Murcia's San Javier Airport not to close imminently

Murcia's San Javier Airport not to close imminently

Spanish Unions sources representing AENA employees at Murcia's San Javier Airport were quoted in the Spanish Press yesterday as claiming that the Airport will not close in favour of Corvera Airport.

At least not for the foreseeable future.

It is expected that in a few days time all employees working from the airport will be informed of their duties for the period between October 2015 to March 2016, meaning that even if Corvera does open before that time, the older facility will continue to operate until March 2016 as a minimum.

Of course, this poses the following question : If both airports are to operate for a period at the same time - and that San Javier Employees are to be transferred to Corvera Airport once operational - how can one workforce be expected to operate two airports without compromising levels of safety and efficiency ?

And if Corvera is not likely to be operational until March 2016 it overshoots Regional Secretary for State Rafael Catala's promise that "Corvera Airport will be operational by March 2015" by a nice round 12 months.

Well Im not holding my breath on any of it. On the bus, off the bus!. Why are there not as many people transitting through MJV and Alicante's figures have gone up? Not that suddenly more people holiday in Alicante and less like San Javier. Its still people going to San Javier but due to the uncertainty of whether they will fly into MJV or Corvera they fly to Alicante to be sure then drive down. I prefer MJV to change
