Airports and Airlines Spain
There are a total of 55 Civilian airports in Spain, including the Canary and Balearic Islands, and Ceuta & Melilla, of which 49 are owned & operated by the Spanish Airport Authority (AENA) with the remainder being privately owned.
This number includes San Javier Airport, but not Corvera airport - both in Murcia. Plans are in place to close San Javier and simultaneoulsy commence operations at Corvera.
The new airport at Corvera will beocme the first in Spain to be Privately owned, but publicly run, with AENA taking a stake in the airport in lieu of compensation for the closure of San Javier.
