Malaga’s Pablo Picasso Airport (IATA: AGP, ICAO: LEMG) is the main entry gate for visitors and residents on the Costa del Sol.
The airport is located only 8 km to the west of Malaga city, and is Spain’s fourth busiest. It handles an annual average of more than 11 million passengers, the vast majority from the European Union (EU) with London Gatwick and Heathrow, Manchester and Luton airports at the head.
This figure is expected to rise to 20 million over the next years thanks to the new large and spacious Terminal 3, where the main terminal for Malaga airport arrivals and Malaga airport departures is now located. The Spanish government has also prioritized the construction of a second runway, which is projected to be finished by 2012.
