    International passengers are arriving in Malaga again

    Over 1,200 flights were registered at Malaga Airport during the first weekend in July. According to Spanish airport operator AENA, this was only 62 per cent of flights compared to 2019, but still twice as many as last year 2020, with the majority coming from international destinations within Europe with just under 900 flights.

    The increase in passenger activity coincides with the reopening of Terminal T2 and Pier B, both of which had been closed since mid-September. In addition to the increase in travel volume, another step towards normality was taken at the weekend with the resumption of flights to Doha (Qatar) with the airline Qatar Airways. The flight connection is of great importance for Malaga because of the strong purchasing power of tourists from the Gulf region.

    The tourist season also began throughout Spain on the first week of July. Spanish airports handled a total of just over 17,000 flights between Thursday and Sunday, 4 July. The airport with the most aircraft movements during these four days was Madrid with 2,720 flights, followed by Palma de Mallorca, Barcelona, Ibiza, Málaga and Gran Canaria.

    Please note that there are some formalities required to enter Spain. 48 hours before arrival in Spain you must register on the “Spain Travel Health” website. After filling out and uploading the necessary documents, you will receive a QR code which you must print out or show on your mobile phone at the airport. The check of the corona registration before baggage claim is quite quick, but you should expect a waiting time of about 30 – 45 minutes, depending on the number of flights.
