The train station is equipped with personnel to help you use the machines to buy your tickets. The longest route of 13 stops takes around 35 minutes and runs to Fuengirola at price of 2,70 € ( in April 2018).  For those that don't want to take the airport bus, the same train goes into  Malaga City (María Zambrano station and Malaga-Centro Alameda Station).

The 11 minute journey from the airport to Malaga city costs 1,80 € (in August 2022).

These prices are a good thing to keep in mind, because according to staff at the train station, many a foreigner has pressed a button that says “Sobretasa” and ended up paying 7-8 € instead of the actual price. “Sobretasa” is the button to push only if you were caught without a  train ticket and issued a fine by one of the conductors.
