Flying to the south of Spain has never been easier, or in fact cheaper. Those travelling to Marbella are likely to fly to Malaga airport (AGP), which offers connections to most major European cities. Savings can often be made by booking flights and accommodation over the internet, rather than using high street travel agents.

Malaga’s International Airport (AGP) is located just 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 airport 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 in recent years has enabled residents of other European countries (such as the UK) to benefit from the purchase of holiday homes (due to the relative ease of finding flights for affordable week/weekend breaks), and those buying properties for rental/investment purposes (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 indeed those looking to emigrate, as (many people have already found) it can be quicker and cheaper to fly to Spain these days than to drive long distance within the UK. In short the world really is becoming a smaller place.
