 Malaga Airport Road Changes
The final part of the new access road to Malaga Airport has been opened and means that there are now two ways in and out. Our website instructions are still valid but will be amended when we have had time to explore all routes and to note the road number changes which affect car hire pick up points. Google maps show the new layout quite well and might help to explain the following information.

As a temporary measure please note the following:

When leaving the airport from a car hire pick up point follow signs to Malaga and look out for either the MA20 (Ctra Ronda Oeste) or MA21 (Av Velazquez) roads signed to Motril and Almeria. If you follow these roads you will connect onto the A7/E15 motorway also signed to Motril and Almeria, as per our detailed instructions. We always recommend caution when using satnav because the new roads tend not to be “seen” and when you get to the point where we say keep left onto the A7 often a satnav will urge you to go via the Granada motorway which is slightly shorter but very winding. See our website How to Find Us Page.

Airport collections:
Anyone collecting friends from the airport should be aware that there are now two ways to leave the usual collection area outside departures (yes departures!). As before you can go past parking P2 and keeping right go down the slip road to the brewery roundabout. However confusingly this slip road is now signed to Torremolinos and a fork to the left is signed to Malaga. This left hand lane leads onto the new arial motorway section and links up to the MA20. This is the link which has been open in the other direction since last year.
The completed works took five years and cost 61 million Euros and was funded by the EU. So as Jeremy Clakson would say we own it!

Malaga Metro Soon to Open
After many years of disruption caused by engineering work on Malaga’s new underground system there is light at the end of the tunnel 🙂 Sorry. The new metro should open late June or early July. Staff training and trial runs are already taking place.
