The new Murcia Airport is located near to Fuente Alamo. It will be called Corvera International Airport named after the nearest village. It has recently been announced that there will be a 6 month delay in the completion of the airport, with a new official date for the finalisation of the works - June 2011 and an estimated inauguration for September / October 2011. However, we all know from experience that things don´t always go to plan! They are currently working on the airport 24 hours a day, 6 days a week.
The rumours are that many of the low cost airlines will use this airport and the reason that there are limited flights from Murcia San Javier at the moment is that San Javier wanted the airlines to sign new 5 year contracts.
Further up date to follow shortly.
