Budget airlines are an increasingly popular way of flying to the Costa del Sol, particularly for those who want to travel there from smaller airports in the UK. Every year, millions of passengers choose to fly to Malaga with these budget airlines.
Budget airlines are considerably cheaper as you don’t get anything on the flight apart from your seat, unless you pay for it onboard.
Food and drinks are expensive on budget flights and the choice is limited. You can save money by taking your own or buying it beforehand at the airport. Other airlines are also following this trend; for example, Iberia no longer provide a newspaper on their flights leaving after 10am and you now have to pay for the food on their European flights.
However, there are still airlines where you do get a paper, the chance to watch a video and drinks & meal included in the price of the flight.
Bear in mind that you should also book your car hire Malaga Airport service in advance, in order to avoid availability problems.
