Hi all,

I've just been told that the short stay (Arrivals) car park at Malaga airport is closed? I've searched online but can't find anything to confirm, or deny, this.

Has anyone been to collect anyone recently? If so, would you tell me what the situation is, please?

I'm only meeting a flight so don't envisage being there for longer than half an hour. I'm just a little concerned where I'm going to park if the short stay car park is closed.

Anyone have any advice, please?

Thanks in advance.

No I haven't but I looked on the official website and it doesn't say anything about it being close.
However in the first section, parking general, it does say edificio cerrado meaning it's a closed building and the cars are not kept outside, but does not mean the car park is closed for business. Maybe this has caused confusion?

Thank you, Pesky Wesky.

You might be right - I wonder if that's what's caused confusion?

I looked on the Malaga airport website and didn't even notice that.

Thanks for the advice. :)

It's all a bit in flux down there at the moment, they keep moving cones about and trying things a different way but it was ok last week!
We're off again next Tuesday, can't wait to see how it's panning out...Spain....booze-ups and breweries come to mind ;)

My procedure for collecting people:

Park in Leroy Merlin car park, San Julian or in San Julian itself (there is a café/bar); you are five minutes from the airport.
Prior to their departure, instruct arriving friends/family to call or sms you when luggage collected or when about to exit Terminal.
They should exit at Departures, walk along as far as possible. I usually tell people to wait under the flags. Very visible!
Drive to Airport Salidas and do instant pick up.

Consult Malaga Arrivals before leaving home so you get up-to-date information about flight status, any delays etc.

This method is very relaxed and avoids any car park charges,.
