Trains at Malaga airport will run every 20 minutes from September 11

Suburban train at station Malaga Maria Zambrano

Users of the suburban train Malaga-Fuengirola will have to wait less to catch a train from next September 11. That day will start operating the new frequencies that will reduce the time of passage of current thirty minutes to twenty. This is possible thanks to the work of widening of tracks which culminated last January.

During Easter Renfe did a test with the new frequencies that worked perfectly and which had a great acceptance among travelers. This test will be repeated in August, coinciding with the celebration of the Fair in Malaga.

From September 11 onwards, the departures from Malaga will be at ten, thirty and 50 minutes past the full hour, and from Fuengirola at the full hour, at twenty and forty minutes past the full hour.

The start and end of the service will continue as before, starting around 5:30 am and finishing at 10:30 pm.

The line joining the most popular towns on the Costa del Sol such as Fuengirola, Benalmadena and Torremolinos with Malaga airport and Malaga city centre was used last year by more than eight million passengers. This improve is expected to bring an increase in the number of users, especially those with arrival or departure at Malaga airport, which in the first quarter of this year has grown by 41%.
