Just read on the Malaga Airport facebook page that they have introduced biometric passport control! Should be fun! I found it takes just as long at Gatwick as going through the normal check in. Nobody knows how to use it, they have to have someone there to monitor it and what happens if you've got one of the old style passports? Also, last time I went through Malaga airport, in and out the checks were very limited and the border control only glanced at most of the passports and if you just held it up in front of them they waved you through.
