Getting to Gibraltar

Scheduled direct flights to Gibraltar International Airport are available daily from London Heathrow (LHR) with British Airways and from London Gatwick (LGW), Bristol (BRS) and Manchester (MAN) with EasyJet. You may visit the official Gibraltar International Airport website for further details.

Royal Air Maroc who operates a twice-weekly service to Gibraltar from Casablanca Mohammed V International Airport (CMN) via Tangier Ibn Battouta Airport (TNG) offers another possible option. For further details on this route please visit the Royal Air Maroc website.

We have arranged for complimentary coaches to be available to collect you on arriving in Gibraltar on any of the direct flights.

Malaga International Airport (AGP) is the nearest alternative international hub. It is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes drive from the Gibraltar border. The main European airlines operate a scheduled service to and from this airport. We will organise 3 complimentary coaches a day on Monday the 4th and Tuesday the 5th of June for your arrival, and on 7th and 8th of June for the return flights. Please complete the “Participant’s Details Form” (which will be sent to you together with your invoice once you have registered) confirming details of your arrival and departure flights, your contact details and confirmed accommodation. Alternatively we could assist you in booking a taxi to collect you on arrival at Malaga International Airport, which will drop you off you at the entrance of the Gibraltar border. A taxi stand operated by the Gibraltar Taxi Service is a mere five-minute walk away, right after crossing the border into Gibraltar (click here to see map).
