It's been a long time coming, but the most active airport on Spain's southern coast finally got the expansion it has needed. Long considered the gateway to the Costa del Sol (for the good and the bad that name entails), Malaga International Airport suffered from its small size and lack of infrastructure. However, with the arrival of the T3 (Terminal 3), the capacity has essentially doubled, and will allow an increase from 12 to 30 million passengers a year. King Juan Carlos opened the Terminal in an official ceremony this morning.
Malaga's airport is ideally situated for those people who want to visit not just the traditional tourist towns along the Costa del Sol, but also for those who are looking to get in touch with cities like Granada and Nerja, or to take a trip through the region of Andalucia with The Spanish Touch.
