Malaga Airport Arrivals from UK

Postby pensure1988 » Fri Jul 03, 2020 5:41 pm

Has anyone collected their Family or Friends from Malaga Airport since 01/07/2020. I would like to know what the delay is when coming through Passport Control, having your temperature taken,body signs checled and handing in completed details form. I need to estimate how much extra time I must allow for pick up in the express parking area.

Thank You

David

When our neighbours arrived last Saturday from Germany they said there weren't any delays. Ryanair had sent them the form in advance to complete so they were through arrivals quickly without any problems.

I arrived at SVQ earlier in the week having printed and completed my form in advance. Was waved through passports without any inspection. Behind passports the completed forms were being collected and checked. Once my form was checked I was waived through - matter of seconds. Did not see any temperature checking but then I wasn't hanging around!

Some airports are using thermal imaging cameras which scan a crown of people.

We arrived at midday today. We had completed the form in advance and it only took a couple of minutes to get checked and sent on our way. Temperatures were taken by cameras on tripods. The whole experience was not too bad really.

Hi,
How is the packing density in the planes :?:

July 1st it was taking about an hour extra, for suitcases etc. But customers yesterday are reporting not much delay at all. the longest thing is the luggage like always.

people just with hand luggage are coming out quite quickly. Within 20-30 minutes of the plane landing.

Enrique, my flight to SVQ was at least 152 out of 189. Others may have checked in after me but the front of the plane looked full.

quite a pleasant experience on my Ryanair flight. Seat belts all the way so not the usual people leaning on your seat as they talk to friends. No massive q for toilets. Press overhead button if you need the loo.

What about social distancing and precautions?

We arrived at SVQ on Wednesday 8 July and had completed online the Spanish Health Travel form online, and had received our QR codes prior to travel....

But on arrival the QR code reader was not working, so we had to complete the papers forms there and then - chaos unsued, and completed forms were not checked against passports, but thermal imaging temperature checks were working

Suppose that it will all work better given time......

Getting back to the OP question, we normally use Sevilla airport, but have to pick-up family from Malaga airport in the near future, and would be very grateful for advice.....

Are you allowed to wait in the usual Arrivals Hall, or is this discouraged? Or outside the Arrivals Hall?

Would it be best to park wherever, and text the family with the parking location, and let them walk to us?

As I said, advice from the Malaga airport users would be very much appreciated

q as normal for passport and when going through boarding control in UK. No social distancing at all but everyone wears a mask.

There were a few people in the hall but most standing outside of arrivals hall. I would say park up and text location to guests if your concerned about social distancing.

Hi

A friend of mine was chased away from the arrivals hall recently by a security guard. He said you are not allowed down here anymore. Wait for your visitors someswhere else. Obviously social distancing is being applied at Malaga Aifrport

There is tape accross the walkways and escalators, its making things difficult for people who need to get upstairs from arrivals.
