Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - NEWS -

Bud­get air­line Ryanair has fi­nally con­firmed that its planes will op­er­ate at Corvera air­port (Mur­cia In­ter­na­tional RMU) from Jan­uary 15 due to the clo­sure of Mur­cia-San Javier air­port. The low fares air­line has been sell­ing tick­ets for sev­eral months for Mur­cia with­out spec­i­fy­ing whether the flight is to San Javier (MJV) or Corvera (RMU), which had caused con­cern amongst pas­sen­gers. Un­til the end of March the bud­get op­er­a­tor will op­er­ate routes from Mur­cia In­ter­na­tional air­port to Birm­ing­ham, Leeds/Brad­ford and Dublin twice a week; to East Mid­lands, London Lu­ton and Manch­ester three times a week; and London Stansted five times a week. Then from April 1 un­til the end of Oc­to­ber flights are sched­uled twice a week to Glas­gow and Leeds/Brad­ford; four times a week to Bournemouth and Birm­ing­ham; six times a week to Manch­ester; and daily to East Mid­lands, London Lu­ton, London Stansted and Dublin.

Jet2 and easy­Jet have con­firmed that they are mov­ing some of their flights to Corvera and Span­ish low fares air­line Volotea has an­nounced a route to Oviedo in As­turias. How­ever, Bri­tish Air­ways has can­celled its route to London Heathrow from Mur­cia and TUI and Nor­we­gian have not re­vealed whether they will con­tinue op­er­at­ing in the re­gion. Mur­cia In­ter­na­tional Air­port stands 33 kilo­me­tres in­land from San Javier air­port - that will be shut down at the end of De­cem­ber.
