Malaga airport parking is known for security and safety. Despite being such a busy airport, there's plenty of space. Malaga is a prime holiday destination, especially throughout the summer. So most of the airport's passengers head straight for their resort coach and spend most of their time having fun on the beach. Business travellers are in the minority. Car park 1, long term has a generous capacity 1,533 spaces. Car park 2, short term, also has a large capacity and takes 968 cars.
The car parks at Malaga Airport are all conveniently situated, close to the two terminals. The short stay car park, with covered and uncovered parking, is right outside Terminal 1. Long term parking is next to Terminal 2, if you plan to park for more than four days. There are handy disabled parking spaces in P1 and P2 – remember to display your licensed disabled badge. It is always a good idea to contact your airline before you arrive at the airport if you're disabled and need help with parking. You can always book long stay parking at Malaga Airport on the day.
Malaga Airport parking is extremely good value for money and safe too. If you're a business traveller you can safely leave your vehicle there for the duration in the knowledge that they take security seriously.

There's a direct free bus between there and the terminal so it is wonderfully convenient. Check Malaga Airport’s website for charges.
