Many visitors to the stand had already visited Sunset Beach Club or the Costa del Sol, and with frequent flights between Cork and Malaga, getting here has never been easier! If you entered our competition at the Show, make sure to check your email as we will be shortly sending notification to the lucky person who has won a 3 night winter stay at Sunset Beach Club!
It’s Semana Santa! This week is holy week all over the world, but not many other countries celebrate with such style as Spain. Rather than Good friday and bank holiday Monday, here the festive days are Thursday and Friday where you see an incredible cultural display with all main cities hosting enormous parades that last the entire weekend. Malaga, Sevilla and Granada are all very popular over the Easter period, here in Malaga extra schedules of public transport will be added and the town will be overwhelmed once again with the hustle and bustle of visitors from all over Europe.
Yesterday, Monday 15th March saw the opening of the new terminal at Malaga International Airport! If you’ve been to Benalmadena before, or in fact anywhere on the Costa del Sol, then you will already be familiar with Malaga Airport, and may have seen the new facility being developed over previous years. The new terminal 3 will boast 180 check-in counters, 48 boarding gates and 26 baggage belts and therefore creating the capacity of handling up to 30 million passengers per year! New roads and new stops for public transport will all aid in the usability of this fantastic new facility which is part of the biggest transformation in the history of the airport.
