Cheap flights from Edinburgh to Malaga are a popular choice with sun-worshippers – this is the Costa del Sol, or ‘coast of the sun’, after all. But not everyone who hops on a plane from Scotland to Spain is purely here for the glorious weather. From Malaga Airport, it’s only a 20-minute drive to the heart of the port city itself, which lines up a long list of things to do beyond the area’s famous beaches. Follow the narrow streets around the Gothic cathedral, for example, and you’ll uncover rustic bars, quaint shops and traditional restaurants aplenty. Ready to book your Edinburgh to Malaga flight?

You’ll leave Scotland from Edinburgh Airport (EDI). It’s west of the city centre, in the Islington area. You’ll arrive in Spain at Malaga Airport (AGP), officially known as Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport. It’s about five miles out from Malaga city centre, or a 20 to 25-minute bus journey.

Take a flight from Edinburgh to Malaga and you’re headed for Spain’s Andalucia region on its southern coast. This is the Spain you’ve read about in the guide books – think sultry flamenco dancers, racy bullfights and crumbling Moorish masterpieces. It’s also home to some incredible cities, including Malaga itself. There’s a regular bus service from the airport – the Linea A Express – which leaves the main terminal and takes about 25 minutes max. Plus, you can easily get to beach resorts along the Costa del Sol if you’d rather head straight for the sand. Torremolinos, Benalmadena and Marbella are some of the best-known names in this neck of the woods. And with southern Spain’s balmy Mediterranean climate – which is an average of 26°C in August – you’d be mad to miss them out.
