So why do we need a new Airport in Corvera ?

The question is not only why we would need a new airport in Corvera, but importantly how crazy it would be to close San Javier! The idiotic Murcian government think that closing San Javier will mean automatic transfer of flights to Corvera, and so claim that the project was a success! But the fact will be that many passengers would use Alicante instead -certainly the case with all those users from the Torrevieja area -which are a very significant section of passengers using San Javier. And with less passengers, airlines would simply cut routes or increase capacity at Alicante. So if they want to open Corvera, let them and see what they make of it, but for the region's sake, let them not close San San Javier!
