behind the lavatory, which means easy access to your bags.
When are private jet charter landing and takeoff slots applicable?
A landing or takeoff slot is simply a small window of time in which your aircraft is scheduled to fly in or out of the airport. You will need a landing and takeoff slot if you fly to a high-density airport in the United States or one that is hosting a special event with a significant number of aircraft arriving and departing. If you’re flying internationally, you will need a landing and takeoff slot for all major European cities. Please check with your Paramount Aviation Advisor at the time of booking for a specific route.
What kind of in-flight catering is available on a private jet?
Other than the standard snacks and drinks, you can order local cuisine options for your catering on board. In short, anything that doesn’t need to be cooked can be ordered; hot food must be precooked and then warmed on board.
Can I bring pets with me on private jet flights?
Of course! Just let us know in advance. The majority of the operators and aircraft owners allow pets onboard. In some cases, a small cleaning fee may apply. That said, there are specific requirements that must be met when traveling with your pet, including making sure that all documentation and vaccination records for your pet(s) are correct and up-to-date. Dogs and cats must also be at least eight weeks old and weaned when traveling within the U.S.
