Picking up at Malaga airport

Postby oscarposcar » Wed Aug 11, 2010 6:36 pm

I haven't been to Malaga airport since the new bit opened - is it still possible to wait in the car outside arrivals or do you have to park to go and pick someone up? It's a Ryanair flight so I think it comes to terminal 2. Any tips appreciated... Thanks

best to arrange to pick them up outside departures, not arrivals

As above. Just tell them to go up in the lifts, outside and turn right.

When you arrive in the car go up the ramp and you'll find yourself outsides departures.

Although Ryanair use terminal 2, arriving passengers will still come out through Terminal 3 arrivals. But you can't get a car to that part.

As Julian and .Griff say, go up the ramp to Term 2 departures and get them there, but don't leave your car unattended. They can be a bit quick with the grua. If in any doubt, stick it in the car park, for all it costs.

Incidentally, has one ever been able to wait outside arrivals. Most people waited upstairs, which is departures.

You can get to Arrivals by going through the new tunnel and going right round the roundabout at Cargo. Then you bear right on the way back, passing the taxi station and you get to Arrivals; but you cannot wait there, pick up only. So you need to be well co-ordinated with your arrivees.

Best to go to Terminal 2 Departures, as stated, or park in the car park opposite Terminal 2 departures. [Though half of it was closed on Monday]

That's typical. Get the car park fully open, then close half of it again at the height of the tourist season.

I think you'll find that's an 'Authorised Vehicles Only' access. I used that road when T3 first opened and the taxi drivers weren't impressed and made a big deal of noting down my reg no and tried to block me in. Safer to go to departures at T2 as suggested.
