One of the most popular ways passengers arriving at Malaga Airport use to get to their final destination is via a taxi. There are ample taxis available right outside the airport 24 hours a day.
The taxi rank at the airport is located on the right as you exit through the main doors at the arrivals hall. There is normally a queue for taxis but is usually moves quite quickly.
A taxi from the airport will be able to take a maximum of four passengers, three in the back and one in the front. If you have small children you will need to have made prior arrangements with a private transfer company or hired a car as by law, small children have to sit on the appropriate child seats, something most taxis will not have to hand.
If you do have small children or babies you can call a taxi once you have arrived at the airport and state your specific requirements. They should then be able to dispatch a driver with the necessary equipment.
