Murcia - Corvera Castellon Airport Update - 15/12/2010

In the future months Murcia expect to be opening the new airport CORVERA (30 minutes by car away from our holiday rental apartment) to encourage more tourists to visit the wonderful region of Costa Calida, Spain. All the new roads are reported to be in place with signs up en route and with work on the communication tower well established. Further info to follow...

The new airport will be within half an hour’s drive to La Torre Golf Resort & many of the budget airlines have reportedly booked hangers here to add this new Murcia airport to their destinations list.

Along with San Javier (Murcia) & Alicante, the new airport will be the third airport within 1 hour’s drive of La Torre Golf Resort making this south eastern region of Spain the ideal choice for obtaining the best deal for flights from Europe & our Murcia Golf apartment an ideal rental option.

The new airport will be directly linked to the several new motorways infrastructure across Murcia and to the main A7 north-south motorway.  The Spanish Airport Authority AENA intends to continue operating the existing airport at San Javier and has invested heavily in constructing a second control tower and a second runway.

The project has been promoted by the regional government for many years as an alternative to the existing airport at Murcia San Javier which handles over two million (mainly British passengers) a year.
