Corvera will add six international connections with the United Kingdom and Ireland and also with Norway.

This summer, the international airport of the Region of Murcia will recover the routes with Ireland and the United Kingdom that it had before the pandemic and is planning an average of 76 return flights per week during the summer period. Domestic connections are being maintained and work is underway to add Barcelona and Madrid as soon as possible.

Activity at the airport grew by more than 30 percent last year, according to the Councillor for Tourism. Marcos Ortuño points out that in January, 13,600 passengers were registered; this is 720 percent more than the previous year. There are currently 61 flights a week, to which a further 15 will be added. “We are going to have 76 return flights every week with 22 cities in 7 countries, with almost one million scheduled seats. This means recovering 96 percent of the seats we had in 2019”, Ortuño pointed out.

Before the pandemic, 50 percent of international tourism came from the United Kingdom and Ireland. It is essential for the sector to recover this presence. Therefore, Corvera will add six international connections with these countries and also with Norway.

Work is also being done to obtain routes to Portuguese cities, Paris and Barcelona. The regional administration considers it essential to recover the connection with Madrid. “We have started the procedures to obtain from the Spanish Government the declaration of public service obligation of this connection with Madrid. Without a direct rail connection and without the AVE, there is no other travel alternative with competitive travel times”, concluded the Regional Minister of Tourism.
