It is called the Linea A Express and the bus has luggage racks inside the bus. The bus runs everyday from the airport to the Plaza del General Torrijos (at the end of the Malaga park).

The bus from the airport to Malaga starts at 7:00H and ends at 24:00H, about every half hour.

Stops are at Avenida de Velazquez, La Hoz (Huelin market), Ayala (Los Arcos), Maria Zambrano Station, bus station, Avenida de Andalucia, Alameda Principal, Paseo del Parque, and Plaza del General Torrijos.

B. Cercanias Train Between Airport and Malaga


Many arrivals now use the new Terminal 3 building.  The new airport station is now across the road from Terminal 3.

Follow the Train signs to reach the ticket machines. On the bottom left there is a multi language button which includes English., The Málaga side is clearly marked but you need the Fuengirola side for Torremolinos and benalmadena. Do buy your ticket before boarding or else risk a fine, and retain it for use at the exit turnstiles.   .  

All Malaga suburban trains will depart from and arrive at Malaga Centro Alameda, which is located by the Tetuan Bridge (Puente de Tetuan).  It is not the best place to arrive, unless you have a hotel or other known destination nearby, as it appears to be more of a utilitarian exit for locals. Maria Zambrano is the main transport interchange for Media Distancia and AVE trains and has a large taxi rank for Málaga hotels.


From the airport to Malaga Centro Alameda – Runs from 06.44 to 00.24, every twenty minutes ( half hour after 22.54), and takes 15 minutes.

From Malaga Centro Alameda Station to the airport – Runs from 05:20 to 23:30H,  every twenty minuts and takes 11 minutes.

The station next to the Malaga Centro Alameda Station is the Maria Zambrano Station, which is the main station complex, near the bus station. This is the best destination when arriving in Malaga and is also serviced by a vast fleet of taxis.

A one way fare costs  

The distance between Maria Zambrano Station and downtown Calle Larios is 1 km.
