New Car Park Policy Could Cause Chaos At Malaga Airport
Malaga airport on the Costa Del Sol recently revised it’s car parking system for short stay visitors, a move which has proved to be extremely popular with regular airport users. However, the Costa Union National Transit (translated) members who staff the car park have demanded that the changes go further.
Closed Daily For Two Hours
The car park and airport operator has agreed to give all staff a two hour daily siesta from 2pm til 4pm (except on Sundays). These changes will be implemented on Wednesday 20th September 2017. During this time, no staff will be on duty so the car park exits will be closed. However, the entrances will remain open, so travellers will be able to park up as they drop off and pick up passengers.
Enrique Sanchez is the President of the Costa Union National Transit (translated). He says “To be absolutely clear, we are not closing the car parks during siesta time. People will still be able to park up, and use the car parks as normal. They just won’t be able to leave the car park until 4pm when the staff return from their well deserved siesta”.
Ripping Off Travellers
Martin Brundal from the Association Of British Car Park Users In Spain says that this change isn’t about working conditions for staff, it’s just another way to rip off customers. “If you enter the car park at 2pm, you will not be able to leave until 4pm, even if you only need to be there for ten minutes. This means that people will end up paying a lot more money to sit around twiddling their thumbs. This is why Brexit is so important. We can’t have unelected people telling us Brits when we can leave car parks”
The airport are expecting long queues as people try to exit the car park at 4pm every day. To alleviate this, they have opened an express lane which motorists will be able to use to leave the car park ahead of other customers. Access to the express lane will cost €40 and is payable at the main car park pay stations.
