Facts and History about Murcia Airport
Murcia Airport, or Murcia-Corvera Airport as it is locally known, is operated by Aena, the Spanish Airport Authority, the airport is a gateway to the Murcia region and serves a large number of budget and charter airlines. The airport is close to the northern coastline of the Mar Menor, a favourite destination for beach-goers.
The brand new Murcia Corvera Airport replaces the former Murcia–San Javier Airport and will be used by all commercial aircraft. Bigger and far better equipped, this new Murcia Corvera Airport will take over custom from budget airlines like Easyjet and Ryanair, Jetairfly and Norwegian Air Shuttle, Iberia and Jet2.com, which up to now have been flying into San Javier Airport. Easyjet is still hoping that at least two of its aircraft will be permitted to continue to operate out of San Javier in addition to Corvera.
