Flights to Malaga from which airports in the UK?
Not surprisingly, given that Spain's coastal resorts remain perennial favourites with British holidaymakers, Malaga Airport can be reached directly from all corners of the UK, allowing people access to year-round sun, sea and sand regardless of where they live.

From the north and the midlands, Malaga can be reached from Birmingham, Blackpool, East Midlands, Doncaster-Sheffield, Leeds-Bradford, Liverpool, Manchester and Newcastle.
North of the border, cheap flights can also be caught from Glasgow's Prestwick and International airports, as well as from Edinburgh, while holidaymakers in the north of Ireland can fly direct to Malaga from Belfast International.
Airlines flying to Malaga from the UK
Easily one of the busiest low-cost flights routes, passengers flying from the UK to Malaga can benefit from cheap airline tickets due to the ongoing competition between carriers.
easyJet currently offers the greatest range of services to the Spanish city, though it competes with the likes of bmibaby, Ryanair and Jet2 from several UK destinations.
Also flying the route are British Airways and Thomson Airways.
Where is Malaga in Spain?
Located in the Spanish region of Andalusia, the port city of Malaga is the gateway to the Costa del Sol, and as such attracts millions of sun-seeking visitors a year.
From the airport, the coast's many hotel resorts and beaches are easily reached either by public transportation or by hire care.
Flights to the south of Spain from the UK take a little over two hours and therefore stop-overs are neither required nor available.
Though the weather often seems a million miles away from that of Britain, the time difference between the two countries is just one hour, making it an ideal destination for short breaks or hassle-free holidays.
Things to see and do in Malaga
For a large proportion of holidaymakers, Malaga is simply the gateway to the Costa del Sol's hotels and beaches, as well as a party destination for the evening.
However, those looking for a little more from their time away will be pleasantly pleased to find an historic port city, with the quarters of El Perchel and La Trinidad in particular excellent illustrations of Malaga's rich history.
To become fully immersed in all that Malaga has to offer, it is advisable to visit during either Holy Week or the Malaga Fair celebrations in August, during which times the quiet alleys of the historic centre come alive with music and dancing.
However, for such busy periods, booking hotels far in advance is strongly recommended, though it may be possible to stay in a resort further along the coast and travel into the city for the festivities.
