Paramount and Corvera airport to be promoted at World Tourism Exhibition

The region of Murcia is to have their own dedicated stand at the World Tourism Exhibition, to be held in London between the 5th and 8th of November.

The stand is expected to showcase the region's Corvera International Airport and Paramount Pictures theme park projects.

Under the promotional brand of "Destination Spain : Murcia", the regional office of tourism will hold various meetings and discussions with a number of established tour operators to promote both the flagship projects mentioned abve, together with Golf and Watersports tourism around the Mar Menor area.

The World Tourism Exhibition will attract over 50,000 industry professionals, and is expected to generate around 2 Billion pounds sterling worth of business.

The Town of Lorca will be one of the induvidual regional municipalities featured on the exhibition stand. This news comes barely one week after the floods which devastated the same town stricken by two earthquakes 18 months earlier.

It was reported today in the Spanish press that the proposed air corridor for civil flights into Corvera is unuseable. Aircraft were not able to receive signals from the airports landing system. Central Government have also blocked AENA from discussing with Corvera management the closure of San Javier and transfer of business. There is alot of questions that should be asked of those in power in Murcia.

If Corvera airport is to open in the spring of 2013, and San Javier , Murcia to close, why can I book Easyjet flights to San Javier up to August 2013, and I cant find any flights into Corvera.And is the late opening of Corvera spelling the death knell for Paramount in Spain?

Whilst I agree with what you are saying Tyler, it could be argued that the airport and theme park are being showcased to attract investors in order to ensure that they ARE both completed. Or at least attract sufficient interest from tour operators to make the theme park a more attractive investment for backers.

Seems a bit premature to be promoting an airport that hasn't opened yet and a theme park that still hasn't got sufficient investment to complete the work required.
