Corvera and San Javier To Operate Simultaneously

Tue 6th Nov 2012
Corvera and San Javier To Operate Simultaneously

The Murcia Regional Minister for Public Works, Antonio Sevilla, has announced that both Covera and San Javier airports will operate simultaneously within the next five months.

His announcement came during a presentation at the annual regional assembly of Murcia, discussing budget and investment plans for 2013.

Antonio Sevilla stressed that operations cannot be simply switched from San Javier across to Corvera. Instead a staged transition period of between two to six months would be required, the duration of which would depend on AENA technicians moving flight slots and resources to the new Corvera Airport facility.

Corvera Airport is in the final stages of completion with only a further €107,000 required to complete essential electrical connections and complimentary infrastructure.

However, before receiving the first flights, Corvera Airport over the next few months must still obtain important safety certification of facilities and airspace approval by EASA and AENA.

Call me cynical, I think this is just the Murcia Regional Government trying to keep positive thoughts in the public domain. Earlier this year the airport was complete and ready for business according to their own press release, and now we know it still requires completion of "essential electrical connections", and just as important the safety certification. There is spin and spin, and when you have to much you get dizzy and this is whats happening with whats going or not going on at Corvera.

Perhaps this could be why the likes of Jet2 are so reluctant to name which Murcia airport they will be flying to in 2013 ?

... So in very simple terms he is saying that by the start of the Easter / Early Summer period of 2013 there could be a situation where BOTH airports are open for the whole of the Summer season ???
