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.
Transport to Gibraltar airport
There’s no public transport from the Costa del Sol except for taxis. They 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.
If you arrive to Malaga airport and decide to hire a car, you can get to Malaga airport driving. If you are not staying in Gibraltar, we recommend to park before the border, so you can avoid long queues.
