Flights to Costa del Sol, Costa del Sol, Spain
Those seeking cheap flights to the Costa del Sol Spain will be pleased to hear; flying there has never been easier or in fact cheaper. Savings can often be made by booking flights and accommodation over the internet, rather than using high street travel agents.
The Costa del Sol’s resident airport is Malaga International Airport (AGP); located 8km South West of Malaga city centre. It boasts easy access via the E-15 and N-340 motorways (well signposted and hard to miss), in addition to bus and train connections. With in excess of 11,500,000 passengers passing through the airport in 2003 Malaga is one of Spain’s busiest destinations. It is also one of Spain’s oldest airports with its first routes starting up in 1919. Money can often be saved by booking flights and accommodation over the internet, rather than using high street travel agents.
The major boom in air traffic has enabled residents of other European countries to benefit from the purchase of holiday homes in the area (due to the relative ease in finding flights for affordable week/weekend breaks). Those buying properties for rental/investment purposes have also been positively affected (as increased air traffic means more visitors and therefore more security when renting an overseas property). The other winners in this scenario are the ex-pats, or those looking to emigrate, as it can be quicker and cheaper to fly to the Costa del Sol than to drive/catch a train long distance within the UK.
