Málaga: How to get from the airport to the centre?
Once you have made the decision to book a ticket to Málaga, the excitement can start! What do you want to see? Where will you stay? What are the best restaurants? And where are the places I have to visit? Well, research this, pack your bagage, wait until the day of departure arrives and go to the airport. But once you arrive at Málaga Airport, how to get from there to the city centre?
We have outlined a few possibilities...
There is an express bus, line A, which travels from the Airport to Malaga and back. The bus has only 9 intermediate stops and it takes about 20 to 25 minutes. The bus from the airport starts at the airport at 7:00 and ends at 00:00. The busses from the centre to the airport start and end a bit earlier, namely at 6:25 and at 23:30. All the buses of line A departure about every half hour.
A ticket to go to the airport or to the city centre with this bus costs only three euros. They do not charge any additional costs to the luggage. Do you want more information about this bus or the transportation with the bus in Málaga, you can find everything here.
The train is becoming a more frequently used mean of transportation each day, when traveling to or from the airport. Once you leave the airport you won’t miss the train station opposite the airport. A trip with the train takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes and only costs 1,80 for a single ticket. The tickets can be bought at the ticket machines at the train station itself. Here you have the possibility to change the language to make it easier for you when buying a ticket.
Make sure you keep your ticket until you have left the train station, because you will need the ticket to check out in the city centre!
You need to take the train to Malaga Centro Alameda, which also is the stop where you need to leave the train. The train departures every 20 minutes, from 06.44 until 0:54. The train station Malaga Centro Alameda is not located in the middle of the centre, but very close. You only need to walk for a few minutes.
If you do not want to take the public transport, there is the option to take a taxi. The airport has a special place where many taxi’s wait for you to bring you to your end destination. All the taxi prices are governed by Tariff and these are as well published at the front of the taxi place at Malaga Airport.
The price for a taxi depends on the day of the week and the time you travel, but a normal fare from the airport to the centre of Malaga costs about 20 euros. The trip will take more or less 20 minutes.
