Malaga AGP Airport has six parking areas for visitors and passengers. The Car parks are all conveniently located opposite Terminal T2 and Terminal T3, the General Aviation Terminal and also the VIP area so depending on how long you are staying and the type of service you need you'll need to choose accordingly.

This car park is within easy walking distance of the main terminal buildings and is generally used if you are meeting flights or accompanying friends and family to and from the Airport. There are 1,471 spaces, of which 47 are reserved for disabled parking badge holders.
The car park connects to T3 via a passageway on Floor 2 as well as the Check-In area and Arrivals area on the ground floor. Note that a lot of the Car hire companies also use this car park.

The Express Parking area, also known as the Departures Car Park, is located opposite the T2 Departures area and also has easy access to T3. 
This is strictly a short-term car park, designed for a maximum 30-minute stay so you don't want to leave the car here and then jump on a plane or you'll have a hefty bill to come back to!

P3: Long Stay Parking
Málaga Airport’s Long Stay Car Park is an open-air area with some covered spaces. It is approximately five minutes journey time from the main terminal buildings and served by a free shuttle bus.  Several other Car parking facilities operate with a shuttle bus.  We particularly like the team at Blue Cat Parking :)
