Since the opening of the new Terminal 3 at Malaga airport, getting to the suburban train station is pretty easy. The station is part of the airport now and is located just outside the facilities opposite the Terminal 3 and is connected with the departures area through a pedestrian footbridge. On arrival at Malaga airport, you just have to cross the plaza outside the arrivals area of T3. If you arrive at the terminal 2, you will get directed to the T3.
The suburban train at Malaga airport runs every 20 minutes between Malaga city centre and the main resorts of the Costa del Sol, such as Torremolinos, Benalmadena or Fuengirola.
The train takes approximately 14 minutes to get to Malaga city and 35 minutes to Fuengirola, the last stop. The first train leaves in Malaga city centre at 5.30 am and the last train at 10.30 pm. In Fuengirola, the first train leaves at 6.20 am and the last train at 11.20 pm.
