Gibraltar airport is a great alternative to Malaga airport for those looking for flights from the Costa del Sol to London. The flight time comprises 2 hours and 50 minutes and non-stop flights are operated for a fairly low price by both scheduled and low-cost carriers.
Peak travel times between the Costa del Sol and the UK tend to be school holidays and the months between April and October when the weather in the south of Spain is pleasantly warm. At times such as these it is advisable to book flights well in advance of the date of travel in order to find the cheapest offers. If travellers are flexible, prices can be remarkably cheap: look for mid-week flights and avoid school holidays.
Public buses do run between Gibraltar and the Costa del Sol resorts. However, most travellers will tend to hire a car to get to and from the airport.
