Gibraltar Airport also services the Costa del Sol, although there are few flights and they’re almost exclusively to and from the UK. Another downside: queues to leave Gibraltar are often very long and customs checks seem to go on forever.
There’s no public transport from the Costa del Sol except for taxis, that may drop you off at the border rather than wait in the queue to get in and out of Gibraltar. Note that you may need a visa to enter Spain from Gibraltar, as it is not part of the EU.
Airport information is available by calling: 350-73026.
Airlines that fly from the UK to Gibraltar are:
- GB Airways (from Gatwick) – 0845-773-3377
- Monarch (from Luton and Manchester) – 0870-040-5040
