Corvera Airport "Would welcome Ryanair"

Corvera Airport 'Would welcome Ryanair'

The Regional Minister of Culture and Tourism for Murcia, Pedro Alberto Cruz, said today how the region "would enthusiastically welcome" Ryanair to Corvera Airport.

He referred specifically to the Airline's strained relationship with the AENA state-owned operators of Alicante's El Altet airport, commenting how Corvera would represent a "fresh start".

Following the announcement earlier in the week that both San Javier and Corvera airports could be operational at the same time, the Minister remarked that Corvera Airport "has incredible potential, is in a great location and can adapt to meet the needs of tourists and airlines."

Speaking to Europa Press, he said how Corvera - being a new airport - was well placed to serve the demands of "low cost" airlines, whose requirements were different to more conventional carriers, and which many airports were unable to service adequately.

Cruz acknowledged a possible conflict with El Altet in trying to attract Ryanair to the airport.

"AENA is not going to manage Corvera. It will be managed by a private consortium" Bill - Mon, 12th Nov 2012

Not correct : Management of Corvera will be by AENA, as agreed with AEROMUR who built the airport.

AENA is not going to manage Corvera. It will be managed by a private consortium.

Of course Ryanair would announced new flights to Alicante : they are just playing their usual game pf playing one off against the other. I have absolutely no doubt that they would kick either airport into touch should the other offer them a more attractive deal.

Hardly a fresh start, given Corvera will be managed by AENA. Maybe the The Regional Minister of Culture and Tourism for Murcia is going to grease Ryanair's palm with an increased subsidy ? Strangely, the same day this statement came out, Ryanair announced more routes from Alicante

Of course they would! They would welcome the 'Condor Legion' as long as they would land there!

Some strange statements coming out of the Murcia Regional Government in recent days, and this one is no different. Corvera is to be managed by AENA, so this is unlikely to change the relationship with Ryanair. With the Ryanair's commitment of reintroducing more flights into Alicante announced in the past week, I think San Javier and Corvera will need to start begging for flights. Let's not forget, only Jet2 actually backed Corvera publically.
