Malaga airport arrivals

Does anyone know what the situation is regarding picking up people from arrivals. Is it still a case of having to wait outside for them?

yes as of last Friday you had to wait outside terminal with all the taxi drivers and private hire guys. Security inside terminal keeping drivers out.

The alternative is use the Express Parking upstairs by departures . The 1st 15 minutes is free and after that you have to pay.
A lot of people I know use this facility. It is much easier than waiting downstairs. Off course you will have to time your arrival at the Express Parking with that of the flight times.

Spanish Local Police might chase you away from the arrivals area.

If people don't mind walking then the next carpark along, the short stay one, is far cheaper if you're not exactly sure when the person you're meeting is coming out. I once dropped my OH off in the Express one and nipped into the airport for a wee and my extra few minutes cost over 3€. I've always just parked in the short stay and waited outside the upstairs departure area for him.

We tend to park in the one furthest away when picking up. Its abit of a treck on the travelators but pretty cheap. Dropping off we use the express

Especially as one or more of the travelaters usually don’t work

Not from outside the terminal but they do if you go inside.

There was a clip on canal tv news. They have tensa barriers outside the sliding doors where the meet and greets stand with their cards. Everyone else just stands waiting near the cafe
