connection to airport

Postby carrowcrin » Tue Apr 17, 2012 10:58 am

I have a friend that will arrive at Malaga bus depot at 11.30am.
Their flight is at 1.10pm.
Does this allow enough time to get to the airport for to make this connection.

Many thanks

Only they know if they want to take that risk, personally I wouldn't !

Assuming you mean the bus depot adjacent to the rail station and that the bus arrives on time, it is walk of about 5 mins to the rail station, say a couple of minutes to buy a ticket, so it would be possible to be on the platform in time to catch the 11.53 train arriving at the Airport at 12.01. The next train is at 12.13 arriving at 12.21. Time to check in, clear passport and security controls - anyone's guess!

Don't think I would want to do it!

I don't know but you haven't factored in the walk from the train to the desk, if you call it five minutes it starts to get very marginal, most airlines require check in 40 mins prior to departure.

And all the careful timings could count for nothing if the bus was delayed for some reason, heavy traffic, roadworks or an accident. Definitely FAR TOO RISKY to cut it so fine.

We went with the original plan and it worked ok but really not much to spare.

Thanks again
