Malaga Airport History
Malaga originally was a commercial air connection between France and her African colonies. Pierre Latécoère, in 1919, located an area suitable for an aerodrome, on a plot known as the "El Rompedizo." Malaga became part of the regular flight route between Toulouse; Barcelona; Alicante; Málaga; Tánger and Casablanca on the 1st September 1919.
Malaga aerodrome became a military base in 1937.
On July 12th 1946, Malaga airport was classified as a Port of Entry. Thereafter, Malaga began receiving national and international flights. Passenger services were handled in the military air base until the civil passenger air base was opened in 1948.
During 1960 there was a radical change. A kilometre and-a-half north of the passenger air base, a new terminal was constructed and it was opened on 29th January 1968. All passenger services both domestic and international were transferred to the new terminal.
The formal apellation of "Malaga Airport
" was decreed in September 1965. On the 18th May 2011 the denomination of Malaga Airport changed to: Malaga-Costa del Sol Airport
, by Ministerial decree.
The A7 - E15 motorway has nearby connections for either side of the Costa del Sol:
Directions for the Western Costa del Sol
Exit the airport, continue straight-on after the roundabout.
Travel 300 metres, bear right onto the N-340 access for Torremolinos/Cadiz.

alongside this access road.
Directions for the Eastern Costa del Sol
Exit the airport, keep going straight-on at the roundabout.
Stay in the left lane as you approach the San Miguel beer factory.
Cross the bridge and take the right-sweeping turn to connect with the N-340, going in the Malaga direction
Disregard the first exit: Cambio de Sentido Continue another 700 metres, keep to the right hand lane, heeding signs for Motril/Almeria.
Keep on the right side. The road gradually curves over the bridge and connects with the A7 - E15.
The A7 - E15 hooks-up with the AP7 motorway
(the Autopista del Sol).
The AP7 goes from Malaga to Guadiaro, in three separate stetches of toll road.
The western A7 - E15 passes by Torremolinos, Benalmandena, Fuengirola, Marbella, Estepona and on to Cadiz.
The eastern A7 - E15 goes to Malaga, Nerja, Motril, Almeria and on up to Barcelona
