News on the new terminal in Malaga airport…

The new Terminal 3 in Malaga airport had a smooth first day and reports no complaints after more than 10,000 passengers and nearly 4,000 bags had passed through its systems. “Until 5.30pm we have not registered any incidents or claims related to the actual working of the T3,” says airport director Mario Otero.

This will come as a relief to operators who used 3,000 volunteers to test the systems before opening. The extensive testing was done to avoid incidents similar to those following the opening of Terminal 5 in Heathrow, where hundreds of passengers were left stranded or without luggage following technical malfunctions.

In his speech at the inauguration, King Juan Carlos said that the new terminal would energise the tourist activity in Andalucía and reinforce its prominent position in the airport network of Spain.

More than €400 million has been invested in this project and it is expected to more than double the airport’s passenger capacity.

    Glad to see they are applying some of the lessons learned from other not so successful starts like that at Heathrow that you mention.
