Choosing best airline to fly to Malaga

The price for the ticket increases until the high season, it can be triple just from April to July.

Norwegian flight landing

Among the most popular airlines providing flights to Malaga are British Airways and Ryanair. Other airlines like Easyjet, Jet2 or Norwegian add up to the list every year with new flights and deals so worth checking them.

I think nobody can recommend a best one, even more in continental flights where the food offer is not as varied as in intercontinental flights (one of differences between airlines are the flight services).

People use to complain from low cost flights, but they keep using them because of the low price. What do you prefer? economy or first class seat?

Best transport from the airport

Arriving with a lot of luggage and prefer to avoid the bus or the commuter train next to the arrivals hall? Then better choose a transfer or a rental car.

If you plan to take a taxi I recommend to book a transfer online instead. You will know what you will pay in advance, no matter what problem arises. Malagatransfer.co.uk is a reliable company with very good reviews, I have used it myself for 8 people who came to visit me and I can only recommend it. They adapted to my needs and the luggage space required. The driver was very friendly and helpful.

Hiring a car is a good idea for discovering the province. If you choose to rent a car then I recommend you with total confidence malagacar.com, a company with many positive reviews, cheap prices and a good service.

Whatever you choose they will both pick you up at the arrivals hall, so no worries. In case you choose public transport both train as bus are close enough to not get lost.

Where to eat? Best restaurants in Malaga

Once you arrive to your resort, nothing better than begin the first day with a typical dish.
