Malaga airport tourist trap

Malaga Airport

HUNDREDS of passengers were left stranded at Malaga Airport during the current taxi strike after their planes landed after the last bus left.

The travellers emerged from the airport just after the bus service finished at around 1am, leaving them to stand with their luggage hoping for help to arrive.  According to media reports, one woman said, “some people started calling family or friends, but we don’t know what to do.”

Some passengers apparently started shouting at taxi drivers watching the scene with their lights off, telling them they should be doing something to help.

The strike, which began last Sunday, has seen travel chaos hit Malaga after taxi drivers have downed tools indefinitely in an effort to stop private hire company, Cabify, which they claim is taking their work.
