Spain's Minister for Development, Ana Pastor, commented yesterday how the country's new airport management model has been created with assisting the regions and provinces with their plans for economic growth, and that there will be opportunities for private investment.

With regards to the subject of Murcia's airports, the Minister confirmed that her department and AENA still need to define the transfer process between San Javier and Corvera airports, and bring the ongoing negotiation process to a satisfactory conclusion.

I agree completely with David. Two white elephants, Corvera and Paramount World. Designed, like so many projects : Not for the good of the many but for the pockets of the few!

Do not close San Javier airport - it is vital for tourism and local income. Corvera is a white elephant dreamt up by Murcia regioanal Govt to support the other white elephant of Paramount theme park. It is incomprehensible to spend money on another ghost airport like Castellon and others.
