Spain is, after Italy, the country in the world with a greater number of so-called low cost air connections, exceeding countries like Germany, France or the UK.
About 70% of low cost airlines are based in Europe, operating domestic routes, thus imposing a strong competition between airlines and railroads. There are also links between major European cities to travel from one to another at ever lower prices. Spain is in second place of countries hosting low cost, offering 20% more of this kind of travel than the United Kingdom, the precursor of the concept.
Spanish cities are more accessible with low cost flights. In this case, the heading airports are those of Barcelona and Madrid, followed by Malaga airport, a traditional tourist reference that enjoys a further boost with the launch of its new Terminal 3.
Low cost airlines raise very appealing rates, which makes them an attractive option whenever you make a reservation weeks in advance, are flexible regarding the dates and avoid wherever possible the services which increase the reservation price (luggage, payment,…). Otherwise, we may want to book regular airlines, including services that may have more competitive prices. Here you find a list of airlines serving Malaga airport.
