Corvera Airport Update
The president of AENA Jaime Garcia-Legaz has recently revealed further details about the progress being made towards the opening of Corvera airport. He has stated that there is still a lot of work to be done before the Region of Murcia International Airport can welcome its first flights but that in his opinion the airport should open between the 7th and 15th January 2019.
This date is slightly later than the December 2018 opening which was mentioned previously, however this would indicate that things are progressing towards obtaining the necessary licences and permits. He also stated that it would be logical to wait until after the busy Christmas period before the transition of flights from San Javier airport so any initial teething problems can be dealt with during the quieter period of early January.
Negotiations have already commenced with Ryanair, Easyjet, Iberia Express and Volotea concerning possible routes into and out of Corvera. It is expected that the choice of routes available to clients will only increase with the current schedules being maintained. It has been confirmed that there will be a public bus service to and from the airport but specifics haven’t yet been published as this will depend on the frequency of flights.
