Manchester To Malaga: Cheapest/most Frequent?

Thu Feb 02, 2006 6:20 am

What is the cheapest and most-frequent airline to serve Malaga, Spain from Manchester, UK? It's for a group of about 15pax. It's actually going to be from the US, however BMI appears to have by far the cheapest fares to MAN (or anywhere in Europe) from the US. Dates are May 27 - June 4. Thanks for any help!

If you all go on the same airline the average price is going to be higher, split yourselves into groups of 3,4, or 5 and book separately on different airlines to get a lower average price.

Demand is high on those dates because Monday 29th May is a bank holiday.

Also consider BA and IB codes on BA flights and www.jet2.com

MAN-AGP is a well served route. Bmibaby offer daily flights, Monarch Scheduled offer up to 3 times daily flights during the summer, Jet2 offer daily flights, and so do GB Airways, which is a BA franchise. Air Scotland have announced today that the are going to start a weekly MAN-AGP route as well. As for the cheapest, it can vary. Bmibaby had some really cheap fares to AGP, and Monarch and Jet2 have had sales on lately but think these may have finished. Its definitely worth shopping around as you may find yourself a nice deal. I think Jet2 have some kind of group bookig facility as well, so it might be worth checking that out.

One thing to be wary off is the luggage allowance. You will be allowed two bags when you come over from the usa but once you fly on the loco's you are only allowed 20kgs, so its worth remembering that too. Hope this helps.

They have three daily flights to AGP

ZB 654
09:00 depart Manchester
12:50 arrive Malaga

ZB 612
14:05 depart Manchester
17:55 arrive Malaga

ZB 660
15:25 depart Manchester
19:25 arrive Malaga


Operated by GB Airways

BA / GT operate a daily flight.

BA6828
07:30 depart Manchester
11:30 arrive Malaga

If I'm not mistaken, Monarch Scheduled is the most frequent airline between MAN and AGP.

These are the only airlines I am aware of, I'm sure there are more!

If you are also going to Granada bear in mind that there is a www.ryanair.com flight from Liverpool LPL to Granada GRX.
